Sunday morning we were checking out of the Emporium. Rushed over to Buzz for a breakfast before leaving town. On first impression I wouldn't have stayed based on the decor- they could improve that but when breakfast arrived promptly I was pleasantly surprised. Both breakfasts were impressive. We ordered the breakfast platter and the egg white omelette. Both filled with... More

Don't know where they get the relish but it is awesome. Bacon nice and crispy and egg just runny without being messy. Rolls toasted to perfection. Coffee is good. Petite four chicken sandwiches are good as are the pork sandwich.

Excellent venue with usually easy parking. Can be busy at times however. Excellent selection of dishes -- all very tasty. Great coffee & smoothies & excellent service. We come here quite often from Brookfield. This restaurant far surpasses the other two outlets at Tennyson & Gasworks.

Dined here by chance on a week day night late last month with two friends. First thing that stood out was the fantastic service! We were allocated a waitress for the night (I think her name was Emily?) and she was sooooo friendly I felt like we were family already! She really took the time to answer our questions, describe...

Simple menu. Service was very pleasant and helpful. Sat by the window to watch the lights of gasworks. A little expensive, but probably reasonable for the area. I enjoyed the Wagu Steak Pizza.

In the end this was a disappointment. It started well with an interesting menu, good reviews from friends and a good location. But very slow service, high prices and one out of three meals poorly cooked let it down badly. The belly pork was excellent - the roast chicken was dry and over-cooked. They took nearly half an hour to... More

I've been to Buzz many times for breakfast as I like the location and varied menu. It is right by the river and a great park which is fantastic for kids. However the service is very variable and this lets the place down. Some of the staff are great and very personable, others appear quite unfriendly at times and you... More
