Lodge 241 Gallery Cafe
This three-storey weatherboard lodge (c. 1912) is an iconic landmark in Bellingen, equally renowned for its food, coffee and history. Absolutely everything is made on-site (from pastry to bread to jams), and the blackboard-style lunch menu is constantly refreshed with tasty dishes like crispy leek risotto cake with pan-seared mushroom ratatouille and garlic aioli. Dine inside, or on the terrace or balcony at this pretty riverside cafe.
117–212 Hyde St; (02) 6655 2470; open Wed–Sun for breakfast, lunch and dinner
