Difficult to choose in Nelson Bay. So much choice. we decided on hogs breath because we didn't know the chain. Very friendly and funny staff. Nice atmosphere. Food was good! Nice no nonsense burger!

Sat here for 40 minutes before we were served. Had to get our own cold water as no one brought anything to us. We were here as a large group, so they would have noticed us. We're here for well over and hour and a half before our meal showed up. The restaurant was not busy at all. Very poor... More

Lunch time, we order two salads, they come with fresh ingredients, carrots, apples,rocket salad,mozzarella and avocado. Unfortunately the dressing was tasteless. Service was friendly and quick. But the tables inside were sticky to touch which was not very inviting.

Went here as an option for dinner as we were hungry and wanted hearty food. Started off well with a nice waitress- Isabelle. Ordered and food came fairly quick after around 15mins. Shame that the food was just tasteless, I had the pan- fried prawns which were the nicest thing. The side ceasar salad was greasy with hardly any dressing... More

Sure, I'm a Frequent Diner and that alone should tell you that the food is pretty good, you get your food the way you want it, the price is quite reasonable and the desserts are nice too. Although if they bring back the Banoffee Pie I will be delighted. Great Steaks and Tasty Chicken and enough vegetarian options as well.... More

We visited Hog's Breath Cafe while staying in Nelson Bay, it was one of the few places that stayed open late. When we walked in, we were greeted by a staff member who stared at us blankly until we asked for a table. She seemed annoyed that we took her away from the conversation she was having with a friend,... More
