we had breakfast here most mornings and the coffee and hot chocolates were fabulous. A great variety of food on the menu and in the window for choice. The service was excellent and we enjoyed it so much we kept coming back for more!

This is a cafe who train indigenous youth the basics of the hospitality, while all the time (during my stay at least), providing good service and food at an affordable price.

If you are visiting this area for a holiday I would recommend this cafe for a coffee or lunch. The staff are great, friendly and nothing is too hard. Well done

Great to see opportunities in hospitality being provided to indigenous people. This is a small cafe in the centre of things at Yulara.

What a disappointment this place is. It had so much to offer but such a terrible rip off and a “don’t care” attitude. I asked for a bacon, egg and salad roll, which I was asked if I wanted it toasted. I said yes but...asked if they could please take out the tomato and lettuce before they toast it as beside these getting as hot as lava, they go all limp and soggy. So the server calls over Liam, the cook who was doing this and was told by the server, and he confirmed it to us TWICE. So what happened, nothing was removed and the lettuce made it too hot to eat and a soggy, wet mess!! When I complained, it was met with a lack of empathy ‘sorry’…. Besides shocking service and a disgusting roll, the prices are outrageous especially when the service is appalling. Example here is a standard bland meat pie is $10.50, but if you go to the Shell petrol station, about 60 seconds drive away, more ‘gourmet’ pies are available for $3.99!! Seriously give Kulata Cafe a big kiss and just visit Geko’s cafe across from them for better service abs a big selection of food. I wish we did..More

Best coffee in Yulara, staff very friendly especially the lovely Latifah that took the time to explain the history behind the cafe and the training scheme it offers.
