Great coffee, great food, great service. Lovely setting in the bush. Although this didn't apply to me, they serve a free drink to breastfeeding mums!

Rare to find such a sunny afternoon mid-winter... and our ride through the magnificent karri forest set the scene for a great lunch at Cafe Boranup. I ordered the Calamari... and my wife relished her Fish Soup with a savoury scone. That latter meal must...More

A lovely setting in the forest with nice food. The fish and chips were really fresh with perfectly cooked chips and a delicious salad. All would be pretty idyllic except that perhaps they fall into the trap of catering to the staff rather than the...More

Thanks for your review. Next time you visit, please just ask the crew to turn the music down to hear the birds outside. It's no problem. Regards Cindy

We sat on the outside deck, well rugged-up, for the pleasure of sitting amongst the tall timber and greenery. The setting is very close-to-nature and peaceful. The building looks good, the staff were friendly, and the coffee was fine. A good wayside stop.

Lunch here was lovely. I had the Thai pumpkin soup and the boys had chicken burgers. Nice to be able to have the dogs sitting under the table with us. Beautiful surroundings.

stopped off here for morning tea after going in the Boranup gallery. A quirky and quaint little place with very friendly staff. Lovely scones with cream and jam. Great place to stop

Yummy scones at the Boranup Cafe this morning. The savoury ones were scrumptios and the jam n cream ones were great too. They were so big. Definitely worth a visit. Loved the jarrah gallery. Lovely spot with plenty of bird life.

No problems! Red, our cafe hound, loves a visitor or three, although he's currently having a few days off work, mostly chilling out at the beach with other friends!

A cute little cafe in the forest, with the stunning Boranup Gallery next door. Cafe Boranup is 4kms South of Lake Cave on Caves Road Forest Grove, keep an eye out or our sign. Please go to our website for a map and GPS co-ordinates if that helps. We are friendly, do great coffee, make our own cakes and our lunches are hearty, delicious and reasonably priced.
