Welcoming rustic cafe in Mount Nebo in a natural setting within D'Aguilar National Park offering great service, delicious coffee, tasty light meals and tantalising desserts.

Cafe in the Mountains is in an amazing location, within green all around, with lots of flowers in the outdoor that make the place attractive and charming. Family and pet-friendly cafe, with a large inventory of cold and hot drinks, scones, biscuits, muffins and food that goes well with coffee.

Sarah manages the cafe wonderfully and all the personnel are professional and fast. The atmosphere is very relaxing, with options where to seat. There are tables and benches in the outdoor area, an indoor lounge and an undercover veranda at the back.

The variety of seating, from couches for conversations or chill out with a book, chairs around the tables for eating, outdoor benches for more contact with nature, are perfect for different occasions.

The veranda is my favourite spot and I tend to sit there with my hiking group to enjoy the refreshments. The veranda overlooks the hill at the back where there is a pond with ducks and in spring, there are stunning jacaranda trees with their long-lasting lavender coloured flowers.

There are birds around the cafe and you have to be careful because there is a laughing kookaburra which swoops on the tables and manage to take away the food on the plate.

On the walls of the veranda, there are nice paintings of local fauna and inside there paintings hanging on the walls to add more colour to the place.

It is a great place to socialise over a great hot drink and homemade cakes! After a hike at Mount Nebo or Mount Glorious with my group, it is gratifying to stop in Cafe in the Mountains to share reflections and get to know the people better.

Cafe in the Mountains reinvents the counter culture, broadening the spectrum of experiences for the customers. A place that fills you with good feelings because of the nature around you, the flowers, the pots and the birds.

Great article and location Cris, not to mention the food. I don't think I would like to sit next to the mural with all those hungry looking birds watching coffee and cake.
