|Cafe Madeline, Leura|
A trip to Leura is not complete without a stop at one of the many cafes.
Fast food chains are all but non existent in the Blue Mountains. There is one MacDonalds in the lower mountains, no KFC, an occasional Subway and just about nothing else. The idea is to keep more individual eating experiences in the mountains. If you are in Katoomba and in need of your favourite fast food fix then you have to drive to the bordering cities of Penrith or Lithgow a 40-50 km (30 mile) drive.
