Poppy's Café is located on the Australian War Memorial grounds.

We are open daily from 9am to 3pm (the kitchen is open from 11am to 2pm). We are currently able to accommodate 40 seated patrons inside the café and take away options are available.

Poppy's Café has range of sandwiches, salads, and mouth watering sweets and cakes for morning and afternoon tea. We have a wide variety of beverages, from fresh coffee to milkshakes, and we are also fully licenced.

The beauty of Poppy’s is its warmth and design simplicity. The café’s design gives full, deserving attention to the Memorial’s serene grounds – just the spot for some quiet reflection. Inside the café, floor to ceiling windows provide a dramatic vista to relax with an espresso and light snack or a glass of wine. Outside on the terrace, is the perfect location to meet for breakfast or reflect on your days activity.

Restroom facilities are available at Poppy’s Café and there is a carpark located underneath.
