Great place to eat. Tables under the shady trees offer a great outdoor experience. The range of food is amazing and the coffee was hot and delicious. The food arrived at the table quickly and was delicious

Great little spot near the thermal hot springs. The area around the springs was being renovated so will be nicer soon. Outdoor seating only. We had birds on the table and chairs, so friendly. Good choice of foods and drinks. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff.

We are a pop up cafe at the Katherine Hot Springs serving up delicious coffee, food and cold drinks for breakfast and lunch open during the Top End dry season. We offer alfresco style dining in a beautiful nature based location. Our coffee is roasted in house and is beautifully fresh. We have a street food special daily from 11am. We also hire bikes from our cafe to explore the great trails of Katherine.
