Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a little gem of a restaurant. The ambiance is amazing and the food is delicious. One of the best dining experiences in Sydney . It never disappoints.

Quirky little cafe. Niche offerings with twist to the usual breakfast menu, good sized portions. Great coffee. Good vibes.

Great location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Parramatta, yet not to far walk from train and Westfield. Comfy seating, friendly and welcoming service. Menu with only limited options but all sound so good, hard to decide what to eat. Mushrooms were delicious....French toast was cold though, not cooked as expected. Presented well though. Spicy chai was amazing and generous pot size. Prices reasonable to high to pay for lunch. Lucky it was great weather for sitting outside. This place deserves the high reviews we read before goingMore

Best & most intentional coffee in Parramatta! Creative and delicious food—so far favourite café in all of Sydney. The owner/roaster cares deeply for excellence and has taken a narrow space in Parramatta and turned it into a hipster café’s dream find!

I drop by to Circa once every 2 months (when we are not in lockdown) for a leisurely weekend breakfast. The baked eggs always remind me of the breakfast's I have had when visiting Turkey. The delicious spicy sujuk, combined with the fetta cheese and...tomato is simply delicious. Though not cheap, still delicious food at about $30 per person with food order and a tea. Good service and great decor.More

Stopped by for a quickish brunch. Sat at a streetside table which was fine as the road is very quiet. My cappuccino was excellent and having been advised the large size is served in a takeaway cup I downsized. I ordered the Ottoman Eggs. It...was my tastiest meal for some time. Perfectly poached eggs on crumbed eggplant with labneh and sage butter + delicious focaccia bread. Nice service too.More

Delicious Turkish style breakfast in very popular local cafe. A friend and i came here at 9am on Sunday in order to miss the rush. We were seated on arrival by the super friendly waitress and ordered. The mains of baked eggs with sujuk were...deliciously spicy. the sides of avocado and the more traditional fried halloumi cheese and honey were perfect accompaniments and a couple of teas and coffees each. All in all, more expensive then some other cafes (price for two was just over $80) but worth coming here for the occasional treat. The food is truly delicious!More

Local Go-to spot.. Consistent delish food any time of day! Love all the items, especially the baked eggs and ottoman eggs but can’t go passed the Barramundi. No matter how it’s cooked and with the seasonal menu change, I end up ordering the Barra! Always...beautifully presented with crispy skin and wonderful fresh flavour. Coffee is awesome and usually i order a cold drip or ask for the weekly special - will keep any coffee snob happy! Have attended solo, with bub, with friends and the service is always the same, professional friendly and efficient. I love that the owner gets his hands dirty as well. Can’t fault Circa. Well done guys!More

Lunched today at Circa with my work colleagues for the first time. Most ordered the Ottoman eggs which all agreed was delicious. I had the roasted pumpkin. Very flavoursome and filling. Will definitely return to try alternatives.

What an utterly brilliant place to find in Parramatta. Circa is very quirky unique and a wonderful place. Had breakfast here on 8 March 2020 which was absolutely brilliant. The food was excellent, delicious and Circa has an exciting variety of dishes. The Ottoman eggs...served with the perfect poached eggs with crumbed eggplant, garlic labneh and burnt chilli and sage and fried leeks was delicious flavoursome and fantastic. The presentation of the dish second to none. The halloumi, corn & quinoa fritter with a smoky capsicum relish with poached eggs was also faultless. The dishes were creative and had a balanced flavour. Life is to short to have a bad tea or coffee. My partner drinks coffee and as a coffee guru said the coffee was great with the right balance of flavour. I am a tea drinker and living in Australia for over 21 years this is only the second place I have found that has served a cup of tea with a proper cup and saucer which as an avid tea drinker was a pleasant and wonderful surprise. The tea I opted for was “Good morning high grade black tea / Assam, yunnan” Apart from the creative menu, the great coffee and a proper cup of tea the staff were brilliant. The staff were friendly, efficient and genuinely pleased to welcome customers into the cafe. The manager was very friendly and professional with a lovely bubbly personality. If your looking for a quirky unique and quaint place to eat then look no further than Circa. Places like this should be supported so that local businesses thrive. Well done to the owner and please thank all staff involved. There are people who appreciate places like this. We will be back even though we don’t live near Parramatta.More

I rarely visit Parramatta but if I do I ensure I include a visit to Circa. Excellent atmosphere, great staff, fabulous coffee and a lovely savoury tart this afternoon. A real treat!! I purchased the Cold Brew Coffee also and look forward to enjoying with...ice this Saturday. I am never disappointed and find the selection of treats to be interesting and certainly high quality. Thanks and I look forward to my next visit.More
