We stumbled across Kates Berry Farm and are thrilled we did. We enjoyed lovely fresh and homemade cakes for morning tea, as well as a very tasty cuppa. Staff friendly. Amenities clean. Well sign posted to help get you there.

We were unsure about coming here as we had seen a couple of poor reviews on TripAdvisor. Firstly the café looked very cosy and the staff were friendly. The menu looked good so we changed our mind about eating out that night. Had the special...More

A must every time we go to the East Coast. Almost rustic setup but clean with berry pies to die for. Well worth buying a family sized pie to eat the next day or to give to friends. Nice views of the coast.

Sadly we had stopped picking berries when you called in. The colder nights came early this year affecting the sweetness and yield. We lost our raspberries last year due to drought and it will take time for the new plants to produce any quantity. Our...More

As one of the handful of Providores along this stretch of road on the East Coast, there was a lot left to be desired. Prices for items were steep and general layout of shop/café was tight.

Fantastic place to eat. Staff friendly, helpful and quick. Food amazing - the chicken and vege chowder was sensational, milkshakes devine and the humbleberry pie and ice cream to die for. Thoroughly recommend this place.

The only berries available that were fresh were the strawberries as we visited in late March. Reasonably nice inside but what turned me off was the way the lady behind the counter spoke about some of the other customers who were visitors from another country....More

Hi, the little strawberry field doesn't seem big enough to service all the products in the shop. Is there a larger nereby field or do you source produce elsewhere to supplement?
