We've been here on previous visits to Mudgee and enjoyed the place - and this time was no different. Coffee was great as was the breakfast - very nice indeed!

OK to be fair, Outside the Square Cafe had lovely food. It was fresh, light and well presented. It was even well priced. However I dont think in 20 years I have ever come across a waitress so uninterested in what she did. She may have had unrelated work issues...I dont know, but that's not my concern. Its Sunday morning,... More

We were visiting Mudgee for a girls week away and read on Trip Advisor that Outaide the Square Cafe rated as the No.1 Cafe so we thought we'd try it out. On arrival we were greeted by a young girl that didn't know how to smile or make a welcoming impression. Regardless of what the food was like, we were... More

The staff here are very friendly and the coffee is great! We didn't try the food, but what we saw other patrons eating looked nice.

We enjoyed our coffee break at this little cafe just off the main street. Coffee was brought to us individually, so the crema was still there, a perfect coffee! The carrot cake we shared was also delicious. We will be back next time we are in town.

This cafe has a great menu covering all tastes, service is friendly and prompt. We breakfasted here twice in our three day visit to Mudgee and each time it was very busy. The breads, fruit toast and baking were all delicious, extra flavoursome. The fruit toast serving was two very thickly sliced pieces with lots of fruit and apricots, yum.... More

Tried the Campos around the corner but these people have nailed the coffee scene in Mudgee. Good quick service and they make coffee the way you request it.

Call into this cafe because of its vegan and vegetarian options. Won't bother again. Menus were just slid on the table and not a 'hello how are you'. Very very unwelcoming. Ordered and one was unavailable because baguette are 'pre made'. Had to ask for water when others were just given it. Ordered pot of tea for two one ordinary... More
