Driving into Bellingen you can’t miss the grand Old Butter Factory, which has been a significant landmark on the Mid North Coast for more than 110 years.

Steeped in rich local history, the site has had many incarnations. Now into its second century, it still resonates with the sounds of industry and creative enterprise.

The cafe is located in the imposing 1926 cathedral-like main building and offers a range of nourishing house-made dishes using local produce wherever possible. 

The enthusiastic team of qualified chefs create classic cafe fare with a seasonal menu complemented by daily specials.

Open seven days a week from 8am, you can start the day with a delicious breakfast of winter porridge or locally baked macadamia fruit toast. 

For those with a hearty appetite, why not order “The Lot”? A plate crammed with all the breakfast favourites is sure to satisfy.

For a convivial brunch with friends, the sharing plates are ideal. Plus the Wagyu beef burgers are mouthwatering along with the Pulled Pork rolls.

The coffee is consistently good, the food is delicious and always arrives so promptly. AND it’s such a pleasant setting. Five stars from me!
