Envy Cafe is the healthy alternative serving "real food" set in a homely environment where you will find old chairs and furniture from grandma's house :) We pride ourselves on serving local produce ensuring our customers receive the freshest ingredients. We even have a community garden which we are grateful to pass onto our customers. We look after our local farmers by sourcing local produce. Our coffee is free trade organic, our chicken, bacon and eggs are free range because we care. Service is number 1 priority for us because without our customers we would not be here. We spend quality time training our team to not only have the right skills though also have the right attitude :) Enjoy your

My friend and I both ordered Smashed Avo, it usually comes with a garnish of tomato, feta and some greenery with sourdough toast. We were served about two desert spoonsful of avocado with two slices of toast and a slither of lemon. We paid $14.00...each!!!! I asked the waitress whether they had forgotten the garnish. That's the way it is served. RIPPED OFF!More

Visited for breakfast and waited 40mins for breakfast. We kindly waited on the lounge for a table and watched as the waitress sorted a table for others, while we sat patiently on the lounge. Made a table for ourselves and watched while the outside table...got served breakfast before us, although they ordered 20mins after us. Breakfast consisted of overcooked hard as rocks 2x small rashes of bacon for $5, and the hardest crust encased sour dough toast that you couldn't cut through, let alone eat. Dare say we won't be eating at Envy again.More

Had breakfast here this morning and from the get go it was a great experience. I was a little ahead of the Saturday morning crowd but even so there were a few early birds like myself. I was welcomed by Lucia, a señorita with ties...back to Italy and a smile and personality to match. Service was great and the food excellent both in taste and presentation. As I sat there eating my meal the place began to fill up and under the Covid restrictions people were soon having to wait a short time to be seated. In these new circumstances my old habit of sitting writing blog posts has had to go by the wayside as tables are in short supply and if one lingers too long, others will miss out. It was interesting to watch the interactions with staff and patrons as the staff went through the difficult spiel asking people to wait for service. Most people were fine but there was the odd one that had not caught up with the new etiquette and were plainly grumpy. The staff were amazing at handling those upstanders with firmness and diplomacy. There are a few eateries in Cotton tree and this one is situated just along from the King Street area. Just far enough out of the way to be close yet not caught up with the maddening crowds. I have to give this place a high mark on both the food and the service. I’m sure that anyone taking a meal or coffee will not be disappointedMore

We've been here a few times for coffee, tea and cake and the food has always been great so we went for breakfast after SUPing at Cotton Tree. We ordered, next minute our coffees came and after a short wait our breakfasts and they were...full plates of delishness!! The place has an eclectic feel not to everyones taste but worth giving it a go. Each time I go I say to my parents didn't you have that chair or cup. They cater for all with lactose, gluten free and vegetarian options.More

Wow,wow,wow. I am so impressed, I had the Chicken Caesar, it was by far the best I've ever had, generous and flavoursome. Prices were reasonable and the quality was high. Coupled with friendly, fast service, there was nothing to fault.
