The food here is very nice and reasonably priced. The coffee is served in large mugs and made exactly the way I love my coffee. The staff are very friendly and helped us with recommendations. The menu does not however offer a large variety of food, but then again sometimes that can be a good thing. Located in a great... More

My friend and I often catch up and have lunch at Cafe Macquarie. The staff are always friendly and food is always nice. We usually have the $12 Toastie Tuesday special, but today we had the Chicken Snitzel burger which was really nice. Seriously the best snitzel burger with slaw that I have had in a long time (the slaw... More

We were driving through and checked Tripadvisor for breakfast places (daggy huh!). This Cafe came up and we were delighted with the food. There's nothing special about the decor or location and you might easily pass this place by. Don't. The breakfast we had was tasty, cooked well and served in an appealing way. My chili scrambled eggs were tasty... More

Having visited this establishment on a previous trip, we decided to stay with the known and were not disappointed. Fast efficient service and great food at a reasonable price. Was tempted by the "Monkey Business" milk shake(crushed Tim Tams, fresh banana and milk), but decided to save that for another time.
