Last time we ate here, it was a fabulois French restaurant with a really good owner & chef. But it changed hands last month. Today's lunch was awful. How can you ruin a toasted ham cheese & tomato sandwich? Only the cheese layer was toasted,...More

We chose Palate for breakfast after declining another cafe in Lismore because the breakfast menu was way too hipster for us. So glad we did. The Hash Stack and the Corn Fritters we selected were excellent. The House Kale pesto was subtle enough to flavour...More
