Loved our breakfast of Elle's dish. The plate was warm, very important, and the coffee just the right temperature. Well worth the drive from Bundanoon.

Excellent experience.
I found the gazpacho a little bland.
There was a stuff up with my bread order - I meant it to accompany the gazpacho but it arrived after I had finished.
Otherwise it was all excellent and we have already encouraged others to go.

Not what it once was. Haphazard service together with a more limited menu and poor knowledge of ingredients resulted in an average experience. The garden bowl was fairly uninspiring. We’ve decided to give the General Store a miss for the foreseeable future.

Fantastic food! I don't normally eat salad but was tempted by the summer salad and was not disappointed! Incredibly tasty, a riot of flavours and very generous with all the good bits. My partner had the house cured salmon which could be described the same way.
The menu is a little limited but most folks should be able to find something to their taste on it. All the food coming out looked fantastic with great attention to detail in the presentation.
A little more warmth in the initial greeting would help overcome all the covid regulation unpleasantness but overall the floor staff were great.
Do yourself a favor and grab something out of the display case as you settle the bill, my partner insisted on a piece of slice for later and I am so glad she did, wow I'm glad we only could have half each this thing was amazing nuts, caramel, bliss!!
Thoroughly recommended!!!

What a great place for a leisurely lunch (or late breakfast). The food we chose was excellent, tasty and good portions, however we did find the menu rather limited for a lunch. The breakfast menu was much more expansive. Nonetheless we totally enjoyed ourselves and would be happy to return.

Had a beautiful spot in the sun on the front porch to share breakfast with my fiancé. From the moment we arrived the staff were genuine (particularly the young lady who cleaned the table as we waited, it was her first day and she had a lovely welcoming smile and approachability - well done, sweetheart!). Loved our meal, particularly loved the table ordering and payment process, a definite way of the future I think....Have always loved this spot, and we will be back! Thanks, Team!

The location is lovely, the interior is very attractive, the food and the young service staff are excellent. The welcome is a bit on the frosty, stanoverish, side even bearing in mind the COVID restrictions. A less austere first impression would make the experience a lot more enjoyable.

lovely place to escape the rush of the city. However the food was way overpriced. $28 for an average hamburger is not good value

From the moment we entered the cafe we were concerned,as the smell from used oil penetrated the whole atmosphere. We requested a lunch menu.The mains consisting of 3 items only, a salad, a hamburger and fish-which was unavailable. As we were trying to celebrate a birthday-there seemed little cause for celebration . The service was unprofessional and disappointing. Because this cafe was introduced to us by Open Table we assumed that there would be certain standards adhered to,which they most definitely were not.

We enjoyed our time at Burrawang General Store. The young lady serving us really made us comfortable. The food was really different and tasty. We had brunch there and ate our meal in the store itself, which had all sorts of curiosities in the shelves around us. After the meal we went out into the garden and all the flowering trees such as the cherry, camelias and plum were in bloom. We decided that we would definately come back and dine in the garden. BGS is a great place to dine and the whole town is worth walking around after a meal, especially in springtime.

This used to be one of my favourite brunch places but I did not have the same experience on Sunday.
Unfortunately there was zero customer service & atmosphere.
This prices have increased and the non contact menu and ordering system requires zero customer service.
On walking in for our booked table 3 waitresses looked at us and turned the other way.
We requested some contact and was informed by the manager they were very busy, this cafe is usually at double the capacity and copes beautifully.
A smile and little customer service goes a long way.
Covid restrictions does not mean lack of service.,

Food was great but I thought the sides like avocado for $6 was a bit expensive. Also you are ask to stand at the door to be seated but you are left there looking awkward as the staff walks pass you. They need to at least acknowledge you & sat “someone will be with you shortly”

A lovely spot for breakfast. Plenty of space, not too busy for a Saturday morning. Helpful staff. Limited choice on breakfast menu and new digital ordering system for Covid19 was a good idea, but a bit of a hassle. Perhaps instructions written on the wall, as we were unsure about the process. Also, told by a staff member we could pay direct to the cafe, but later were told we had to pay using the digital app, which incurred a service fee. Hopefully this is a temporary measure as it changed the dining experience and made it less personal.

A lovely spot and we will return.

The room is freezing cold. The food comes on freezing cold plates and therefore goes cold immediately. The new phone tap ordering system is a nightmare and is so unfriendly. As locals we’ve persisted but it hasn’t improved and so we’ve decided not to go back. Such a shame, as the food is great.

The best steak sandwich ever! So tender it melted in my mouth and the sweet potato chips were delicious. Great service too!
