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.

I love breakfast and love eating out , I could write a book about the varying degrees on mediocrity I have experienced especially recently in many parts of the country at breakfast. I’m not complicated, just want quality. This charming small restaurant delivers exceptional perfect fried eggs , crispy salty crunchy bacon on yummo sourdough with great coffee . My wife had a mountain of Avocado mint fennel feta side of crispy bacon . You know it’s good when your just making those hohhmmuum, slippttteemmmm noise right ?! Thanks 🙏 loved it Also nice staff and diners clearly homey and loved

We have family in the area who are fussy about their coffee and say OTB has the best in Maclean and I agree. Milk varieties are available also. We had an egg and bacon roll but the sauce was too spicy for us. However apart from that friendly service, good COVIDSafe practice.

Simple little cafe serving terrific food. The sticky pork belly is a must have and the Vietnamese chicken salad was delicious. Set on the Main Street of Maclean it was a lovely place for lunch

after being in the industry for well over a decade the only word that comes to mind when thinking of this quaint little cafe in the sleepy town of Maclean in is exquisite perhaps the most consistent establishment in the whole Clarence valley for both quality of service and quality of product i have never had an experience there that wasn’t outstanding in the time that they’ve been open and i doubt i ever will. I couldn’t think of a better place to recommend if i had a gun at my head. Don’t disappoint yourself by going somewhere else

Decided to visit McLean as we were driving to Sydney and hadn’t been for years. Walked past On the bite and were attracted by the happy customers. Service was friendly and efficient. Coffees, lattes, were excellent. The had a good depth of flavour, perfectly textured milk and were exactly the temperature we like. We shared one of the best avo smashes we’ve had. An additional plate came with us having to request.

Husband had Lamb Korma, I always order falafels, and daughter had roast pork in a white bun thing. Daughter said it was too sweet for her taste. We shared a chocolate brownie which was nice (and that coming from someone who does not normally like brownies). We would like to try the breakfast menu next time. It's an hour's drive so when we are more organised.

Surprised given other TA reviews. We rarely give poor reviews. Requested long black in a glass. Came in a cup and was Luke warm at best. When reported to barista / ? owner totally disinterested ! Other order for cappuccino extra hot and extra shot was good. This establishment is tired and grubby - do not go to the loo unless you have to.

Detoured off the highway and had the best breakfast of our trip. I had the shakshuka and hubby had the smoked ham hock baked beans, both were to die for. Coffee was also excellent. The little blonde order taking girl was especially helpful. Will definately be dropping in on our way back

Great coffee and best bacon and eggs I've had in a long time. Classic little country cafe. Not far off the freeway so try this little town instead of a petrol station.

Both breakfast and lunch at On the Bite is exceptional. The coffee is consistently great and Rob's Chai Latte to die for.
