About Us

Hi there! Welcome to our Cafe! 


We're Pete and Jess & we're passionate about good food and coffee and bring you the best of both.  Our menu, designed by Pete is simple, it's food that is not over worked nor over designed and served to you with love and a smile.   


All our dishes are freshly prepared using local quality seasonal produce.  We make our own chutneys, mayo & sauces in house and use only the best available meat & seafood.  We love to bake, and have a fridge stocked full of fresh cakes & healthy (& some not so healthy) sweet treats.


Cafe Macquarie is situated in the heart of Belmont on the shores of Lake Macquarie, just 20 minutes south of Newcastle.   You'll find us on the corner at the lights opposite 'Coles', surrounded by incredible street art murals.  


Our space is perfect for small social gatherings and private celebrations for up to 30 guests.  We can tailor a menu to suit your requirements, so give us a call to chat about what we can offer for your next function.

In 2015 former Cafe Macquarie owner Ana Benson initiated the Block by Block Street Art Event, a community project to combat the ongoing battle against unsightly graffiti and vandalism in our town.  


Artists from the local area, Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne & New Zealand took part in the project free of charge and using only aerosol paint, showcased their amazing talents on our walls and the buildings in the Belmont business district.
