Lunches and more at The Welcome Home Café

Temporary closure

We apologise that, due to staff shortages, The Welcome Home Café is temporarily closed and our daytime menu is not available. Our dining area is still open for breakfast and dinner so we look forward to welcoming you there. We hope to reopen the café very soon.

Longreach’s heritage café

There’s nowhere more convenient and welcoming than The Welcome Home Café in the heritage heart of Longreach. It’s the perfect spot to soak in the atmosphere of the restored heritage building, meet friends, discuss plans or have some refreshments in between your Outback Pioneers experiences.

Light lunches with country style

Our daytime menu with light lunches, snacks and a daily special has all you need to keep you going. You’ll find simple outback favourites fresh from our kitchen. There’s always a vegetarian option and gluten-free option as well as traditional fare for the carnivore.

Linger over a coffee or tea

Meet, relax and swap stories over a coffee or tea. Our ‘smoko’ menu also includes delicious country baking – scones, biscuits, cakes and slices. Locals and travellers alike drop in to catch up on what’s happening in town and to relax in the laid-back surroundings. There’s free Wi-Fi too!
