It is my must stop place for morning tea when travelling through town. . Their muffins are so fresh and lovely. Coffee is very good, service always with a smile. I have even called in a couple of times for lunch when travelling. The tart (usually from special board is wonderful) The special hamburger (I think it was called Cameron's... More

Thank you Robyn for your kind words. We do apologise for not being open on Sundays. We all work six days a week as a tight knit team and, while it is not quite enough, we all need a day off, thus Sunday it is. The wages would kill us and the lack of time to live would also. We... More

What a gem! Love the food, good selection & everything is absolutely delicious, excellent customer service from all the staff. We went for lunch & as soon as we were given our menus we realised we'd both forgotten our glasses. We were trying to make out the writing when a lovely man emerged from the kitchen & very discretely offered... More

Quant cafe, not recognisable from the rest if the shops, inside elegantly presented with friendly staff. Meals were good, so too is the coffee. Appears busy during lunch trade. Worth a visit!

I love eating at Porters. The food is always amazing & cooked to perfection! I usually go for the thai chicken salad or the burger, it is served with veggies. It is really delicious! Friends I go with often have the tart on the special board. I've never had it, but it gets great reviews! Service is relatively quick and... More

Previous reviews led me to porters and glad they did. Excellent coffee, great food choices - my egg and bacon roll was terrific- and staff create a welcoming environment.

We arrived just as they were due to close but ordering lunch was not a problem for them. The steak sandwich they made would have to be the best one we have ever had, the service was excellent and we will certainly eat there again next time we are in Bathurst.

I used the Tripadvisor reviews to find a place for an early lunch in Bathurst today and was very pleased to find that this cafe lives up to its reputation. We both had a coffee and something from the all-day breakfast menu. Service was prompt and staff very friendly. It is not gourmet - just well served, good food in... More

Had a family morning tea and it was great. I had scones and jam with cream, fantastic. Home made scones and REAL cream. Other family members had BLTs and no complaints. Coffee was very nice as well. Friendly quick service. Recommend a visit.
