The best of the Blue Mountains: Brunch
Brunch is the best of both worlds. You can happily sleep in past breakfast time but still sneak in some bacon before lunch. The Blue Mountains is buzzing with a unique foodie culture that continues to change and grow to satisfy the taste buds of locals and visitors alike.
Whether you’re en route to your mountains destination or looking for the best local fave, we’ve got you covered with our top five brunch places.
Located at the foot of the mountains, Kickaboom is a favourite among the Glenbrook coffee lovers. The coffee is perfection and so is the menu; and a big plus is that it caters to everyone. Gluten free? Try the potato waffles. Vegan? The vegan toastie will appease your palate. However, we can’t go past the fried chicken waffles, they always hit the spot!
Situated adjacent the historic Norman Lindsay homestead this family owned business offers a menu packed with high quality fare with a homemade twist.
If you’re after something light opt for the famous scones served with house jam and lashings of fresh cream. For something unique, try the Lindsay’s bush breakfast featuring lemon myrtle hash and kangaroo sausage.
After brunch explore the Norman Lindsay Gallery, gardens and bush trails to top off a relaxing day out.
Grab a table in the sunny courtyard and watch the world go by at this lovely heritage-listed post office turned café. This little outfit does the classic so well that you’ll find the Scenic World team on the weekends devouring smashed avocado with piles of halloumi or eggs benedict with mouth-watering house cured salmon. Open seven days a week.
This lesser known gem offers many healthy options and all of the classics you’d expect from an Aussie café. Looking for something sweet to wash down your brunch? Try a fresh lemon myrtle doughnut for a unique treat. Located right next to the Three Sisters and Echo Point, Milkbar at the Lookout is the perfect place to fuel up before a big day of bushwalking and adventure!
The location is Instagram worthy and the specialty coffee is so good that the locals want to keep it under wraps. Anonymous has been the Blackheath neighbourhood favourite since it first opened back in 2012. All of the items on the menu are either seasonal, house made or organic. From the hearty breakfast burrito to the divine brioche French toast, you’re bound to be ‘umming’ and ‘ahhhing’ trying to pick off this chock filled menu.
