Long-renowned for not only its incredible local wine and produce, Orange NSW’s food scene is on a meteoric trajectory. The quality of dining to be found in the region is not just impressive for a country town, but anywhere.

 Capitalising on its location within ‘Australia’s Food Basket’, menus all over town brim with local seasonal produce. Modern interpretations of rustic dishes can be found from popular hatted stalwarts that put Orange on the map, to up and-coming cafes with Nordic-styled interiors. Visitors will find something to suit their palate whether they are looking for chic shared plates in a small-bar atmosphere or beautiful, honest country cooking in a classic heritage homestead. Quality and style are on the menu in just about any Orange restaurant.

Head out to some of the fine dining establishments housed in Orange wineries, and gaze upon grapevine-lined valleys as you dine in rustic ambience. Expect to find top chefs utilising on site kitchen gardens and orchards of rare heirloom fruit - there is an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients.

Back in town though, it’s not all contemporary country fare. A new generation of restaurants has swept Orange, including upmarket Korean BBQ in a stylish fit out, wildly popular southern American barbecue, and a hip new Mexican taqueria with an inventive selection of tacos, tequila and craft cervezas.

Don’t miss some of Orange’s exceptional bakeries, serving up artisan breads, pastries and a near-iconic lemon meringue tart. And good coffee is the norm, pull up a seat at any number of stylish cafes and savour your perfectly-made piccolo as you soak up the country atmosphere.
