What was a reasonable café for breakfast or a coffee before shopping in Camberwell Market, this venue has mysteriously closed

I went into the bookshop cafe to get take away coffee and lunch, The staff were friendly enough and the menu was quite varied however after seeing one of the food handling staff lick her fingers and proceed to touch my food I will not be eating here again. As the contact phone number is incorrect and they have no... More

Finally found my daily breakfast venue! I've tried every cafe in Camberwell and The Bookshop Cafe wins, hands down. Food is great and fresh, coffee is perfect, and the service is wonderful (I'm a fan of smiles). Also, it's really affordable ($6.90 for a coffee and bacon & egg sandwich) The biggest plus: they accept Eftpos with no minimum!

FYI, THE NUMBER LISTED IS !!NOT!! FOR THE BOOKSHOP CAFE. Someone has made a mistake and it's our private home number. We have mentioned this to them but nothing has been changed. Perhaps try yellow pages or ring from a business card if you need to contact them.

The staff are friendly and the food comes out quickly, but it's pretty average. Toasted foccacias come out cold in the middle, and everything is a bit bland. Disappointing.

We tried so many places in Camberwell since we moved here and this is the only place that provides everything. Lovely coffee, amazing service and comfy outdoor seating. We are yet to eat here but I am sure it'll be just as amazing as everything else. It's so consistent.

Terrible coffee, burnt and overextracted. Food is generally poorly seasoned, muffin on eggs benedict hardly toasted. Won't be back.

.....A great place for lunch, great coffee and staff are friendly without being over the top. Prices are spot on and so is the wifi. I think I've just found my new caff for work lunch breaks and weekend brekky.

Ordered a banana smoothie and when it arrived it had no banana in it. Sent it back and when they returned it tasted of artificial banana flavouring. My mother ordered an iced coffee was warm. When we sent that back it returned with a few ice cubes added to it. Terrible drinks and the food wasn't that amazing either.
