Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The place used to be our go to every time we visited Dubbo and it was wonderful. It has obviously changed owners. The experience this time was lees than terrible. We waited for 20 minutes to be served, when we were only one of the...3 tables there. We ordered smashed avocado with poached eggs. What arrived was 2 slices of bread with a very thin spread of a grey mess with a hard boiled egg on top and a handful of dry roasted chick peas.More

Nice quiet place for breakfast. Excellent, friendly service. Great coffee (they have oat milk) and decent breakfast. The hash browns are to die for and my husband loved his breakfast burger. I'd have liked to see a veggie breakfast bowl on the menu - that...would have made it perfect. Would go again.More

Found this little cafe following a google review looking for an early breakfast in Dubbo. They were open at 6am so the choice was made. I arrived a little after 6am to be greeted warmly by the staff on duty who promptly took my order....Omelette and a long black. The service was relaxed and the omelette well cooked along with a delightful coffee. Once finished I paid and was farewelled with a pleasant “have a safe journey. The perfect way to start the day. As my choice for breakfast was either HJs or Maccas I can only say how grateful I was to stumble across this little gem. WIll definitely be going back for more when I return to Dubbo.More

I love you, Short Street Store. I could wake up to you every morning! (Sadly I was just visiting Dubbo for one night). Your coffees were perfect, and green smoothie was delightful. The avo smash looked rather plain but tasted superb (the little crunch in...there was awesome). The homemade hash was cooked to perfection, with a crunchy golden brown outer and a soft inner. My only suggestion would be to add a little more flavour to the inside. Having said that, I’d still order them again next time. Wonderfully warm and inviting staff. Thank you!!!More
