I made the mistake of visiting during my lunch break on a Friday. The staff are always friendly and the coffee and frappes are good. I ordered a frappe and sausage roll. The café was moderately busy but not full. There were at least 5...staff working but tables were taking a long time to be cleared and it became clear that the food service just was not working. My frappe came promptly and was good. My sausage roll never arrived and after 20 minutes waiting I had to leave to return to work. The made it a very expensive frappe and a very disappointing experience.More

Came here with the family to have a coffee. Ordered two coffees, an orange juice and a frappe. It was all okay, but took ages for the frappe to come and the cafe wasnt even busy. They definitely forgot about it. Frappe was way too...sweet aswell.More

I enjoy the Robert Harris frappes but neither cafe in Northlands Mall can make them. Having tried three times over the summer to get a frappe or iced coffee I have been unsuccessful every time. There are better options in the mall for summer coffee.

We only wanted bacon & toast however we were told we had to to pay for the eggs as it only came as Bacon & Eggs. It took ages to explain we didn’t want the eggs only toast n bacon ... ‘but you have to...pay $11 for the eggs, even if you don’t want them’ .... seriously??? Their customer service is terrible. Maybe they work on the assumption that they have a trapped customer being at the other end of the mall from the food court. Oh, and the coffee was weakMore

Stopped for a snack during shopping in the Mall. Lady could barely bring herself to stop chatting to a friend to even serve me. Ordered muffin and coffee asked for them to be warmed with some butter Arrived muffin stone cold, staff reluctant to warm...it up when taken back. Tables around us needed cleared - not done the during our visit, rubbish on the floor just left not picked up - not pleasant certainly never bother there again Far from our normal good standard of Robert Harris CafesMore

Second visit after they forgot our cheese rolls on first one. This time the cheese rolls took ages and were squashed flat. Messed up our drink order as well. Staff don't appear to be all that organised. Don't intend trying a third visit.

Had a cheese scone that was really dry, not enough butter to hide that! Also had a muffin which was moist and tasty. Overall go for the muffins and leave the scones!

Visited twice in the past 2 weeks. Such a busy place but staff cope well. Nice coffee and food great. Cafe is always full and buzzing with chatter. Nice place to visit. Food tasty.
