Cafe Woodworks is a vibrant and welcoming space surrounded by exquisite art and craft. Our freshly prepared meals are generous in size and flavour, and made from locally sourced produce when possible. Our friendly and accommodating staff will greet you with a genuinely warm welcome.
The Venue: The main part of the cafe was first built in 1883 as a residence. One hundred and ten years later, the Bungendore Wood Works architect, Morris Barnes, designed the Gallery around embracing that building. A few years later a cafe began to function in the space. However, it wasn’t until Eric Dangerfield established Cafe Woodworks in 2001 that we had the special place it is. Eric is now General Manager of the Carrington Inn, and has over 25 years experience in the hospitality industry. He brings a practical and hands on approach to food and serving our valued customers. Our relationship with the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery brings a strong creative orientation and feel to the Cafe, both on our walls and in our meals. We work in partnership with the Gallery to improve on the delight our visitors experience in both places.
Cafe Woodworks is a great place to visit no matter the occasion. Whether it is morning tea, lunch or a quick cuppa, we will cater to you. Our vast, seasonal menu offers some of the regions best fresh produce; hand-crafted by our chefs and served by our team of friendly and accommodating wait staff.
The Food: Dinner at Cafe Woodworks is country dining with a sophisticated and modern menu. Enjoy our seasonal menu and quality produce in candle light dinner with one of our great local wines on offer. We are licensed with a great selection of local and interstate wines, beers and ciders that will compliment your meal.
Our dinner menu offers a great range of options to cater for all types of customers. We offer entrees, light meals and main course dishes to satisfy all.
Cafe Woodworks prides itself on a good cup of coffee. Black Mountain Coffee is the current bean we use. The smooth and aromatic bean creates a softer flavour that is not only enjoyed by locals but by tourists and visitors who are just popping in.
Our desserts are made freshly in house or locally. We have scones and muffins baked daily as well as a large variety of cakes and tarts. We also have gluten free and lactose free options available.
Café Woodworks is available to host your next function.
Whether that be a birthday party, holiday party, or any special event, we can look after you.
