Whether it’s a coffee and a freshly baked treat on the go or a romantic candlelit dinner, these are our pick of the best culinary experiences in Dubbo.
Modern Spanish dining in the ambient surrounds of an historic stone building in the heart of Dubbo, Two Doors Tapas and Wine Bar is a romantic setting with a menu filled with dishes designed to share.
Warm, vibrant Spanish flavours abound and the wine list is excellent.
The Old Bank’s motto is ‘Good food, good music, good times’, which is a pretty succinct description of what you’ll find within.
A restored 19th Century bank with beautiful heritage details like high ornate ceilings, these days the old building thrums with tasty gastro pub cuisine, a lively front bar and plenty of live music.
It’s hard to go past quality Thai food and that served in the restaurant downstairs at Westbury Boutique B&B is especially excellent.
But forget plastic table clothes and cheap and cheerful vibes, dining here is all class with sumptuous candlelight glistening off fine glassware and the heritage building adding an element of old world charm.
Located in the old newspaper building in central Dubbo, the aptly named Press is a refined café bringing ultra cool city coffee culture to a rural setting.
This former cottage has been transformed with modern touches and is always filled with enormous arrangements of fresh flowers. The café fare is creative and modern, not to mention oh so delicious.
Located within the newly renovated Quality Inn Dubbo, the Reflections Restaurant raises the bar on contemporary Australian cuisine. With a chef who has worked all over the world from England to Dubai, the seasonal menu is a smorgasbord of fresh local produce.
If perusing art galleries and museums works up your appetite, you’re in luck; the Outlook Café, in the Western Plains Cultural Centre, is excellent. Serving light meals and great coffee, the café is wonderfully light-filled and airy with a large alfresco area where kids can roam safely.
The Outlook Café is peaceful indeed, in the way that only galleries and museums know how.
Short Street Store
Located in a powder blue weatherboard cottage with a roll-out awning, the Short Street Store exudes the charm of yesteryear. The food, however, is creative and wholesome and the coffee amongst the best in town.
The perfect spot for a leisurely breakfast.
Somewhat of an institution in Dubbo, the Village Bakery is a fourth generation family business run by a mob who seem to have flour, butter and yeast in their veins.
Calling in here for a coffee and a quite bite is an exercise in self control; delicate pastries, yummy cakes and hearty pies will implore you to take them home.
