Had both a breakfast and an after dinner desert here over 2 days. Breakfast service a bit slow but the food was good when it arrived. Desert was also tasty and good value.

Had eaten here before when it was under a different name. This is more casual dining and was perfect for lunch with friends. A varied menu, the fish tacos disappeared quickly, the pork belly burger was yum and a salad with grilled peaches, walnuts and proscuito very tasty. Add in a glass of wine and we all enjoyed this place. The service was perhaps a little "distracted" but we weren't in a hurry.

This cafe opens later than most of the neighboring cafes, when we arrived (10 mins after opening time) the staff were still setting up and told us they needed another 10 mins to set up. They were then very slow to take our order and slow bringing out our food despite us being the first to order.

The poached eggs were hard boiled and the staff were unable to accommodate a simple request for a brioche bun instead of bread for my baby's breakfast, despite having brioche on the menu.

Overall really disappointing experience.

A very nice surprise during our weekend in Wollongong. Archies delivered great food and service. Three dishes including vegan / gluten free & vegetarian requirements were impeccable. Very tasty, good presentation. The menu is quite clear but our waiter did check with kitchen and verified with us, which made me feel so confortable. Overall lovely, and all for a very reasonable price. I'd recommend the place in a heartbeat!

Walking around north Wollongong beach stumbled apron this little gem. A few glasses of wine, nibbling on salt & pepper calamari with a nice view of the beach. Would recommend.
