We had breakfast & coffee here before a day of exploring the area. Service was quite slow, even though they’d only just opened and there wasn’t a lot of customers. We waited for at least 5 mins for menus. Not a big range of options...for breakfast to be honest. We ordered a coffee each which came out relatively quickly & was quite nice. As for our meals, I ordered the porridge & Hubby ordered poached eggs with sausage and halloumi. It was at least a good 25-30mins after ordering before we received the meals. Hubby’s eggs were quite small, toast was overdone, portions quite small for what we paid for it.More

We were recommended the coffee by our accommodation, and they were not wrong. It was great. The pesto mushrooms with polenta and the french toast (actually croissants! - yum!) were both delicious. We highly recommend this busy little cafe.

The menu is yummy and varied. The staff were friendly and efficient. The interiors were cosy and warm on a chilly autumn day.

Small and cosy cafe with lots of warmth and character. Breakfast was excellent with lots to chose from. Excellent customer service and very inviting.

We had the very best vegetarian burger ever! It was a massive lentil patty with salad, 1/2 an avocado, on a toasted Turkish bread. The coconut oil garnish on the plate added a wonderfully unique flavour note. I wish I lived closer so I could...enjoy this often. 😋More

Stopped by for breakfast on a cold rainy summers day. Place was packed - obviously popular. Staff were friendly and accomodating and found a table for us as soon as it became available. Service was swift, coffee was good and meals were generally tasty. Unfortunately...the poached eggs were over cooked but we were offered fresh replacements without us even asking. A good experience overall and will definitely be back.More

So I went their to a little/ quick bite to eat during a long drive. The waitress' seemed very rushed. I ordered the Mushrooms on toast with the incentive that the menu said food was locally, seasonally sourced. Love a mushy! I couldnt believe I...couldnt stomach it past the few bites I took!! Dramatic but TRUE! Never in my life happened to me before. All I could taste was the nut butter they smothered the mushrooms in. I gave it a good go, put some salt on it for some seasoning/ flavour, got them to put some pepper on, tried to use the huge dolop of Sour cream, SOMETHING to make me go "Oh ok, I get it now" NOTHING it was just terrible! The toast was so hard I couldnt cut through it and then sogged up in the middle so I just kinda teared at it. It was just a big plate of brown grossness that I just gave up on and then the biggest kick in the teeth - I then paid $20 for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $20!!!! I just walked out after paying in real disappointment. The first meal in my life I've never been able to stomach. Never again.More

I have visited and enjoyed the Red Door on many occasions. However something has changed ? I knew we could be in trouble when I asked for our table to be wiped down and the lady I asked seemed rather annoyed, I wanted to sit...at a clean table. And then the long wait.......(25min and we still didn't get our food) .We also observed the cafe appeared to be unclean , this was confirmed when I saw the kitchen hand man handling a customer's poached eggs, I mean really giving them a good feel with his bare hands. At this stage we just wanted to pay for our coffee and leave! However we ended up paying for not only our coffee but also for the meals we didn't receive or eat. Bring back the old days of the Red Door!More
