Loved our smashed avocado on sourdough with poached eggs. Very generous serving of avocado, would have loved to divide it onto another piece of sourdough. Really tasty variety of baby tomatoes and miniature herbs. This is a winning dish and I would happily have it everyday

You can't book but worth while lining up for - near the beach at Mona Vale so you can walk off your indulgences after with a lovely walk along the beach.. The food was delicious - I had the vege burger and delicious potato wedges. The Granola and meat burger ordered by my friends were just as delicious. Coffee perfect.... More

Sunday breakfast/brunch at Armchair was a great experience. However, would have liked more breakfast menu items past 11:30 given it was Sunday. Muffins/Friands were moist but the icing was a bit sweet. Bacon and egg rolls were perfectly done - bun was soft, aioli was flavourful and egg and bacon were cooked perfectly as requested. Leg ham with pesto ciabatta... More

Come here often and am always impressed. Being so busy they manage to get the food out quick and on point. For breakfast the bacon and egg roll is the best. Coffee is excellent too.

A return visit after a year and the food is still delicious and generous. Lovely atmosphere, with lots of beautiful things to buy and the plates are piled high with crispy bacon, masses of chunky avocado and crunchy toast with gooey poached eggs. A winner.
