We stumbled across Memento quite by accident, eager to get away from the hoards at Leura and Katoomba. We were a cold, wet ravenous group of 6 ready to refuel for an afternoon's bushwalking at Govetts Leap. The food was excellent, my lentil stack deliciously yum, the Russian Caramel cake to die for and the coffee great, unlike the muddy water that passed for coffee at the appalling La Maison boutique hotel Katoomba. Loved the ambience of Memento, the artwork on the walls...it was cosy and the staff friendly with fast, efficient service. And I thought the prices really reasonable given the lovely, fresh organic produce. And I also liked their environmental ethics, the place runs on wind power. So many plusses for me that I'll be hightailing it back here on my next visit to the Blue Mts.
Cons: In the Blue Mts
