The Lotus Eaters Cafe

The Lotus Eaters Cafe

The Lotus Eaters Cafe


Evolving from its surrounds Lotus Eaters has become a busy and bountiful nook on the main drag of Mary Street Cygnet. This small cornucopic café is fuelled by a team of great women and driven by the abundance of beautiful produce that encompasses the country town of Cygnet.

We make almost everything ourselves, sourcing the best local and seasonal produce we can find - always using free range meats, eggs and locally grown veggies and herbs. Everything we make is made in our small café fresh for that day - we sometimes run out of things, so it is always good to book and get in early - especially for brekki.


Open 9am-4pm, Friday to Monday
Breakfast 9am -10am | Lunch 12:15 - 3pm | BYO
