“Interesting surroundings, great food, good value and friendly staff”

The Wyong Milk Factory
Reviewed 4 April 2018

We've been here a few times now and will be back as long as the food, service and decor keep on delivering great value. The surrounds are interesting too, very unusual.

Part of the old Milk Factory complex this is a great family venue. Two kitchens providing excellent food, one for Aussie pub food the other Thai and you can order from both. Meals are excellent in taste and quantity and not too heavy on the purse, I have not been disappointed yet.

Plenty of room plus indoor and outdoor play areas for the kids and if you are there in the day, check out the riverside facilities.

The live music has always been okay, but with kids we didn't have time to sit back and listen at leisure.

We have used the courtesy bus and loved it, really convenient and no fuss.

The staff are a real feature of the place, happy and friendly they are a great advertisement for their employer.

Unfortunately its popularity is spreading so maybe you shouldn't go there after all otherwise I mightn't get a booking next time!

Sign on the door says they are open until 4pm. Please don't bother going after 3pm.

We stopped by just after 3 on two recent occasions. Drinks and cakes only (that's fine).
Cakes all wrapped up and unable to see what was available, cabinet light was turned off on me while I was looking to see what was available on our 2nd trip, no one keen to tell us what was available - so just guessed. We can have cold banana bread (told everything is turned off, you can have it cold), all on paper plates/cups/disposable cutlery, made to feel like we were holding them up - it was all a hassle. Milkshakes OK, cakes ordinary and expensive.

Essentially it looks like they are packing & cleaning up from 3 pm, emptying bin bags through the cafe while you are trying to eat, glaring at, or sour-facing customers, using disposable plates, and many goodbyes to give you the hint to go and not stay - even before 3:20 pm.

(NB: There is a lovely English? lady working there who goes above and beyond)

They are better off closing earlier and then cleaning up. Other people were also unimpressed.

We used to regularly go to the cafe with family and friends, and enjoyed the meals and milkshakes. I really had forgotten why we stopped going - until I was reminded by our last 2 experiences during the past 2 weeks.

After 3pm go instead to Legends or one of the numerous new cafes in Wyong.

Took relatives visiting from overseas and it was surprisingly quite good. The cafe was nice with good coffee and cakes. The cheese factory and shop is very small but we had tastings of lots of there cheeses which were really nice and ended up buying some cheddars and blue cheese. Then went to the chocolate shop in tge complex and that was much bigger and very impressive with a large range of chocolates they make there. Ended up buying quite a lof of chocolate from them . I could see a gift shop was also in the complex but it was closed when we visited. Would recommend it for visitors to the area as is something to do.

Very good service and nice food. The price isv a little expensive. We ordered a steak sandwich, chicken on toasted Turkish bread and a Pulled Pork roll with chips. Turkish was served with no chips. Drinks two coffees and a berry smoothie. All told this cost just over $71.00. All meals very nice but the pork had tough pieces like it had been microwaved. Enjoyable but rather pricy.

Lovely, small cafe with friendly staff. Gated play area next to the cafe. The cafe was small and difficult to take a pram in and the coffee was not too bad. Had the corn fritter dumplings which I thought were going to be new and inventive but they were smaller versions of corn fritters. Not the best I have tasted, were a bit oily but overall not terrible. Good place to take kids but not babies/infants as not enough room.
