Yaye’s Cafe

Restaurant and Cafe

Would you like some Art with your coffee?

Located in the former Connellan Airways mess house between the Araluen Arts Centre and Central Craft, Yaye’s Café provides exceptional coffee, breakfast, lunch and light refreshments to locals and visitors to the Araluen Cultural Precinct.

A synthesis of native Australia and operators Warkabout Consultancy, Executive Chef Athol Wark’s menu showcases local produce and native Australian wild foods and demonstrates a respect for quality ingredients that highlight Central Australia.

In local Arrernte language, Yaye’s (pron: yar-yars) means sisters and the name relates to the Two Women Dreaming story that runs through the land on which the Araluen Cultural Precinct is situated. The significant landmarks of this dreaming story can be found immediately behind Yaye’s Café, Big Sister Hill, and located in the adjacent Frank McEllister Park, Little Sister Hill.
