In 2018, Blue Mountains Food Services took over the running of Ben Roberts Café in the local Heritage Building at 10 Benang st Lawson. Following the sale of the property, the café was renamed in May 2022, to be known as Ben's Cafe.
At Ben's Café we believe that good food can bring a community together. A nourishing meal, a warm beverage, and an inviting atmosphere are at the heart of so many significant moments in life.
We aim to provide an inclusive space where all members of the community can gather, while young people with disabilities are given opportunities to work and connect.
When you visit Ben's Cafe, you're more than a customer - you are part of a social enterprise that supports our community.
We are run by Blue Mountains Food Services, a local charity, which provides a range of community aged care and disability programs and services to residents of the Blue Mountains.
Blue Mountains Food Services is also the local Meals on Wheels provider and Ben's Cafe provides a range of fresh cafe items to their Meals on Wheels clients.
We thank you for your support of Ben's Cafe and the NDIS participants who work with us each day.
"Tucked away in a Lawson cafe, a small team of dedicated chefs and support workers are making some big differences in the lives of young people with a disability."
