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.

Beautiful space however not what it used to be. We went to Petals & Pinecones on the 10.01.24 and waited 40mins for a pre-made toastie to be heated up out of the fridge and 1hr 20mins for two Creation shakes. Both looked nice however milkshake...was hot and tasteless. Very disappointing. There was only one other table of 6 people there and they were still getting their drinks that they ordered before us after we got our drinks. Was 4 staff member (2 in kitchen and 2 in front of house) so they were definitely not understaffed. My partner and I had both been to Petals about 6 years ago when they were in their old shop and it was amazing! Great staff, upbeat environment and great customer service and great coffee, drinks & food. It is definitely not that way anymore. I’m not sure if we got them on an off day however the town of Atherton was really busy and all other cafes were really busy so I’m thinking that since new management it operates like this all the time.More

Booked a high tea bridal shower at P & P. Was amazing. Loved the shabby chic decor. The tables were decorated beautifully. The food was plentiful and delicious. Punch was delicious and coffee excellent. Great service and atmosphere for this event. Highly recommend for a...a small group event. The price was very affordableMore

Great little cafe tucked away but worth seeking out. Cosy and comfy, great service and lovely menu. Best coffee in Atherton by far.

We visited 9 Sep, early morning (0945). Parking was easy and the cafe has plenty of tables and space for kids. We found the menus and took a seat at a table, after a short time i went to the counter to order. I stood...at the counter for 5 mins even though a member of staff had identified I was standing there, he continued to wipe the prep area down. Another staff member then identified i was waiting to order and informed me she would be with me soon. We ordered avo smash, coffee and a iced chocolate. The food was excellent, the best breakfast of the entire holiday; however, the coffee (latte) was close to the worst we had during the trip, it tasted like to milk had been over heated and the iced chocolate was just a chocolate milkshake with 4 ice cubes placed in the glass, it was very underwhelming.More

Been wanting to come here ever since I have heard of it and finally made it. Unfortunately I didnt try a creation jar, but the pumpkin waffles were delicious, as was the banana smoothie. The place was full (including a party behind curtains), but my...order came quickly and it seemed popular with locals. It was a little noisy, but that is just the nature of the space. Overall, a good visitMore

It's a couple of years since I visited Petals and Pinecones. It has now been taken over by new people. Used to be very special with delicious food. It's now dreadful...in fact my friend and I didn't bother to stay and eat....reason... dirty floor, dirty...dishes everywhere on tables and there were only two other tables occupied. Food menu cut right down. Never go back!More

Arrived with big expectations for food that missed filling even a quarter of those expectations, let alone my stomach. Waited over 45 minutes for a small toasted sandwich costing $10 that would meet size guidelines for a tapas plate. The pictures from social media falsely...advertise big food expectations. I was going to bring my family but I won’t make the trip now.More

I had an expectation from social media that this cafe was a place where ‘over the top’ was the norm and the interior was exceptional. I really looked forward to visiting. Imagine how underwhelmed I was when, after 15mins I received an average long black...with no crema. After a similar wait the $16 ‘Avo addict’ appeared, no serviette, the thinnest layer of avocado possible on two meagre and very thin, cold soggy pieces of sour dough. All this while looking at the dirty dishes of the previous occupants of the table (as all the other customers were). In fairness, the place was busy and the staff did warn in advance about the delay and apologised for the wait. No tables were cleared anywhere and as a result, it’s no surprise that furniture and lounge chairs are very soiled and sticky.More

Times aren’t as advertised. Arrived at 1:30pm for lunch and were told they close at 2pm and won’t be serving anything than drinks for pastries from the cabinet. They turned my friend and I away and a group of 7 in front of us. We...all walked across the road to Gallery 5 and had wonderful food and service. I used to travel with visitors to Atherton up to Petals and Pinecones for breakfast, brunch and lunch. But I’m very disappointed to travel 1.5hrs to be told they’re not serving lunch at 1:30pm. Next time I’ll be going straight to Gallery 5 great food, service and venue happy to accept anyway at 1:30pm.More

Travelled over 40min with a desire for a great breakfast in Atherton. This place looked great online! Was very disappointed to find that Petals and Pinecones was shut despite their website/Facebook saying was open. We tried to call ahead (line engaged).

The heavily sugar-biased menu is problematic for Type 2 Diabetics like me; strike 1. The vegetarian/vegan breakfast that I ordered, once the (canned!) black beans came out, was only notable for having a good non-dairy cheese ingredient, but even then, not much of that; strike...2. My wife's "Pancakes with Fresh Fruit" turned out to be commercial flapjacks topped with frozen berries (still not thawed) and canned whipped cream; strike 3. OUT!More

After finally locating this hole in the wall, initial impressions were lovely. Lots of people and good atmosphere. This initial impression quickly deteriorated. A series of disappointments ensued for the 5 food orders: - table hadn’t been wiped properly, sticky! - dirty serviettes still on...the table - “we’ve run out of avocado”, eliminated 3 vegan/veg options - burrito bowl came out first, not a bowl, rather a couple of filled grocery store soft taco bowls. Dish strangely came out in a takeaway plate - $10 vegan sandwiches had stodgy, premade vegan burgers, a smear of bbq sauce and 3 spinach leaves - maple and berry pancakes came out 4th, with a quick apology for the melting ice cream. Ice cream had turned the whole dish into soup so had clearly been sitting out for too long before it got to the table - the final dish (Superbowl) came out 3 minutes after the pancakes despite it being a premade salad. Added spinach amounted to 5 leaves poked in on top - bowls and plates were chipped We ate because we were very hungry but the lack of organisation, hospitality, professionalism and overpricing really disappointed! Wouldn’t return or recommend!!More

Easy. As I recall you can drive to the door and I don’t think there are any steps.
