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.

Delicious food. Friendly service. The chef cares about his product and you can taste it in every bite. They know their regulars with a comfortable and casual atmosphere. Next time I’m in Cessnock I’ll drop in for a bite.

Outstanding coffee and food at the Ink. Daily specials and terrific burgers, especially if you like the full deluxe burgers with the lot. I can highly recommend both the pasta special and the burgers. Topped with a runny egg, delicious. The Crema was sublime and...just the right temperature, excellent stuff.More

Lovely sandwiches,really reasonably priced and served quickly and efficiently. But the best of all was the very friendly and helpful staff. It started raining while we were eating lunch and my daughter went to bring the car closer so the baby wouldn't get wet. The...lovely girl from the cafe rushed out in the rain to put traffic cones in a parking space to save it for her. Service with a smile and definitely would recommend .More

Stopped here for breakfast, following advice from my fellow trippers. The food was cooked to perfection and very quickly. It tasted as good as it looked. I don't drink coffee, but my sister said it was excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with...my dietary restrictions. We will be breakfasting here for the remainder of our trip. Highly recommended.More
