We were looking forward to a good coffee and cake and were referred to the Church Cafe. Lady was lovely, setting beautiful, and service was good. The coffee however tasted quite strange and not nice at all, and whilst the scone, jam and cream were delicious, the fact that the scone fell apart in our hands made it difficult to eat. We feel they need to revisit whatever coffee it is they are serving. The strength was fine, made really well....just the taste was “odd” almost a perfumed taste. It may have been the milk.

We went for a lovely fish meal - this old building has been done up very tastefully. The chandelier in the alcove is just gorgeous. The building has been enhanced by a huge deck outside with shade from a nearby tree. The facilities have disabled parking (behind the Church cafe building and very nice disabled toilets. BUT food is what we are interested in .. loved the meal - fresh fish, salad and smashed chat potatoes. Not a huge menu but always changing with availability. Very nice venue and open breakfast, lunch and dinner. Generally closed Mondays.

We were recommended to see this by another tourism operator in Mitta Mitta, and how right they were!
The small town of Eskdale is a little gem, sitting in beautiful countryside. The cafe only opened early in 2018 and is a "Grand Designs" style conversion of an old church. The exterior colour scheme is striking and sympathetic to the original construction. The interior is stunning; - light, high ceilings, gold leaf and modern furnishings that complement and enhance the traditional design and structure.
The staff are charming and obviously dedicated and enthusiastic. There was a delicious selection of teas and snacks, all at reasonable prices.
The owners are trying very hard to provide a good and memorable experience for customers and I think they will do very well. I had a breakfast that was very attractively presented, but rather slow to arrive and a little bland for my taste. The owners welcomed my comments and I'm sure will continue to refine their product.
I would encourage anyone passing anywhere near this enterprise to pop-in and try it, you'll love it.
