About Bill & James

It’s like visiting a good friend. Or two good friends, really. Bill & James is a cosy little cafe on Balgownie Road whose coffee, cakes and meals are as good as just about any cafe you’ll find in Wollongong. The decor and design is sleek and modern, don’t get us wrong, but the atmosphere is homely and welcoming, often feeling like you’ve just walked into a friend’s kitchen. If your friends make food like Bill & James, though, then hold onto them – in addition to their gorgeous homemade cakes (the ‘Cindy Cake’ is a particular favourite, an indulgent package of mixed berry, almond meal, white chocolate and cream cheese) and top quality coffee, this gem of a cafe in Balgownie also offer succulent beef brisket, a range of freshly baked quiches, light bites and even fine evening dining on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Everything was great, service, mood, offering meals, drinks and I really wish I could rate this higher as I really like this place and to be honest I probably should had told the waitress but I didn't feel comfortable doing this but my beef cheek with the gravy was lukewarm warm, this spoilt my meal...

Great place for a family breakfast, child friendly, good coffee and the Little Brother is the perfect size! Staff are helpful and friendly. Book ahead if you need a table.

We had a lovely breakfast - very attentive staff, nice variety of food options and one of the best coffees i'd had in a long time.
