I've been to lotus that many times I cant even count... however the last two times I've been for brekkie, I have noticed that their meals have been very inconsistent and not as nice as they usually are. Can definitely tell that the boss is cost cutting. I had a half serve of smashed avo, and i literally received a... More

Judging by the number of locals at Lotus today, it is a popular venue for Sunday Brunch. The menu has good choices, including options to create your own meal. The food is very good and even though they were busy, the service was efficient. The decor is simple and is in keeping with a no fuss place to dine. A... More

Went to Lotus with my family for breakfast during the Christmas break. We were seated outside, even though it was quite a warm day we were sheltered and provided plenty of water throughout our meal. Drinks were ice cold and refreshing and our food was devine. I highly recommend the sweet corn cakes with poached eggs. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed breakfast here two mornings in a row while staying across the street at the Junction hotel. I enjoyed a breakfast which consisted of sweet corn cakes, topped with spicy chorizo, greens and two poached eggs. It was the BEST. My husband had the "Build your own breakfast" which he also enjoyed. Our waiter gave us some complimentary vegimite,... More

Excellent menu and wine selection. The service is wonderful and overall the experience is very good value for the quality. The atmosphere is perfect for a relaxed meal with partner, friends or colleagues. I like a waiter who gives you a smile and has a chat no matter how brief. It doesn't cost anything and it really leaves you with... More
