We had coffee and scones and jam and cream but all the meals that came out of the kitchen looked great. It is most probably the best place to eat when heading to Springbrook to either camp, stay or bush walk.

We actually stayed overnight in this very cute cottage /Cafe. Accommodation was spotless and heaters were provided. Everything you would need for a couples getaway is here. Bathroom has heat lamps thank goodness as it was quite chilly. The staff are a credit to Anastasia....More

Located to the right of the entrance to the Purling Brook Falls with friendly and welcoming staff it is the ideal place for a coffee or fresh pot of tea, their pepper streak pies and toasties are both recommended.

My husband and I went into this café for lunch before seeing the falls. Its a great little café with very friendly staff. We had the pepper steak pie and it was delicious! I would recommend this place for the food, friendly staff, and conversation.

We had lunch on our way to see the wonderful views at Springbrook. I had the scones, my husband had the Byron Bay pie and our friends had the soup. The food was good and the coffee great.

We absolutely LOVE Dancing Waters. I'm only sorry I didn't catch the name of the lovely lady working in the afternoon of Friday 9th June because I would mention her here. My boyfriend and parents came in for a late lunch, arriving in a downpour...More

Hi I'm just a reviewer, not the owner. But pretty sure they weren't open in the evenings.
