10/10. Service was excellent as was the food. We shared a bunch of entrees with a wine before heading off to see a show. Every dish was amazing! Beautifully prepared and presented. Highly recommend.More

Being locals, we love being able to walk to a licensed restaurant for dinner. Gidget's offers tapas on Friday and Saturday nights and the atmosphere is cosy and inviting. I love the small bowl of pretzels to munch on while you choose from the menu....More

Went here today with my husband for lunch. We shared a salad and burger. Wow! The flavors were fresh and delicious. Loved all the elements of both meals. I also like that this place does its breakfast menu all day.

Description
Gidget's Cafe was opened in June 2015 to provide THE BEST coffee accompanied with tHE best FOOD in the Northern Illawarra. Our reason d'etre "Good Food - Good Company - Good Life" - simple but something we strive each day to achieve. We are family friendly and have many seating formats starting from a single spot for that quick expresso to a table for 8 to cater for all. We are also now fully licensed so come in an try the craft beers on tap as well as a great selection of wines and spirits. Also open for Dinner Thursday - Saturday evenings.
