The cafe putting Berrima on the food map

Don’t judge Josh’s Cafe by the bright multi-coloured walls and noisy family cafe vibe – as I did. Josh is very serious about his food. Very serious. As an understudy of Serif Kaya’s at the Ottoman I suppose I shouldn’t have under-estimated how damn fine his persian-inspired menu would be.
But this in Berrima? Who would have believed it. A food stop on the highway between Canberra and Sydney doesn’t do it justice. Make Josh’s Cafe your destination. Now.
