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.
I find that food always tastes better when consumed outdoors and/or with a view. The cafe is open daily from 8am and serves breakfast until 11:30am, when the lunch service starts. The menu is not large but contains healthy fresh dishes that rely heavily on locally sourced produce. Herbs from the gallery garden, free-range Hawkesbury eggs, olive oil from Mudgee and coffee from Katoomba are among some of the ingredients used.
The roasted tarragon chicken tasted of spring and was bursting with the freshness of sweet young peas and asparagus. This was contrasted and complemented by the spicy salsa verde and the creamy leek and potato puree.
As well as the standard menu, there are daily blackboard specials and a range of delicious handmade cakes. The gluten-free walnut and cake was sweet and moist and tasted of Christmas. Cafe at Lewers is licensed and serves a small select range of local wines, craft beers and cocktails. The cafe has menu items suitable for vegetarians, gluten-free dishes and gluten-free options on other dishes. If advised the staff will work around allergies if informed.
Cafe at Lewers is a lovely place to enjoy good food and company in beautiful surrounds.
