Just off busy Military Road you will find this busy, buzzy cafe with both outdoor & indoor seating full of satisfied looking customers whether they are having a great coffee & smashed avo on toast or a more decadent glass of wine & hearty Bombay chicken pie. Everything looks delicious & mouth wateringly tempting so it was difficult to decide... More

Placed in a noisy, fuel smell busy road, with junior staff untrained, unprepared and incompetent. I clearly asked for a kids' chicken burger for my 4 years old compańion and got a super spicy chicken that nearly burnt her mouth. How on earth can you bring such a rubbish to a kid. Not one expressed any sorry and instead insistence... More

Located just off Mosman Village this cafe is popular with the locals and is a great spot for breakfast or lunch. There is indoor and outdoor seating but generally just grab a spot where you can! If you are indoors you will most certainly notice the striking light feature made up of colourful mismatched light fittings and outside you get... More

Mosman Village is abuzz with people on the weekend having been out for a walk with their dogs or families after their children's sporting match. Turn off the main strip into Avenue Road to this cafe and you won't be disappointed. Outside seating and a number of tables and couches inside. We sat in the corner of this cafe and... More

An ideal location for a coffee shop with a lovely atmosphere. The food is very good with generous helpings however the lack of service lets this cafe down. The staff are friendly so it could be just a matter of changing the format or improving the training given. The staff need to be better equipped to take orders and shown... More

Springtime in Sydney is the perfect excuse to try out a new suburb to explore, so I venture out to Avenue Rd café in Mosman to try their new classic menu with an Asian twist.The BBQ Duck Crepes are a house favourite and irresistible for my bf being his favourite meat. The crepes are jam packed with tasty shredded duck... More

When you think of a duck wrap you normally refer to the small wraps generally found in Chinese restaurants, made Peking style. That's why we just had to try this option, to see how Avenue Road Cafe went about serving this dish. It was very different, it had all the elements of a Peking Duck pancake such as the hoisin...

This homely space with whitewashed walls, fringing banquettes and quirky collection of art deco pendant lights has a hint of understated celebrity about it. As the name suggests, it is located on Avenue Road, home to some wonderful exemplars of Federation architecture, and the first proper road to be constructed in Mosman back in 1860. The pavement tables provide a... More
