Springwood Pizza    
Cheap, fast and tasty. Open fairly late on weekends.
(02) 4751 5187 – 240 Macquarie Road

Oriental Hotel (The Ori) – Springwood    
Food is a little on the pricey side, but they have beer. Not the most relaxed pub in the mountains.
(02) 4751 7788 – 112 Macquarie Road

The Lapstone Hotel (The Lapo) – Blaxland     
Recently renovated, can be pricey but good food. Never a comment about dress, except for when a 9-year-old in stinky thermals with crusty blood on his head from a leech attack turned up. And I’ve been told it has the cutest bar staff in the mountains.
(02) 4739 1266 – 15 Great Western Highway

Monte Pizzeria – Blaxland    
Opposite the Lapo, and still serving after the bistro closes, reasonable food at a reasonable price. Avoid the garlic bread.
(02) 4739 6969 – 15 Great Western Highway

Subway – Blaxland    
Slightly better option than the McDonalds on the other side of the road, and next to an IGA if you need supplies.

Glenbrook Takeaway    
Good fish and chips.
(02) 4739 1837 – 31 Ross Street

Jazz Apple Cafe – Glenbrook    
Relaxed chilled out atmosphere. Great food with friendly service. Often has live music and poetry nights.
(02) 4739 1364 – 6 Ross Street

Bakehouse on Wentworth – Glenbrook    
Excellent pies and good coffee. Open early on weekends and public holidays. The beef and guinness pies come highly recommended!
(02) 4739 2288 – 3 / 31 Park Street

  1. Great Stuff, pretty accurate. The Blue Tounge Lizard Cafe has been sold and is now called the Jazz Apple Cafe. Still good. Mountain Blue Cafe next to the Real Estate Agent worth a mention too.

    • Ken, working on the next big update now. What have your experiences been like at Mountain Blue Cafe? I know they have another story on the GWH at Springwood too. I’ll definitely include them if someone has been there and can vouch for them.

  2. I do have to heavily disagree with The Lapstone Hotel “Lapo”. Been there a couple days ago. The food is overprised and bad. I ordered a $14 burger and when it came it looked pretty sorry for itself and the serve of fries was quite small. To make it worse the taste was on the lower end of the spectrum for both, burger and fries.

    I ended up going next door for seconds at “Professors Charcoal Chicken”. I got a yummy burger with the lot for less than half the price. When my mates saw me with that one everyone agreed that they rather had that one than their respective Lapo dishes.

    So if ever again anyone drags me into the Lapo, I’ll be getting my food from next doors.
