Well here we are in the alternative capital of Australia...a town named Nimbin one of the little villages dotted through the hinterland about 30k north of Lismore.
So what would you expect to find in this little cafe right in the main street? To be sure you would expect fresh organic free range eggs...home baked bread....freshly ground coffee... would you not? and for sure that is what we enjoyed.
I ordered scrambled eggs and the others bacon and eggs....and did we enjoy it? yes we did.
And if you come later in the day you won't be disappointed as there is a quite comprehensive menu.
So if you are in the Northern Rivers District of NSW give the coast away for a while and follow the villages trail from Lismore and make it for breakfast or whatever at Cullens.
The Visitor Centre in Lismore will show you the way.
Favorite Dish: Now there is a photo of the coffee....sorry I was to busy eating to photograph the scrambled eggs.
myself and my friends have travelled extensively and can honestly say we were knocked out by the food here, my meal was one of the most delicious fresh and balanced meals i have had anywhere and is one of my fondest memories of my most recent trip to australia. very rarley do you go out with a large group of people for dinner and have every single one of them so happy with there meals. this is not what you expect of pub grub it was fantastic, and the back deck was such a great place to hang out for the balmy evening,
Favorite Dish: barramundi salad, a taste bud sensation not to be missed. but it was all great
This cafe was in the middle of town and had a nice verandah overlooking the valley below, a fantastic view. We had a late lunch and the food was excellent, all locally produced and you could taste the difference.
One hasn't been to Nimbin if they haven't ventured inside the Rainbow Cafe. This establishment has been running on and off for the past 25 years or so and is one of the village's social hubs. Here, while illegal in Australia, the discreet partaking in the smoking of cannabis is tolarated by the management and to an extent, but not strictly speaking, by the police. Nonetheless the dealing of any illicit substance is not tolarated here.
Favorite Dish: One doesn't really come here for the coffee! They do have a varied menue and espresso coffee and cold drinks.
I hardly ever eat pizza, but i was in a hurry to get to the bus, so i graped a piece take away.
It was the best pizza i have had and will be getting 2 next time....
Favorite Dish: Ham and Pineapple Pizza,
Because it is YUMMYYYYY and authentic....
