The Loungeroom cafe in Guildford, Western Australia, is a quirky café with brilliant inexpensive food. Watch how you are walking on the inside polished wooden floors - because it is very easy to slip and landing in the lap of other patrons is not a good look. There is seating inside and alfresco with shaded and screened areas on the... More

Visited here after a long cycle for coffee and cake. The service was friendly and the coffee good. The cake, a black cherry ball from the display counter inside, tasted "odd" and on my return home, spent the afternoon throwing up and in the toilet. Therefore, can't recommend eating here.

I thought 'this will be interesting', but was pleasantly surprised. It was a smallish cafe with a nice atmosphere and presentation. Good coffee.. There were 3 separate seating areas - towards the back of the building, the general cafe and undercover roadside. The service was both friendly and helpful.

We called into The Lounge for breakfast this morning, wanting a delicious and quick breakfast near Guildford. We have previously had breakfast at The Lounge and found something interesting and delicious. It would appear there has been a change of management, and a change of approach. Firstly, the menu has been simplified, and honestly, it is not that interesting. Eggs,... More

Loved this place. Had the chicken and quinoa so yummy. Their coffees are awesome too. Close to antique shops and bakeries. Feels like going back in time in this old part of Perth.

Was really surprised by some of the negative comments on TA about this establishment. We stopped in for coffee and found it very good: coffee was excellent and service was fine. Prices very reasonable. Free wifi a bonus. Some nice cakes, too, including orange and almond and a chocolate and macadia tart. Breakfast seemed to be the big thing, though,... More

My husband and I had brunch here last Sunday. We both had the corn fritters with bacon, meal. The fritters were heavy and not that enjoyable. On Sunday afternoon we were both very unwell and as this was all we had had to eat we can only presume it was our meal. Chai good, staff pretty friendly.

Peak time for Sunday morning breaky and the service was a wee bit lacking as the waitresses were under a bit of pressure. However, breaky was fine and the coffee excellent! Quite reasonably priced too.

Selected location based on convenience for a semi-business meeting; A big mistake, the service is sloppy, the food i.e. must have come from a frozen packet. Their burgers are tasteless oversized patties of rubbery consistency, they rely on the topping to add taste, the remaining not worth talking about. Bottled sparkling water was good?

I used to really love this place, but after (multiple?) changes of management it has gone dramatically down hill. Service is so la la - and the last food I ordered was not edible. I ordered Avocado Smash on Toast - something I love. I am usually not too picky, but what arrived had so much lemon (and garlic?) in... More
