Telescope Rd PARKES NSW 2870

Welcome to The Dish Cafe

The Dish café is an exceptional restaurant located at the base of the world famous Parkes DISH. It features a 2-storey glass outlook allowing for uninterrupted views of the Radio Telescope as it tunes into the universe. Only 20kms north of Parkes and just off the Newell Highway in the NSW Central West, you can experience freshly prepared meals and sample locally made produce in the tranquil surrounds.

The Dish cafe provides a welcome retreat for travellers on the Newell Highway between Dubbo and Parkes or travelling between the central and far west of NSW.

The modern cafe ambiance combined with the mesmorising view of the radiotelescope and the tranquil surrounds provides a completely unique experience. The café is open 7 days from 8.30 to 4.15 every day except Christmas and Boxing Days.

Our all day menu offers a selection of freshly prepared meals including our signature dishes which are baked daily; beef and red wine pies and scones with blackberry jam. There is also a selection of burgers, wraps, melts, soups, salads and thickly cut sandwiches.

Relax with a cappuccino as the Dish scans the skies or perhaps try a glass of wine from the local region in our fully licensed restaurant. Why not join our mailing list for the next restaurant evening?
