In a climate of more cafes than can be counted everything has to be exceptional to stand out. Avenue Road unfortunately wasn’t exceptional for our table but it was good and the Bombay Breakfast was the winner. The place is a packed hive of locals and their latte art is impressive. I will return in the future to try that... More

Lovely place to be! The morning after we arrived we have been up very early and went into Mosman town for breakfast. This place was buzzing of locals at 6:30 in the morning which we thought was a good sign. We also decided to have breakfast here which was great. The stuff was very friendly, the food was huge portion... More

My girlfriend and I live just up the road from here, so we come on a regular basis. There is a reason we often return, good friendly service, reasonable prices, and of course, great food!

Great location and can usually find parking nearby. Good choices on the menu and friendly staff, good coffee, lovely decor etc. Minor niggle is no split bills which is frustrating when you are out with friends. Still a good venue and worth a visit.

My kids call this the marshmallow cafe because they do the most amazing kids milkshakes with fancy marshmallows on top. This place is a real gem, with great breakfasts, lunches, coffee and snacks. Often busy but never have to wait long for a table. Great service too.

Service attentive and friendly, food above average, fresh tasty but not brilliant nor that different to the norm. Coffee was sweet and delicious, certainly not bitter. But there is a regular waft from blocked and smelly drains in the street. Definitely needs attention, and would make a huge difference to the experience.

This cafe is my favourite, all the food served there are good quality. We have visited this cafe probably more than five times, and they always find a table for us whether we were only two or even four. My only complaint is that they do not change the menu, maybe they do after a long time but since my... More

This is a busy popular place it seems. We had to queue for about 10 minutes for a table which is OK. As well as the inside area there's a bunch of tables outside, get one of those and you can watch the world go by while eating. There's the usual range of Australian style breakfast choices, the four of... More
