Coffee you'll escape for!

Escape to the HMC’s Godfather Espresso Café at Waratah for great coffee and a tasty café menu including cakes, pies and light meals.

Set in a peaceful environment, the café is open to the public and is very popular with Mothers’ groups, community groups, local residents and visitors who enjoy the spacious picnic area, sensory children’s playground and renowned Community Garden. There’s also a quiet space for business meetings.
