About The Shaggy Cow

A stint along the Hume Highway through New South Wales calls for sustenance and a comforting place to revive from a long day’s drive, so best to join locals at The Shaggy Cow in Mittagong for a coffee and a tasty bite to eat. Featuring large portraits of adorably shaggy cows, this venue radiates a charming vibe for visitors to unwind, offering up cushioned comfort to weary travellers in the form of a plush lounge running one length of this trendy restaurant, while rich timber panelling gives a rustic touch. The menu is Modern Australian, each dish comes plated with care and an artistic flair, so that once presented at the table, diners appreciate handiwork before delving into the likes of honey caramel pork belly with shell scallops, nectarines, macadamia nuts, bitter greens and quinoa.

The Shaggy Cow
I practically live there! This is by far the best Cafe/ coffee shop around. Service is always great and welcoming. I've never had a meal there I haven't enjoyed and I'm a fairly fussy eater! Not into seafood, yet any I've had here I've enjoyed! Morning coffee and scones or muffins are the best! The staff treat you like family. Thanks so much for coming to Mittagong where we have a lot of good coffee shops, great restaurants but Shaggy is my favourite!


Faultless food and service!
Busy venue but didn't miss a beat. Promptly found us a table out of the cold, quick to take our order all the while pleasant under pressure. Field mushrooms with haloumi & guacamole on sourdough was a taste sensation as were the Eggs Benny; the only minor cristisicm being a slice of toast to mop up the gooey egg. Highly recommended.



One of the best in the Highlands. We're very lucky to have this restaurant/ coffee shop right in our Main Street. Great selection of courses for lunch or if you are just popping in for a coffee. Staff very attentive and friendly and know you 'by name' if you are a regular.
