I ordered the salmon stack breakfast and asked the waitress if I could switch the salmon for avocado, she said sure. To add extra avocado to a breakfast is $3.50... More

Spinifex is our preferred choice for a breakfast venue. It offers a secluded garden at the back which is great for dining with your pet during the summer. The service is polite and fast, the meals are large and healthy. Love it!

Great food at very affordable prices. Don't let the occasional train passing put you off trying this cafe. Had lunch with my son he had the all day breakfast which was delicious,while I ordered duck risotto when finally arrived after order stuff up was well worth the delay. Try it you'll like it

The service was terrific, coffee was perfect and all our breakfasts were delicious. The menu offered quite a few different options rather than the usual bacon and eggs.

We discovered this little cafe afte taking a wrong turn at lunch time during a course. We explained we needed to be in and out and they accomodated us easily. We went back for breakfast and lunch the next day. The food was fresh and of a high quality. Will definatly be heading there next time I am in Kennsington
