Visit Yass Valley - Food & Wine

Yass Valley is Delicious!

A major drawcard for visitors is our food and wine, and what a variety of tables! Country pub bistros and dining rooms, welcoming bars and cosy cafes are all part of the mix.

Cafe culture has really taken off in mainstreet Yass, from book-lined Dolcetto with its genuine home style cooking, to the meeting place of Galutzi’s near Banjo Paterson Park, the huge gobsmacking spread of foodie creations at The Roses Cafe, the quirky art and gifts with serious coffee at Kaffeine 2582 and Thyme to Taste is a gourmet deli with everything picnic plus a comfy lounge and sunny courtyard.

The visitor can choose from award-winning modern cuisine at Gundaroo’s Grazing, to dining amid the fields at Poachers Pantry, experience the relaxed yet sophisticated family style dining experience of Flint at Shaw Vineyard and atmospheric places like the Gundaroo Colonial Inn, Crowe’s Restaurant or the many casual stops at our wineries for creative snacks.

Yazzbar is a cool relaxed wine bar with tapas style snacks showcasing our region’s vintages and talented musicians. Many of our motels feature great dining with restaurants at Swaggers Motor Inn, the Thunderbird Motel and Yass Motel. In our villages unusual places to snack include Bowning’s renowned slab-hut Rollonin or Gundaroo’s former lock-up, now Cork Street Cafe, the town’s cosy Colonial Inn or Murrumbateman offers family dining at the Country Inn Bistro, Village Cafe.

There are seasonal truffle hunts, and countless foodie events celebrating nature’s bounty. Food artisans lovingly create delicious treats such as Robyn Rowe’s hand-crafted chocolates, our smokehouse delights and gourmet wonders.

Fresh food is also big on our menu, with markets supplying travellers direct from the garden.
