Out with the old, and in with the new! Our new cafe is modern, stylish and open for business.

Our visitors no longer have to eat at our old, shabby cafe. Now, in its place is a brand new Caves Cafe.  Over 5 months, the old cafe was completely stripped out and replaced by a new, modern, stylish cafe.  Although we have not yet had our bells and whistles grand opening, the new cafe is definitely open for business.
 
It is ever so civilised now, marking an end to sweltering in summer and freezing in winter.  The Caves Cafe is air conditioned, with a glamourous, see-through gas fireplace.  To improve customer flow, motion-sensors control door, and customers serve themselves from sparkling display cabinets. The new café seats over 160, indoors and out.  The wide verandah features comfortable blue and white all-weather furniture and even outdoor heating for those bracing Winter days in the Blue Mountains.
 
As you know, Jenolan Caves House is heritage listed, so all historic features have been preserved.  The external walls are still the original limestone blocks that were mined on site.  All original windows, doors, ceilings, staircases and panelling have been preserved. 
 
The project also transformed the original Entrance Hall, built in 1897.  So, although the exterior has not changed since Queen Victoria, the gloomy old Entrance Hall is now bright and inviting, and includes an elegant café bar, to cater for lovers of wine, beer and barista coffee. Two old, cold, disused offices, off the old Entrance Hall, now contain beautiful new toilets, including a very spacious combined disabled toilet and parent’s room. 
 
The Caves Cafe is open daily, from 9am to 4pm, for light lunch, snacks and drinks.  See you there!
