The Blue Hour Café  is a small, cozy and intimate cafe, located along the main street of Katoomba, Blue Mountains a 5-7 walking distance from The Carrington Hotel where we stayed.

We were looking around Katoomba for dinner at 6pm on a Sunday evening after a long over night flight from Singapore to Sydney and felt a growing desperation upon realizing that most shops and restaurants in the area had closed for the day.  Fortunately, Blue Hour Café was one of those handful of cafes that were still open for business.

Shops along Katoomba Street.

We were attracted by the strong aroma of coffee as we walked along Katoomba Street that we went into this cafe.

Blue Hour Café has a lovely décor and ambience that is so relaxing that I could stay here and people-watch!  Based on their interactions with the staff, some customers look as if they were regulars!

Prices at the Blue Hour Café are average in terms of what you can get in Katoomba.  A home-made Fettuccine costs AUD $18 while a cabonara costs AUD $15.

Cozy atmosphere in the Blue Hour Cafe.

BLT with spicy pancetta bacon, tomatoes and avocado (AUD $15) for Tommy. It’s certainly filling but the vegetable do taste a bit raw for our liking.

Pasta with Tomato and Bacon (AUD $7). A kids’ meal for me, because the carbonara is sold out! Nevertheless, it is still yummy.

The best coffee I had in the Blue Mountains.  If there’s any regrets, it’s that we did not have the time to come back often enough.  We’ve seen people buying take-aways as well.


Great coffee, great atmosphere, service and food.  We will definitely come back here again when we visit Blue Mountains next time!
