Had a brief visit to Thirroul and was underwhelmed by the offerings of other cafes. It was a relief to walk into this nicely revamped cafe and find such a warm welcome, coupled with delicious fresh food. We had 2 salads and the cannelloni and everything was so fresh and delicious. Excellent value for money. You do have to pay... More

Very, very expensive cafe. Coffee is only mediocre with plenty of much better options in the area. The cafe itself and the service is fine but dull coffee and no cash left in my wallet.

I go every week! I can't fault any of the food. It's all fresh, tasty and gourmet. The coffee is great too and the girls who work there are so friendly and welcoming. It can get very busy on the weekends but it's worth the wait. I can recommend this place as its the best in Thirroul.

Since having a very poor experience at another cafe in Thirroul, we have become regulars at Cucina's. Can't recommend and particular item on the menu as it's all great. The coffee is consistently good. The service is outstanding and we are always made to feel welcome. This assured as one of the owners is always in attendance. The menu contantly... More

A wonderful array of quiches, tarts and scrumptious salads ......hard to choose. It wasn't cheap, however the portions were very generous and of good quality. My only complaint was that I found the quinoa, cauliflower and roasted pumpkin salad to be very salty. Nothing in those ingredients should be salty so maybe someone in the kitchen was a bit heavy...

Went there for breakfast and the only complaint was the large size! I had a BLAT and struggled to finish. Very tasty. Coffee was full flavoured and delicious.

Six for lunch, we had a table on the footpath, which was very good, we had a variety of meals and all of them were very tasty. I had the Pumpkin and Fetta Tart and it was very filling and had a great flavour. The staff were polite, friendly and very efficient, and the meals were quite quick. I can... More

We had breakfast here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The BLT and eggs Benedict with bacon were both excellent and large serves. The cutlery and quality napkins were brought to the table in a tray and not wrapped -hooray, I don't like the cheap, flimsy ones which are wrapped around the cutlery. Good coffee too

All I can say is, if I am paying almost $10 for a piece of savoury pastry like an arrancini ball or quiche in a cafe that offers takeaway and sit down I expect at least a small side salad. Instead it's a further $8 or so to get salad!! Expensive and not so great atmosphere.

Great salads and things like frittatas and quiches for lunch in the go. Decent range of cakes and coffee is good. Eat in and take away. Prices are fairly high but quality of food is worth it. Vibe in cafe is nice, though a bit sterile. Definitely recommend for a tasty lunch.
