Lovely experience at Old John's today. I had a delicious egg and bacon roll, such good bacon. The highlight was a blueberry and lavender smoothie, one of the best things I ever drank. Great service, I did however get locked out the back briefly, luckily I had my phone with me!

Noisy and chaotic - certainly not a relaxing or enjoyable experience on this occasion. The acoustics of the cafe promote a lot of echoing. Seating is of poor quality. There is a fine line between retro and disgraceful.

Delicious coffee and fab food. My parents loved their lattes and my iced coffee was probably the best I've ever had! The bacon & egg roll is a classic and my avo brekky with lime, chilli, mint and a poached egg was sublime. Thankyou Old John's!

My partner and I had breakfast here last Saturday. Great spot along a strip of cafes and restaurants just a short walk from the jetty foreshore. Friendly staff, great coffee, nice feel. Good selection of breakfast options. The bacon and egg roll and rueben were both delicious. Perfect start to the weekend! Highly recommend!

Amazing breakfast in Coffs Harbour at Old Johns. Rated #2 on Trip Advisor - #1 has a lot to live up to. Honey Chai Tea with Almond Milk, Banana Milkshake with Chia Seeds, Avocado Stack & Scrambled Eggs. Yum! Will definitely revisit before our trip is over.

Super busy morning, but quickly acknowledged with a smile and tended to shortly after by pleasant wait staff. Ice coffee was delightful. Avocado breaky with perfect soft egg and feta cheese on sourdough bread, garnished with cherry tomatoes, parsley, pesto and hot sauce (hmmm a little clash in there somewhere) but enjoyable. Fish Tacos were delicious but one more would... More
