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.

Good selection of hot and cold snacks. Chicken parmigiana burger was overcooked and had lots of crumb but little chicken. Certainly a disappointment.

This friendly cafe offers great breakfasts and free Wifi. The island is dependant on shipments of food by sea, so food prices are more akin to Australian capital cities. Has a play corner for children. Good coffee.

Lovely relaxed vibe from the staff and the setting. Spanish omelette was on specials board, so could not resist and it sure didn’t disappoint. Mum, again, had bacon and eggs on toast and was a much better experience than the previous establishment she had this...at. And as others have reviewed, fantastic coffee. Staff very friendly and engaging. Will definitely be back.More

We had coffee ( and the most delicious muffins) on three occasions here, and breakfast on one occasion and can only agree with other reviewers in regard to the great coffee, food and service. We tried a couple of others but this was our go-to...place for coffee.More

Went for a coffee, we had 2 lattes, they were burnt and incredibly bitter just disgusting. Do your taste buds a favour, and go elsewhere.

An absolute must, when visiting Norfolk Island. Open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, Nomes and her team will not disappoint, with great food, smooth coffee and tasty treats, all bundled up in a gorgeous and quaint setting.

A cafe with these prices should share wifi, very disappointing. Ordered a chicken burger with chips and can of drink $32 au and positive it was half a chicken tender filled with lettuce. Be prepared to pay more than your used to. I would not...go back only for the reason there is no shared wifi. Coffee and scones is good.More
