Burrinja are delighted to confirm a new partnership with Sandra and her team from Kallista Tea Rooms who have taken on the operations of the Café and catering at the Cultural Centre.

Sandra’s team have brought a new chef and an exciting, accessible menu that offers something for everyone, including fresh, organic, vegetarian and vegan, as well as fabulous pastries! Check out the new menu here

Open early for Breakfasts, with great coffee and a tempting breakfast menu that extends late into the day, Café Burrinja is a must-visit in the mornings. 

And for later in the day a whole new wine list with a focus on supporting great local wineries makes Café Burrinja an excellent place for that longer lunch or afternoon wind-down. Drinks menu here.

The Café opens itself up to the gardens and parkland, with table service to the fully licensed outside areas making it the perfect place to soak up some sun while enjoying a drink or meal.
