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.

Food is good but service is terrible. Serving staff are rude. Often I think good food outweighs bad service, but not in this case, you don't need this much angst at breakfast!

We had a large table (7) and one guest always asks for something not strictly on the menu but the staff were super accommodating and the food came out perfect. Thank you to the hard working, brilliant staff- especially the waitress who was so efficient...and polite despite being run off her feet !More

The food and drinks here were delicious and at a good price. However, our waitress, who I believe is the owner's daughter, needs to really work on her customer service and not give someone who asks a simple question attitude. My friend and I went...for lunch here at 1pm, hardly late for lunch and when I ordered the Reuben Sandwich was told in a scolding tone that I can't have it because it sold out at lunchtime, like we were extremely late for the lunch service at 1pm. Other places I have dined usually tell you if they no longer have something available when they give you the menu and usually in a polite manner. My friend also ordered a thick shake on almond milk, and whilst the milk shake maker was lovely enough to check if my friend could have ice cream in this or not, when it was delivered it looked more like a milkshake than a thick shake. My friend waited for the waitress to return to check before she started consuming (which took some time), only to be told rudely with an eye roll that it is a milkshake. My friend was happy to consume the drink despite the wrong order being taken and the attitude to her simple, polite question, however just didn't want to be overcharged for something she didn't receive. When we went inside to pay the bill, same waitress took payment and didn't even ask my friend if she would like a receipt. When my friend asked for a receipt as she needs it for reimbursement, same eye roll and response that she'd already said no on the machine so it was too late. My friend persisted and the lady who made our milkshakes appeared (assume this is the owner) and finally gave her a receipt. Sad to say despite the good food, the lack of customer service by this teenage girl, when the cafe wasn't even that busy is very off putting and makes you think about all the other cafes on offer in the Pokolbin, Cessnock and Lovedale areas.More

Visited for coffee and breakfast. Good caring table service. Catered for my vegan husband. I had the smashed eggs with smoked salmon which also had lovely pickled red onions. Price was $15 and well worth it.

Visited here for a final breakfast before heading home, and found it as good as the last time (2 years ago). Great service, delicious food, and good prices. Make sure you book a table as it gets quite busy.

Friendly atmosphere, Excellent coffee and the food is on point. The staff are very welcoming and if it’s your thing grab a pot or plant on the way out from the nursery! A little hidden gem that is worth the visit whilst in the Hunter...Valley!!More

Whilst the food was tasty and the venue quaint (who doesn't love a nursery cafe), the staff were not what I would call welcoming or friendly. Stopped in for a Sunday breaky and coffee and we got just that, nothing more and nothing less.

I wouldn't have said it was divine but it was definitely super expensive. Nice venue, but I don't think it justifies the price

Stopped in for brunch. Seated promptly & ordered in record time. Cafe was busy but not flat out. Our bacon & scrambled eggs were hot & appetising. A little pricy but with EBook good value for the money - give it a try 😀
