Two friends and I had a delicious home cooked Hipster breakfast at this trendy little cafe. Very impressed with both the food and the service.

Have eaten here a couple of times and never fails to disappoint. From the beans, to the sausages and even the bacon and egg rolls you cant fault this place. Only grip would be the smoothies and fruit juices. The coffee is also good.

After an exhausting Saturday morning of bargain hunting at Glebe markets a trip to Clipper was just what we needed! Avocado toast and Home-made baked beans w poached eggs 🍳and halloumi were both great choices! Replenishing juices and great coffees too. Thoroughly a great cafe I would recommend with a huge menu to choose from! Enjoy!

We stopped for coffee and a snack after church on a Sunday. The service, decor, menu and price were excellent. We had the pesto, mushroom eggs and the avocado and tomato on toast. Coffees were excellent and they were able to accommodate an unusual drink request. All very nice. Groovy, reasonably priced, delicious and friendly!

Nice and cosy! Great coffee. My baked eggs/hot pot with lamb&herbs sausage(?) were really filling and tasted flavorful. best place to get some uni work done with free wifi and power socket on all tables too. Waitress was very helpful and even got me a phone charger when i asked if they got any! This place ticks all the boxes... More

We went there for a late breakfast and it wasn't good at all. Service is slow, meals arrived before the drinks. Bacon roll dry as they forgot to put the sauce inside. Expresso is horrible, taste of burnt. The place by itself needs a refresh and you have much better places around like WellCo. Won't come back and clearly don't... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
Glebe
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
