On the Soulside Cafe

Our Story

Welcome to The Soulside Cafe, a beloved establishment nestled within the historic Gearin Hotel. Run by David Griffiths, our cafe has been a cherished destination in Katoomba for the past five years. With a passion for live music, David ensures that our cafe is alive with the sounds of talented performers most days of the week.


Steeped in history, our cafe occupies a space once owned by the renowned Australian actor Jack Thompson. Join us at The Soulside Cafe, where delicious food, warm hospitality, and vibrant entertainment await in the heart of Katoomba.
