Loose yourself in the elegance of this gem. Arch windows, an artisan mural and Double Roasters coffee.

Highlands Merchant

From the pink coffee machine, to the intricately decorated donuts, and the milkshakes that the lil’ ones will coin as ‘the best’.
Big love for these guys located in Moss Vale.

Bernies Diner

Americano diner dreams of deliciousness. This place is all about pastrami/corned beef on rye with a side of fries and extra pickles (homemade). Roll in...cause you will be happily rolling out...

Sutton Forest Inn

'The Sutton' is definitely one of the best country pubs. With a beautiful outdoor area overlooking the highlands, this is a great family option.
