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.

Try the coffee here. Highly recommended. Also, beautiful banana bread. Toasted, not stuck in a microwave like some places do.

Had a delicious breakfast at Coffee 22. Service was very quick and they went out of there way to meet dietary requirements of dairy free and low fodmap. I had the pancakes with banana and bacon, which were made specifically dairy free and a nice...really hot coffee. Very impressedMore

Food is good, freshly cooked and plenty of it. Menu was limited but would please a weary traveller. The place is warm and friendly but the background music was crap!

We called in for lunch, and had a delicious meal. We had trouble decided just which curry to order, so we both chose the mixed plate. Every bite was delicious! The service was prompt and friendly, the cafe was clean, the food and coffee excellent....And the toilets were scrupulously clean (very important). Highly recommend this cafe.More

We have been visiting Café 22 since knowing the previous owners. Hand sanitizer first then a warm welcome. Started with very good service then great coffee. The food is tasty & good value for money.

We chose this place because it was down a side street and we wanted to give them our business during these tough times. The coffee was the best we'd had and the bacon and egg on turkish was to die for. We're glad we added...the chill jam - absolute winner.More

My wife and I dropped in for lunch. I ordered a Beef Burger and chips. The beef patty was the worst I have had in Australia. Tough, bloody and no flavour. On par with a buffalo burger from Thailand in the old days. The service...was good if a little slow.More

I am sorry to hear that you meal was not up to Thailand standards. If the beef pattie was tough then it can be bloody as tough patties are normally overcooked. Bloody are normally when it is not cooked properly. So which one was it....More

We were happy when we saw GLuten Free outside the cafe. From there it just got worse. We both ordered side orders of mushrooms, baked beans and tomato. Instead of being charged for each side order, the owner charged us for main meals of buttered...mushrooms and spiced beans. The serving size was small as well! So we ended up paying about $12 more for the food than what we should have. When questioned about the bill she said we ordered main meals rather than sides. Shame...businesses don’t survive if they are run like that! Particularly in country towns!More

My husband and I drove past this coffee shop and their signage grab our eye. They had Gluten free options for people like me that are allergic to just about everything. On entering the cafe we were greeted by a lovely lady with a friendly...and warm smile. We asked about the gluten free and she went through all the options. As you can see by the heading we decided to share the pancakes. They came out on two plates. We didn’t ask for that so that was a pleasant surprise. This doesn’t normally happen in any coffee shop I can remember. So this meant that we both had our own maple syrup and cream. Plenty of both. The pancakes were blueberry and I am not kidding they were the best gluten free pancakes I have ever had. They were cooked to perfection. They cater for vegans, vegetarians and fuzzy eaters like me. What more could anyone ask for. The food was awesome and the customer service was friendly and efficient. I will definitely be telling all my friends about this little gem of a cafe.More

Twice this week my husband and I have eaten here. Both times I've had the mixed Indian plate, and my husband has had the burger (1st time), and today, the creamy prawns. We love the food - it's interesting, well done, the salad is very...fresh, and the service attentive, even when they were smashed by large groups, as it was today. It's a very eclectic menu, Indian, Australian, German, bistro. All sorts, all delicious. Thank you Seetal and staff - you're doing a great job.More
