For cafe/restaurant food, the prices at Kulata are good. There are panini, pies and salads which are great for lunch. (note: having your panini go through the sandwich press / toasting is nicer but does delay it a lot) Coffees, milkshakes, drinks, desserts and more....More

Service was so -so but it is a training academy and so no points lost there at all. The food was really good. Probably our favorite place to eat in Yulara

We had a light lunch here when first arriving and also another luch after a morning sunrise excersion. Good value cheap meals. Sit down or take away meals available. Seating area probably needs some updating but chicken rolls we had were good.

Very busy little cafe, best for breakfast or lunch with good food service that benefits the local indigenous population through training.

A great place to have eat and very popular. Reasonably priced, good service and nice to think that you are helping the locals to learn a trade too. A brilliant initiative.

Kulata is a hospitality training cafe. It offers a reasonable range of food options, decent prices and great service. The trainees work really hard to make sure you have an enjoyable experience in their cafe. Great casual dining option in the Town Square.

This is an ideal place for a tasty light lunch or meal, with excellent iced coffees, milkshakes etc. The staff and trainees all seemed happy and competent (congratulations to all concerned),and location was very convenient. Good vibe all round! Highly recommended.

My son and i stopped in for lunch after arriving on the plane. we had the salmon rolls. There were great but could have done with a bit more flavour (mayo, mustard). The prices are great and service was good

Popped in for porridge. Delicious and served with fruit and bush honey. Lovely toasted sourdough and coffee. Just what we needed, sitting outside in the shade, serenaded by birds and with a sight of our first lizard. A definite plus.
