This was a beautiful Sunday mid-day and the place was fully packed with people. Luckily there was a table available and so I was served fairly quickly. I ordered one of the lunch specials - a dish of pan seared bream fillet ($27), mixed with grapefruit, blood orange, potatoes and pea topped with lemon dressing. The food was perfectly presented and beautifully cooked; especially the grapefruit and blood orange, which just blended so well with the fish. The taste was absolutely delicious.
As Mother's Day is upon us (12 May), the cafe is offering Mother's Day Menu, which includes special breakfast menu ($29 per person) and three-course lunch menu ($60 per person). This lovely place together with good food would certainly be a delightful choice to celebrate this special day. As this cafe is popular, make sure you make the booking in advance.
The garden is also a good spot for a family outing; there is a dedicated place where kids can pick a tool and dig in the pile of sand to make a sandcastle or anything they like. The kids can unlock their creative potential. Only the sky is the limit.
The Gallery Cafe is about 40 minutes drive from Sydney's CBD. If you are planning to take a public transport, it is also easily accessible by taking a train; it is a five-minute walk from Gymea Railway Station (Illawarra line). Get off the train, take the right turn and then turn left. Follow the sign to the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre.
