    As of 1 June, we are delighted to open our doors again to you all.  We have fireside seating, sunny winter deck and gazebos and for weekend extra seating, our repurposed cinema space for dining.

    There are rules of course to keep us all safe. Social distancing and restricted numbers for dining with strict cleaning routines are of course part of cafe life now.  We can seat 14 inside the cafe, 5 on the deck, 5 in each gazebo and 20 in the cinema when available.  Parties of 10 or less is another NSW rule we need to comply with.

    To ensure you get to enjoy your favourite cake, coffee, chat, pizza or beer, we really encourage you to book ahead by calling us.  Takeaway is also an option and we appreciate a call ahead to minimise waiting times.  69482950.  Or, pop in order take a stroll through our glorious streets and come by again when its ready to go.   Tumbarumba has plenty of prime picnic spots if you want to enjoy the great outdoors.
