    This was a great place to go for lunch. The food was beautiful, I had the beef cheeks and apricot scones. The prices were very reasonable and the portions were generous. Great quality. Will definitely go again.

    Whilst we enjoyed our brunch at Cafe Woodworks, overall we were disappointed with our experience. The staff were attentive and friendly, however given it was Mother’s Day they were frantically busy. It took a long time for someone to take our order, one of our dishes was forgotten and the hot drinks came out after the food. The food was a little on the cool side when served, which detracted from the taste a bit. I could tell the staff were trying their best and maybe our experience was reflective of the end of a busy morning.

    Service and ambience was lovely. We ordered a cheeseburger and the chicken risotto special. The burger was not particularly apoealing, not assembled well, under seasoned and lacking sufficient pickles and sauce. Pattie was dry and not seasoned. Risotto looked great but again was not seasoned sufficiently. Both dishes were average

    We love Cafe Woodworks. Always great food, and helpful, friendly staff. Not a huge menu but what’s on it, is varied and tasty. Whether we go for breakfast or lunch, we are always happy with the food. A big shout out to to our favourite server Karena- her big smile and enthusiasm are infectious. We drive for 45 minutes to get to Cafe Woodworks and it’s so worth it! The Woodwork Gallery next door is always worth a walk round afterwards. They have wooden sculptures, paintings, and crafts for sale from artists and craftsmen all over Australia.
