Nibble at Nest

Nest is the perfect spot for your leisurely Saturday breakfast in Tumbarumba, open from 8am with cosy indoor tables by the fire in winter, and outdoor seating in gorgeous gardens in warmer months. The historic building was originally a Masonic Lodge and has been converted to a thriving community hub full of culture and conversation.

A licensed cafe restaurant, boutique armchair cinema and beautiful bookstore with gifts and produce, Nest has a unique style. This is the perfect spot for foodie Instagram pictures that will make friends wish they were joining you for breakfast! With an ever-changing menu serving up big breakfasts, lazy lunches, gourmet pizzas, and seasonal dinners, Nest is a destination for locals and travellers.

Nest has a passion for local and seasonal produce, allowing guests to eat and drink from a creative seasonal menu grown in the Nest food garden and nearby orchards, vineyards, mountain streams and paddocks. Halfway between Melbourne & Sydney, it’s also becoming a popular live music venue for folk/blues artists who seek out intimate style gigs in bespoke establishments.

A small Local Produce and Handmade Market is held every third Saturday morning of the month on the front lawn while in the backyard, a food garden is being tended to supply the cafe.

For a really special experience, watch a film in the 25 seat cinema with full dining service and mountain hospitality. There are Matinee screenings daily, Friday and Saturday nights and at other times by arrangement. Group bookings are welcome.

Nest specialises in custom events whether it’s a picnic party, Sugar Pine wedding, pizza banquet or private dinner and movie. You won’t regret seeking out this charming foodie haven.
