Today I met my friend here for lunch. Our experience was not good. She sat for 20 minutes with no service, I was late but when I arrived we sat for another 10 minutes with no service before ordering at the counter directly. A very slow procedure. Everything we touched was sticky I.e. table top, chairs, toilet door handle. I... More

So as suggested by the walking guide we popped into the cafe for a spot of morning tea We had a coffee and an... More

This place is our local. It has consistently good food and coffee. Let down on occasion by staffing but made up for by a consistent manager. Great location opposite Maple Room to watch the world go by. Extremely dog friendly outside.

We had brunch here, but were disappointed that two of our party of seven had their meals missed in our order, the food arrived sporadically and by the time we realised we did not want to wait for the orders to be delivered.

This was one of my favourite place to enjoy great coffee. But the terrible and loud getto rapper music made me leave quickly.

Great local for coffee. Generally good service. Usual cafe fare but nothing extraordinary. Nice baking which is always fresh Wish there was better kids selection in both the cabinet food and menu. For example, palmers down the road do a great $10 kids breakfast, hint hint!

Had my first sit down lunch at BDR and was very impressed. Four great salads on offer was the first of my selection difficulties! I settled for a split - the chorizo and grilled veges and the Beetroot and pumpkin. Good size and good value. There was plenty of options including specials menu and display case favs. You can choose... More

Average coffee, average food, cold inside in winter. Not as good as it used to be. Near where we re staying so we like to walk there but overall disappointing experience. Functional not friendly staff. Menu a bit average and things not available. Needs a big overhaul. Not recommended.

If you are in the neighbourhood it is worth stopping in to this nice cafe for a brunch. Good menu and cabinet food on offer.

The Benson Road Deli makes great coffee and the food is good. It's very definitely cafe type food, with a large selection from the counter and also an a la carte menu. It's open from 7am to 10 pm daily. You order at the counter and they bring the meals to the table. There are two small rooms with tables... More
