I bought eggs benedict with bacon. It was two poached eggs, on thin toast with one slice of bacon and some tangy sauce. This was the worst eggs bene' I have had. My daughter had eggs on toast and they got the wrong eggs. The large coffee came in a bowl; for 50c more, and it was nice tasting, but... More

The team are friendly, coffee not bad and there's lots of variety on the menu. We enjoy visiting. Cakes and lunches are always good. The sandwiches are a little expensive for a take away but the chicken, walnut, tarragon is simply delicious and my absolute favourite. On our most recent visit I tried the chocolate, ginger, lime cake and it... More

We had brekkie each morning at Shingles for our 10 day stay, the food was Fantastic, the staff very friendly and helpful. It is a very relaxing place to eat, then sit and read the paper over a great cup of coffee, never being rushed. As soon as we ordered our first coffee we were offered a loyalty card so... More

Visited this restaurant on the hottest day of the year and despite the heat the staff were friendly and the service good. Our visit was mid morning for breakfast/Brunch and the meals were good size portions, well presented flavoursome.

We were staying in the Monaco apartments and on our last morning with time short decided on breakfast out. As others have said service was fast, accurate and friendly. The healthy breakfast was delicious, top marks for the spinach and the coffee smooth. Great spot.

Super friendly staff, super quick service and great coffee. Well Done Shingle Inn. This was my go to coffee destination, made perfectly each and every time regardless of who was making it for you.

I do love the Shingle Inn. Great coffee, a good menu and lovely cakes. We visited a few times staying above at the Monaco so it was super convenient and all staff were friendly. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast which kept us going all day.

Tried this cafe for the first time yesterday. We had a discounted brekkie as we are staying at Monaco. They were kind enough to let us use our vouchers, despite it being a public holiday. Brekkie was delicious and nice coffee too. Friendly, efficient service too. Will try and get back for lunch before we leave.

Popped in for a sort of late breakfast on a recent Sunday before checking out the markets in Bulcock Street. If you haven’t been to a Shingle Inn before, then you might want to know that it’s part of a chain of restaurants that in my opinion is fairly safe no matter which one you are in. I’m pretty sure...

We ate here every morning of our holiday and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the coffee and the egg and bacon wrap is a must try. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Worth a visit if you are staying in the area.
