The Wattle Café at Blackheath is one of our favourite “go to” places in the Mountains. An easy, picturesque drive, great parking, glorious in any season, place to have a meal. This quaint little café has become extremely popular as the meals are fresh, healthy, and nourishing. Alstair and his friendly team are more than happy to serve you with your chosen delights.
In winter, the fire is going, and the soup is hot, delicious, and served with thick cut sourdough bread. The pot pies are amazing and sooo tasty, and the menu changes regularly with a specials board announcing the daily specials. It is hard to choose once you have been there though as it is all good, tasty and morish. The salads are just as good and the coffee is wonderful, although a hot chocolate will never go astray for a yummy warm-up. You could also try their sweet delights although we have never got to sample those yet.
The cafe is located on the Great Western Highway, just past the traffic lights opposite the train line / station and is reasonably priced for the generous servings they provide. After you partake in the café you can then walk it off with a stroll around the small township of Blackheath and a peruse through the antiques and collectables store in the old Victory Theatre which is well worth a look – it will take you back to the olden days.
Then if you have not taken too long, you can dash back to the wattle café for another coffee before you journey home.
