The General Cafe Kangaroo Valley is a modern and relaxed cafe/restaurant in the village of Kangaroo Valley.
We produce honest and nutritious food and beverages with slight quirks. It’s the new black… We like to keep it hand made, local, fresh and sustainable.
We have a tiny shop (check out Handcrafted @ The General) that sells what we love to eat, make and dig out of our and our neighbours’ gardens.
We have outside seating on our verandas, love dogs and love people. Come and visit us.
The General Vibe
Food offerings change on a regular basis in tune with the best produce available – avocado, tomato, fresh cheese and rye, a local favourite, free range scrambled eggs with a delicious array of sides, Chinese Bolognese, raw zucchini noodle and Ploughman’s Lunch are standard offerings.
Tony’s a chef in tune with natural taste and textures, his experience stretches from The Bayswater Brasserie, to ashram cooking and to his own Two Hatted award winning Lochiel House restaurant he owned with Mrs Bread for 11 years. Tony also has a passion for kombucha and has started fermenting and bottling his own delicious range which is available in the Cafe and from our little shop.

Is The General a dog friendly cafe?
Yes, we love dogs!
Bring your dog along whilst you enjoy something delicious to eat or drink – a bowl of water for your 4 legged friend is never far away.
Sit with your dog out the front and absorb the village atmosphere, or out the back on our leafy veranda. We also have a secure dog chain out the front for your use.
Do you have vegetarian, gluten and dairy free options?
Yes, we love food and providing tasty options for different dietary needs with our Menu options and specials. Our chef Tony happily caters for special requirements wherever possible.
If you have particularly strict requirements we suggest you call us before you visit on 4465 1660 so we can do our best to serve you something you’ll love.
Can we sit outdoors?
Yes, we have two lovely options for outdoor dining.
You can sit out the front and absorb Kangaroo Valley village life or head out the back to our pretty and peaceful vine woven veranda.
And cause we’re a people and dog friendly cafe, you’re very welcome to bring your dog along whilst enjoying either of these outdoor spaces.
