The Locale

Home > Newcastle > Afternoon Tea | Breakfast | Cafes | Coffee | Lunch
Published February 6th 2014
As someone who lives near New Lambton, I would say that the locals of the area are not spoilt for choice when it comes to lush cafes and fine dining. Enter, The Locale! This is a considerably new establishment, and upon my first visit I was in complete admiration for the decor and design of the cafe. It has a real rustic yet modern feel, with quirky little knick knacks at every turn. The cafe is spacious with seating both indoors and outdoors, which is necessary for the seemingly positive turnaround they have.

The menu consists of both standard and unique food and beverages, ranging from eggs Benedict to asparagus risotto with shallot confit, truffle oil and parmesan; not to mention the salted caramel milkshake that is simply delectable. The staff are all young and friendly, keen to demonstrate good customer service skills and make their patrons feel welcome. Food prices are reasonable, ranging from $5.50 - $18.50 for breakfast, brunch and lunch meals.

As someone who loves dining out for dinners and would do so every night if money grew on trees, I was disappointed that The Locale is not open for dinner, and food orders stop at around 3 pm. However, the food they do serve is almost on par with fine dining, so there isn't too much complaining here. If you wish to swing by for some mouth watering food and beverages with a side of delightful atmosphere, you will find The Locale at 28 Alma Road, New Lambton, NSW, 2305 and can contact them on 02 49579998. Meanwhile, why not check out their website.

I would highly recommend a visit to The Locale, it will definitely be becoming my local. Happy dining.

Salted caramel milkshake? I'm there!

I am always looking for somewhere different for late breakfast or a good lunch that has good food and atmosphere and this sounds like a place that I will have to try soon. Salted Caramel milkshake is just a added bonus!!

The Locale is currently open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. They have a standard a la carte menu as well as a range of tapas dishes for those who like to share and try a few different things. I've had the meatballs, calamari and a duck salad and all were divine. Hopefully enough people frequent The Locale for dinner so it stays open after summer ends.
