Yaye’s Cafe

Would you like some art with your coffee?

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

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.

Yaye’s Café is open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Head to the Yaye’s Café Facebook Page for the latest information.
