Today, I visited this cafe with 7 other relatives, including 2 children under 7. When we arrived, we asked for a table outside, as we wanted a larger table with some nice views. We were informed that while we were able to sit outside, that we would probably receive lower service than the customers inside due to the lady being... More

Kookaburra Cafe has been here for many many years. It offers a great view from its back deck as well as excellent pizza and pasta. My extended family went here on a Sunday lunch and everyone loved their food. Thanks Kookaburra Cafe.

Venture out the back to find a nook just for you. Or book the entire space for a function. Stumbled upon this quaint cafe and were pleasantly surprised after initial hesitations. Friendly service and generous portions of fresh Caesar Salad washed down beautifully with a pot of tea and great conversation with lofty views. I love history and this place... More

We went for a games afternoon and even on a dreadfully windy day we enjoyed it. We had lunch and afternoon tea while we were there. The food was tasty and the service friendly. I'd be happy to go back. Be warned, though, parking can be an issue. Try the side streets.

It had been a while since I'd visited this iconic cafe. I remember many enjoyable evenings with friends and I especially remember the pork ribs which are still on the menu. Popped into the Kookaburra for a late pizza after being to another function. The place was almost empty but it was 8.30 - that's late to eat out in... More

The staff are wonderful and also take their time to have a friendly conversation with you.. The pizza is heaps better there than the pizza stores like dominos.. Great selection of milkshakes and also has pizza flavours you won't find at the pizza stores... Also has huge pizzas for parties I love it here...

We walked past for lunch and were greeted by friendly staff. We shared a lamb pizza which was delicious. Staff were polite and the Resturant had a nice atmoposhere. Reasonably priced too. It's worth a try if you're in Paddington.
