Reader's Cafe


Indulge at our cafe

Nourish Cooking operates from Reader's Cafe and Larder. The cafe is bright and airy with an under-cover alfresco dining area that connects to a playground and park. Our style is relaxed, open and friendly. Our food is wholesome, packed full of flavour, and infused with a broad range of fresh, local, seasonal produce.

At Reader's Cafe and Larder you will find the same passion and love for food in everything we serve. From Monday to Friday (8am to 3pm) you can enjoy breakfast, morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea. On Saturdays it is breakfast only (and, of course, those all important morning tea indulgences – coffee, tea, cakes and slices). We are sure you will find something to tantalise your taste buds.

Monday to Friday (8am to 5pm)

Enjoy a hearty breakfast, taste the pure delight of artisan sourdough, savour the home-made scones and slices, nurture yourself with freshly baked pies and frittatas (served with a vibrant side-salad). While away the afternoon with a book from the library and piping hot coffee or fragrant peppermint tea. On warm days, sip juices or milk shakes in the fresh air in our alfresco area.

NOTE: First Friday of the Month: 8am to 8pm.

Saturday mornings (8am to 12 noon)

Saturday morning is breakfast-central. Morning coffee, a paper and a delicious meal from our international breakfast menu – does it get any better?

While you are at the cafe, check out our larder. We offer a range of local Hunter Valley oils, chutneys, jams and other items from artisan producers.

Farmer’s produce
