Poor air condition, you could find a bigger selection of food at a school tuckshop. No tourist information and souvenirs were displayed in a half empty cabinet. Very disappointed. Turn up take some pics of broken hill and go an experience something better!

Sorry you felt that way! We are a coffee shop during the day with a Tapas Menu weekends so we don’t have a full lunch menu. The tourist information Centre has information if that’s what you’re looking for!

Food was excellent, service was really good too. My recommendation is go in time to finish your meal before sunset and then stroll over to the memorial for sunset.

We sought a meeting with old friends during a brief stay in Broken Hill. They suggested meeting at this site situated on the so-called "line of lode". It is a recommended tourist cafe accessible via a bitumen road. Views over the city are excellent although...More
