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.

Average food but long wait to get served, with no acknowledgment of customers waiting. Sandwich and coffee was expensive

Best coffee on the island. The rolls and brekkie is great. It gets busy, so you might have to wait. Check the hours on the brochures. All the food places open funny hours and not every day.

Really enjoyed our lunch here. Our party of four all had burgers $18 some with chips (extra $4). They were extra large, well made and tasty.

Smash Espresso is open most days from 6am to 1pm and offer a great variety of breakfast and lunch items to choose from, in addition to coffees, smoothies and cold drinks. I had the club sandwich and it was delicious - $17 isn’t too bad...either. I recommend this as a great place to grab a bite on Christmas Island.More

I have visited this café (there's really only two) a number of times. It is a popular spot for locals to have breakfast and lunch, the opening times work well with the shift workers and even to grab a bite for the 9-5's. The menu...has a good standard range but living on, or visiting, the island you need to be open and understanding that maybe sometimes the menu may need to be altered due to food supply, this said I have enjoyed some meals, the breakfast I had with my girlfriend was nice, not the best presentation but tasted good......... and then the not so nice, such as the sandwich that I had today. I ordered a ham and salad sandwich for lunch a while ago, and it was covered in mayo, personally I've never know anyone to put mayo on ham and salad but it is a very mixed culture over here, so the next time I asked for no mayo. This morning when I ordered again I asked for no mayo. I arrived at work and went to put it in the fridge only to find that the bag had soaked through, opening it up I found my sandwich DROWNED, the bread soggy and completely uneatable. I though about trying to save the contents (food here is expensive and hard to come by) but I almost gagged at the site of it. The good for me does not out weigh the bad and if I go back I will be only ordering an OJ. I like the alfresco feel and the staff are nice.More

Smash is definitely the best place for coffee and brekkie wrap on the island. Based upon observation over a few days, it also seems to really be a local favourite too. I sampled egg and bacon wrap, and turkish toastie, as well as a sandwich...for lunch (salmon) - all good. Christmas Island prices, but worth it.More

Dropped in for coffee and it was ok for a small place on a small island. The pastries looked tasty but did not try them,
