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.

One of the best breakfast’s I’ve had, ever!! Great eggs, heaps of bacon, hash brown and tomato. Plus 2 pieces of beautiful bread, cooked to perfection. Excellent coffee and juice. Staff were excellent and it was very well priced. You would not be disappointed if...you stopped here.More

Saw plenty of people in here so knew the food must be good. Extensive menu for a cafe but staff were friendly and had everything under control. We ordered sandwiches which were the biggest and most well filled we’ve ever had, but they came with...a serve of chips included! Prices were more than reasonable. This cafe has become our must visit eatery whenever we come to or through Emerald. Highly recommend 😍More

The breakfast at Thoe's is the best in the Central west. The food and coffee are great and the meal sizes are generous.

Hi John, Super busy last Saturday. New staff to train and just slammed with customers . Thanks for being so understanding and patient with the newbies we appreciate it heaps!

It was a busy morning but we managed to find a table inside in the hallway although there were tables outside. Service was good. We didn’t have to wait long for our breakfast - the Eggs Benny were really nice and we enjoyed our coffees...(although the waitress slopped them everywhere). You pay at the counter afterwards.More

Expected a good breakfast here after reading reviews however we must have visited on a bad day. Overcooked sausages, greasy cob loaf, kids pancakes were served up looking like a child had plated them. Not one person at our table finished their breakfast. Coffee and...mocha terrible.More

Hello there, so sorry you didn’t get a half serve, we are normally very accommodating. There must have been some miscommunication with our wait staff to us here in the kitchen. At the very least we are glad you enjoyed your juice.
