Blackheath

Best cafe Anonymous in blue-mountains for 2016

Coffee is one of the best I have had, but the pumpkin loaf with Marscapone is insanely delicious !!!!

My long black was quite dry, and slightly bitter. The hot water added was clearly too hot. With a cooler water added, or a dash of chilled water I could see it being much better. I could see this being ok in a piccolo or smaller latte, but that's about it. The staff were nice enough, but you couldn't get a conversation if you tried. (In this instance)

Very good flat white; cappuccino not quite as good. Solid scrambled eggs.

Cassiopeia

Katoomba

Best cafe Cassiopeia in blue-mountains for 2016

Had a double shot which was nice and strong but not too overpowering Good flavor. Definitely would go back

Deserves its good rating. Coffee excellent and service terrific. Matches those we tried in Sydney

Best cafe The Elephant Bean in blue-mountains for 2016

Very relaxed vibe, exceptional soy lattes.....well balanced with coffee cutting through soy very well. Hazelnut fruit toast quite a treat too. Last time I was here was a few years ago and it's still a little gem!

What a cute cafe and excellent service. Despite high expectations the coffee didn’t disappoint me either:) Right size cup, creamy, frothy, and extra chocolate that I ordered :)

Solid coffee in a pleasant shop with great service

Glenbrook

Best cafe 2773  in blue-mountains for 2016

Amazing food, amazing coffee, very good service and the prices are pretty reasonable! Love it, worth the stop over on your way to Sydney or blue mountain

“cold brew” ($7.50)!? That’s a joke, the refused to make and iced long black. Instead they insisted on a cold brew, which is pre made in a bottle for $7.50 and it’s not raven nice.

Service and food is great at this joint, but you pay for the experience. Had a great kids area with animals which draws the mums in like flys. Coffee ??? ‘Green bean’ on site roaster. The coffee is the only let down at this place. With two top shelf baristas / cafes within 20 meters. Take some advice and take a walk to the church cafe down the road or kickaboom across the road after you finish eating.

DBL Ristretto

Springwood

Best cafe DBL Ristretto in blue-mountains for 2016

Great coffee and a great spot to stop halfway down the hill.

Best cafe The Red Door Cafe in blue-mountains for 2016

What an amazing place! Excellent welcome and service. Cake we had was beautifully presented and tasted awesome. The coffee ... perfect !!

Heavy smell of cooking in the cafe which wasn’t good for those just wanting coffee. Flat White was lacking in any significant coffee flavour. It was just like warm milky water. Service was friendly and effective.
