Impact Café

Our popular Central Coast cafe is located within Impact Plants Nursery and was opened towards the end of 2005; it features al-fresco dining from a menu of contemporary Australian cuisine.

The expansive deck area can seat up to approximately 100 people and is surrounded by dense lush tropical gardens featuring many rare and unusual exotic foliage plants. This ambiance coupled with exceptional coffee and excellent food combine to create a truly unique and memorable dining experience.

All areas of the café and nursery are accessible by wheelchair and strollers.

Socially well adjusted dogs are welcome as long as they are restrained and kept on a leash at all times.

 

Cafe Bookings

Though there is limited seating indoors essentially we offer an Alfresco dining experience, this means that you dine outdoors. Seating is provided at good quality outdoor settings under an umbrella on a timber deck in a fairly protected environment.

In the case of wet weather limited indoor seating can be reserved on a first come basis. Reservations can be made via our contact form or phone during café business hours Wednesday to Sunday on 43691422 ext 1.

Cafe Functions

Due to the limited amount of undercover seating we can only commit to small daytime functions up to approximately 25 people. If you are willing to take a chance on the weather we can cater for larger daytime functions.

For enquiries please contact the cafe or phone 43691422 ext 1 during café business hours Wednesday to Sunday.
