Lindsay's Cafe is set in the beautiful grounds of the Norman Lindsay Gallery at Faulconbridge in the Lower Blue Mountains. Since opening in June 2005 we have tried to capture the spirit of one Australia's most celebrated artists, Norman Lindsay. Surrounding and inside the cafe you will find characters from Norman Lindsay's "The Magic Pudding" and on the walls you will find photographs of Norman and his family or quite often, exhibitions from local artists.
The Cafe itself is set in idyllic bush land surroundings. It is attached to Norman's Etching studio which houses his printer, etchings and other historical pieces. The movie "Siren's" based on Norman Lindsay's life which starred renowned actors and actresses like Elle McPherson, Sam Neil, Hugh Grant, Kate Fisher and Portia de Rossi was made on the property. The Norman Lindsay Gallery is steeped in history and one of Australia's most beautiful heritage listed houses. We are striving to add to the great tourism experience by giving visitors and locals alike, a dining experience that will be remembered for years to come.
At Lindsay's Cafe not only have we concentrated on the food but we put as much emphasis on our beverages. Our produce, whenever possible, is sourced fresh and locally. Our Coffee, featuring "Norman's Blend", is roasted by local Roaster Bill Parianos of Bills Bean located at Orange. He strives to deliver a superior local product and delivers the products to our establishment fresh, on demand. Our Baristas are also trained by the 2006 World Latte Art Champion and 2007 & 2010 Australian Barista Champion, Scott Callaghan. Our Apple juice is sourced from Logan Brae Orchard located at Blackheath and our Spring Water is sourced from Lithgow, both in the Blue Mountains region. Our Breads are baked by a Bakery in Blackheath. Our menu changes seasonally and depends on the availability of produce. We also provide a daily specials list to compliment the menu. It is an extensive menu with options for Vegetarians. We have many organic products both in food and beverages. Seasonally, visitors will experience products that are not available anywhere else and are exclusive to the Blue Mountains alone.
