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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went to toast this morning as it looked busy, ordered toast, almond latte and a hot chocolate. I specifically asked for very little Vegemite, there was so much Vegemite it was not edible and went straight in the bin. Also received a milk latte but...the Ona coffee was nice. Hot chocolate was also far too sweet as it was more froth than milk and also went in the bin. The person serving did not seem over interested. Very disappointing experience.More

Hi Kaylenex, sounds like you had a really bad run! Totally not consistent with the product and service we are known for. Pity you weren't able to bring it to the manager's attention on the day, as we do always make good on our mistakes....More

After running at the Panboola Wetlands parkrun, we treated ourselves to breakfast at this delightful cafe in Pambula. Sitting on the outside veranda was pleasant and the service was very good. Our coffee and scrambled eggs were very good too. Good value for money.

We stopped here for morning tea on our way home, Friday 17 February 2023. We were attended to promptly and politely. Our coffee and cake were very tasty. The cafe is well set out with some outdoor seating, as well as indoor and take-away service....There was an interesting selection of tempting cakes etc.More

Been here twice now as I travelled through town, first time a year ago and second time this week. First time I had the poke bowl, which seems to no longer be on the menu. I found it to be sub-par, and I fed that...back to staff at the time. This week I ordered the Mexican salad and it was really delicious but again the meal was quite small. It also said it was served with quinoa but there was none, which might account for the smaller meal. Either way, the food is fresh and well presented, but it's not value for money. Staff have always been friendlyMore

I just bought a take-away Mexican bowl with Jackfruit! As much as it was tasty, for $25 the serving was ridiculously small. I understand food is expensive to make as is labour however this was absolutely highway robbery!! Literally about eight forkfuls of mixed lettuce,...corn, quinoa & Jackfruit, topped with a few corn chips. I’m wondering if the same size is served as dine in? I’m more than happy to pay $$$ for good food but shocked to think that price IS OK to charge for what I received. Again lovely but so disappointingly tiny and overpriced!!More

We go to Toast regularly with our dog for breakfast. Its a brilliant cafe, such an amazing little find in a small place like Pambula. We love the care the team take with the coffee and the food is always spot on. We had one...issue with a coffee once when we were there, and no questions asked the owner came and spoke to us, the coffee was remade and it was brilliant. Small businesses like this need to survive in small towns, particularly when they put the care and effort into delivering such high quality food and beverages. Well done to the Toast team. We love your cafe and will keep coming back for years to come.More
