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.

I have been to the cafe several times over many years and while it may have been good in the past, the service and quality has severely dropped. Last time I went for lunch, $19.50 for a burger (no chips or sides) and $10 for...a juice. Whoa, that is some hefty prices and I cannot justify that any more. The burger was pulled beef and had so much fat through it that I was left which not much other filling. The service over the years has dropped immensely and frequently the wait staff and kitchen staff are rude, ignoring customers and not approachable. We have had to ask for dishes to be cleared off tables, ask for napkins, water etc as it isn’t well thought out and staff are not attentive. It could be a really good place But the food quality has gone down and I would rather spend my money elsewhere at this point.More

This review relates to the Grocer only. We excitedly attended the grocer for the first time today. First we couldn’t view the bone broth area of the fridge as there were two young females one an employee robustly and loudly discussing poor treatment from another...female employee (possibly a manager..?). They stayed there for between 5-10 minutes and we could not access the fridge. Next I saw an older female employee (40’s-50s) walking towards me. I said ‘excuse me do you’…? And that’s as far as I got. The woman cut me off and loudly announced she was ‘taking a phone order’ as she kept marching past me at speed. She did not stop or slow down. She made no attempt to serve me, or have someone else serve me or even indicate she would be back. I saw her later in the store - she still did not approach me or offer any assistance. Consequently I did not purchase the item I was looking for; their loss, that money stayed in my pocket. She made me feel embarrassed for even being there. Last we approached the checkouts - there were two girls serving with no customers. We had to wait for them to finish their conversation before we were served, we felt we’d inconvenienced them. I handed the lady my reusable bag and it was made clear that I needed to pack my own (despite there me being heavily pregnant and juggling a 2 year old). She then proceeded to throw through the next customers items on top of mine as I tried to grab my grocery items from the checkout. No smiles, definitely no service and still expensive. Extremely disappointing! This store does not reflect organic values in their service. You’ll get better service from a self service checkout at a chain supermarket…. It’s such a shame because it’s a great store with a great range, and easily enough staff to manage it. But it’s unlikely I will ever be back, no customer deserves that kind of treatment. I felt like an inconvenience to the staff working there.More

Seriously not impressed with some of the staff in the cafe . For instance - today I ordered a small almond flat white. Out came a large. I asked politely for it to be exchanged . The coffee came back and was SO obviously just...tipped into a small cup rather than remade from scratch as per order. Such a no-no for any barista. Cups and empty dishes are left on the table for ages and zero service from wait staff walking past to clear up. So many examples. I truly don’t think I’ll waste my money here anymore. It was once my favourite place to come. But I’m not interested in paying top dollar for poor service.More

Always beautiful fresh food which is what I go here for. Coffee is average, but juice is always amazing and fresh so I usually opt for juice or a smoothie. Delicious and the staff are always amazing.

Arrived early for lunch, not busy & most just having coffee, ordered cold salads straight from the fridge display, took 15 mins - why ? there was a heap of staff. Very nice food and only $11 for good size bowl of 2 mixed salads....There was regular confusion with a lot of other people's orders and table numbers - how ? - you order with your table number - but staff wandered around asking different tables. Not much smiling going on. Small problems that could be easily fixed but we still enjoyed it. Good place to visit with organic supermarket & garden centre next door.More

The cafe is quite cute with a garden centre built in and a large health/organic shopping market next door. I’ve been before for breakfast (açai bowl) which was quite nice, but the experience today was disappointing. My elderly father’s beef burger was drowning in beetroot,...but he’s a beetroot fan so all was well. My nachos was not great. The corn chips had no cheese - it appeared to have been reserved as a brief sprinkle on the super-overcooked, tough pulled beef that sat atop. The cheese had been cooked so long into the meat, that it was all stuck together in a mass that I could pick up in one solid piece. I needed a knife and fork to seperate it into bite sized pieces. My turmeric latte was also insipid and watery. The service was friendly, but it did take a while to get our meals. They do have quite an impressive selection of gluten free desserts and salads which I’ve had before and are quite nice. I’ll probably go back for them, but not anything in the specials board.More

The cafe is a busy place with garden setting being the better option for a relax & chat. Service is prompt, prices are on the expensive side but ... if I recall my days in a similar cafe/operation ... only reflective of quality choices. No...kids brigade / moms adding to the decibels! Hallelujah. I walked out with a salad box & Savoury tart for dinner. Both were very good.More

Definitely worth checking out for their great food that makes you feel good too. Plenty of options for dietary requirements [ I am a vegan]. They even sell their cookbooks so you can make the food at home! Set in a lovely cafe/shop and next...door to the wonderful Kunara food store which sells so many goodies!More

I had the vegan nachos which cost $16.90. It came in a bowl, which crowded the cornchips so many were untouched by the small serving of cheese and cream. It lacked freshness like a chunky salsa or guacamole, being served with only one large piece...of parsely garnish. Otherwise the two types of beans and the red sauce (which is their version of salsa I think) tasted OK.More

Tried the big vegan breakfast and an almond milk coffee for a special Sunday breakfast with friends. Others in the group tried the eggs two ways and the pancakes. We were all delighted with the service and our delicious food. Generous serves. Everything is ORGANIC!...Great little shop in the foyer and next store is a green grocer and provisions store so you can carry on with the healthy vibe when you get home.More

Whilst some sites list Kunara cafe as dog friendly it really only pretends to be.. With a dog you are not allowed in the outside table area but restricted to a dingy unwelcoming corner of the car park that dosnt look like it is part...of the cafe. Service is friendly and passably professional, food tasty and reasonably priced.More
