    Lovely lunch at the Burrawang General Store, it’s a favourite when we have guests for the weekend. Really enjoyed the Sweet and Salty Salad. There is a cute gift shop out the back which made a lovely end to the visit.

    A great lunch at the Burrawang General Store as usual. The barramundi is always excellent and there is a small but good selection of wines. There are various seating options - outside in the sun if warm enough, inside by the wood burning fire if not. The service was helpful and fast. All good!

    Food was fabulous. I had the Pie of the Day, which was chicken and leek, with a side of mashed potato. It was one of the best pies I have had and the mash was delicious. The service was fine, but not great. The experience as a whole could of been improved with better service.

    A little disappointed, as I had my elderly Mum with me and wanted to sit inside. The front steps were too hard for her to access. I did ask about access to the staff member but she wasn’t sure, asked another team member and told me no not possible. After ordering takeaway, I went for a walk to the the back of the building, where I could see rear access. I spoke to the lady in the gift shop and she explained this all too me.

    The same outstanding experience as usual for this standout venue. I'm always drawn to the consistent quality of the dishes from a menu that provides variety and interest. My Sweet & Salty Salad with Pretzel Chicken was delicious, a range of textures and flavours in every single bite. Our other dish was Black Bean Fritters, a great vegetarian option - a far cry from a boring salad. Absolutely delicious. Despite all the difficulties hospitality venues are experiencing, the staff were unfailingly helpful and pleasant, and the coffee excellent.

    We had the breakfast burger - for lunch - and it was absolutely delicious. At $20 a burger, we were dubious, but both said it was one of the best burgers we had ever had. Plus the sweet potato hash brown was simply wonderful. It was a great lunch and the staff could not have been more attentive. Really would recommend this cafe for breakfast, lunch, or scones/tea......

    I had Jalapeno corn bread with avocado, poached eggs and sweet potatoes. The eggs was overcooked, not runny, not sure if suppose to be like that but I prefer it runny. The cornbread was really good and very tasty.

    A top spot. Beautiful location in a heritage building, the food is always excellent and imaginative. We were there for breakfast; perfect scrambled eggs and a choice of bread for toast, plus bacon cooked exactly the way I asked. The coffee can't be faulted - whether it's a cool, wet Highlands day or brilliantly sunny, the Burrawang General Store is always the place to go.

    We absolutely loved our brunch at Burrawang! I had the sweet and salty salad with the pretzel coated buttermilk fried chicken- yum! And my girlfriends had Ella’s breakfast which they also said was delicious. Service was fast, attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

    A really stunning old building with a menu that has something for everyone. I can't go past the Sweet & Salty Salad - pretzel coated chicken with a salad of blue cheese, pecans, bacon and greens. A Pimms & Lemonade was the perfect accompaniment. The garden is a hidden treasure when the weather is good, but worth a look at any time. Eating on the verandah is also an option, looking out over the beautiful village of Burrawant.

    Given we are Dining in the Time of Covid, this unique little cafe managed to seamlessly offer perfect service, delicious beverages and to-do-for food, all in a 100% Covid-safe environment. Bot my friend and I had the barramundi, whilst I chose a local Artemis Pinot Noir and she had a Pimms Cocktail. Couldn't fault a thing. Everything was tasty, served with care and the environment was cosy, happy and relaxed. 13/10 from me. Don't miss this darling little spot.

    The girls were not up to scratch with details of the menu. My Pork & mustard pie was overcooked with the contents dry & small amount. Vegetables few except the mash. Dessert, sticky pudding ok but not the honey comb on top which was out of place, can easily break a tooth when the texture of the pudding soft and catches you unaware.

    Great atmosphere here with the old signage and country store feel. A short but imaginative menu, more brunch style, with a couple of nice lunch specials. Recommend the mushroom stack with goat's curd, and the special pork and mustard pie was filling and presented well with mashed potato and glazed carrot. Local wines are good too.
