People rate the coffee here, sorry whoever you are, you need to get out more, I even had three shots in a long black and not even in the top 20. However the food for me was truely spectacular I had the lemon meringue pancakes...and I wish I had taken a pic before licking the plate clean, I thought I was at a top notch starred restaurant, praise for the awesome presentation to the kitchen.More

We went for breakfast only open at the end of the week . Our breakfast was ok but we found it hard biting into the sourdough crusts , they were so hard ( it was disappointing. ) The staff were again very pleasant.

We came for breakfast and asked for outdoor seating. We ordered coffee first but took a good 10min wait before we got them. I had the miso egg and my brother had the Reuben sandwich. The waitress asked if I wanted the extra salmon and...avocado on the side and I said no but i was surprised to see the extra salmon and avocado on the side of my dish when I didn’t ask for them… the food took sometime to come out. Maybe a good 15-20min. Wish the service was faster but the waitress was lovely.More

Awesome vegan breakfast options! Wait staff more than happy to accomodate swapping out eggs for chat potatoes. Good serving of avocado with the ciabatta bread and the fried mushrooms were amazing. Coffee by the Tattooed Sailor was excellent and the cafe has oat and other...plant milk options. Highly recommend. ☕️More

Called in for the very first time at Caffiend on Thursday morning 08/04/21. Immediatly made welcome by staff, a good selection of choices from the menu choosing two breakfasts + 2 drinks. Service was fast & food well cooked, the interior environment of Caffiend is...very clean & spacious with plenty of seating either inside or outside. Paid in total for 2 breakfasts & two drinks AUD $58.30 We will both visit again & highly recommended.More

A beautiful Reuben sandwich, one of the nicest I've ever had, just as good as Katz. Would 100% recommend!

Staff were really friendly and accommodating with special food requests. Breakfast was delicious (loved the chilli jam) and coffee really good, especially the cold brew.
