I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

A socially inclusive community enterprise

In Lawson, next to the carpark behind the Lawson Hotel, you will find a cafe with a difference, Ben Roberts Cafe. This establishment provides a friendly safe workplace for young disabled people who have an interest in the hospitality industry.

The atmosphere is friendly and the food is delicious, most of it prepared on site using local ingredients. You can sit inside, on the glassed in verandah or under the red umbrellas on the outside deck.

The menu has a variety of items suitable for breakfast and lunch under $20. They also offer a daily soup served with sourdough and a smoothie of the week. Gluten-free bread is available and they are happy to provide vegetarian options. The homemade beef and Guinness pie for $16 was very tasty with crisp puff pastry that was filled with a chunky tender beef stew and the accompanying house-made chutney added a touch of spice.

For $16, the summer salad was excellent value and full of healthy ingredients, the caramelised walnuts were a great crunchy addition. The cake counter was full of inviting baked treats but we were too full to indulge. The staff were friendly and eager to please and the coffee was well made.

Pop in for coffee and cake or a meal next time you are in the Blue Mountains and enjoy the welcoming inclusive atmosphere
