The Niagara Cafe, Gundagai
The Niagara is an undisputed Gundagai institution and, according to the volume of local patronage, perhaps the most important building in town. Opened in 1902 by Greek immigrants, it’s been run by the Loukassis family for the past thirty years and is now a well-worn and well-loved establishment.
Among its out of town guests The Niagara boasts one John Curtain, Australia’s Prime Minister during the Second World War. The story goes he was in the region on a wartime fundraising mission and popped in late one evening for some steak and eggs. This story and other nostalgia from throughout the years are told on the walls in a collage of historical nuggets.
If you’re looking for classic diner food served in an authentic diner environment, this is the place. Burgers with the lot, steak sandwiches, milkshakes in their retro stainless steel cups, chips and gravy – all served hot in snug booths with laminated green tabletops under the glow of The Niagara’s neon sign.
