Set against the leafy surrounds of Lane Cove National Park and overlooking Lane Cove River, Lane Cove National Park Cafe is the ideal place to stop and refuel when exploring the park.

The cafe has a low-key vibe and offers a variety of tasty snacks, light meals and refreshments. Whether you're a nature enthusiast dropping in for a quick bite or enjoying a family day out, Lane Cove National Park Cafe has something for everyone.

The covered playground is sure to keep the kids entertained for hours. Watch them play while you sip on a coffee and if the weather is less than perfect, take shelter in the peaceful alfresco dining area.

If you're planning a picnic but don't feel like self-catering, grab a coffee and one of the cafe's picnic platters. Once you've polished off your lunch you can hit the nearby Riverside walking track or take on a section of the multi-day Great North walk.

Conveniently located footsteps from the tranquil Lane Cove River, it's the perfect stopover before launching a boat or kayak from The Boatshed.
