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.

I was in Cessnock for the Easter weekend and after a day and a half of visiting cellar doors, today was a chill day. At lunch time I went for a walk and decided to try Blanches. Wonderful, friendly efficient staff and the fish and...chips serving was huge. I can thoroughly recommend a visit, The coffee was great and prices are reasonable.More

Great value for money, had the fried chicken burger and my partner had the sausage and egg muffin, accompanied with 2 good coffees. Friendly staff, great way to fuel up after go-karting. Note they are now down the street at 130 Vincent St.

This is a lovely cafe. Very friendly staff and the meals are huge which is good to see. The menu is a fantastic price with a good selection of food to choose. We had the snitzel and steak, so fresh and the steak was good...for my husband and very well cooked to what he asked for. Highly recommended this cafe. The price is great.More

The sign attracted me as it stated keto meals available. The lady behind the counter was so friendly and happy she made the atmosphere welcoming. My husband was hungry so ordered the bunless burger and was very happy with his choice. Meal was well cooked,...large and very reasonably priced. All I wanted was a smoothie which they couldn't make as had run out of ingredients. Otherwise it was a great place for a meal and would highly recommend it for good, wholesome local food.More

If you want great food with bright and entertaining service, this is the place to go. We had the most fantastic breakfast, great coffee and fun. The ladies (and the chef too) are bright sparkly people who clearly enjoy their work. Our breakfast was huge,...delicious and whipped up in a flash. The coffee is pretty good too. You can sit inside or outside, the atmosphere is relaxing. Daily newspapers are available to peruse at your leisure, no rush to kick you out here.More

The interior was dated, Staff very friendly. What attracted me to go in was the sign that said local produce from the farm to the plate. 3 menu's on the table but NO drinks listed. I ordered Eggs Beni with bacon - it came to...the table with NO bacon (was cooked just forgot to put it on) as a result the baby spinach was cooked and I left most of it. The bacon was brought over when I told the wait staff. It was after 2 pm when I was there but only a few people came in for coffee and or takeaways.More

The pleasant staff were the only thing going for this very average cafe. The interior is dated and rather odd and could not be described as welcoming. A courtyard at the front of the cafe was littered with junk which you had to walk through...to get inside. Three different menus were presented with some items scribbled out, no drinks menu was offered. Of three kids meals options two were crumbed chicken based. The menu selections are uninspiring and in truth we struggled to find anything we wanted to pick. With only two other tables occupied it felt like a long wait for our wraps to arrive, and with a three year old with us her meal should have been first out, not last to allow time to cool. I ate half my wrap and didn’t feel inclined to take the other half with me. Pricing is competitive but the operation feels very amateurish and not thought through.More

This place was odd- no other word for it. It felt very hill billyish- definitely not my usual type of place to eat. Food was pleasant enough for a cafe, my poached eggs was good but the place didn’t feel clean at all. Not terrible...but definitely not excellentMore

Left here this morning feeling so satisfyingly full! Had the pancake stack, you definitely get your moneys worth. They tasted so fresh and were so delicious. My friend has the eggs Benedict with bacon and said they were also really good. He finished the whole...plate. Serving sizes are really good, as is presentation. Staff are very friendly and will ensure you're enjoying your meal. I'm vegetarian and very happy with how many vegetarian dishes they have on the menu. They also have endless gluten free dishes. Such a great spot to come and eat. :)More
