We used to always have eggs Benedict here. This is where I learnt to love eggs Benedict and even got friends loving it. Changed owners so changed the menu. We still go there sometimes but it is not our favourite any more. Still good food and service. No complaints.

Been going there for breakfast for years to have the lambs fry and bacon. The standard of the lambs fry is not as good as once and a few visits ago we sent it back and another was cooked. Don't understand why the menu now refers to lambs fry and bacon as "THE OLD PLOUGHMANS" $41.60 for two lambs fry... More

I've been going to this place for breakfast with friends a fair bit, as they do an amazing Canadian Breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast and pancakes. The lactose free coffee is pretty good too. The juices are to die for.. The service is pretty good, but the owner can be a little cantankerous and abrupt. Recently we stopped going, as... More

Also had bruschetta bread - best bread I've had for a while. Also good wine menu as licensed restaurant.... More

My meal was cold (supposed to be hot). No replacement meal, no apology. Service was very average. I left there hungry. They just lost 12 customers.

Breakfast at Farleys is a must. Really great menu - heaps of choice and able to cater for me (I am a Coeliac sufferer so on a gluten free diet) with no problems at all.

Firstly, the waitress had a southern cross tattoo on her neck and looked really unclean and dirty, she slammed water down at our table and gruffly asked us what we wanted. When I queried her over something on the menu she stared me down and gave me a very abrupt "I dunno"... it did not seem apparent that she was... More

The service was absolutely terrible. No one's drink orders were correct, the food took forever to arrive, the waitress dropped a big pile of silverware onto our table (with not enough knives and forks for our group), and $20 is a lot of money to pay for mediocre eggs, even by Australian standards. Maybe it was because it was New... More

The food and service were excellent. I had chicken - well-prepared and imaginatively presented and very tasty indeed.
