The only reason to visit here is if your a masochist who enjoys overpriced food served reluctantly by indifferent staff and a downright rude person on the register who'll take your cash only payment ("sorry for any inconvenience " says the untruthful sign taped to the cash register) Don't say you haven't been warned.

Food and service is reasonable but overpriced (average mains $18-$25) especially for the only real cafe in a Children's Hospital. Vittoria Coffee - $3.80 (small - takeaway). Surprised that it does not open nights or weekends to cater for number of parents and visitors who are around.

We were on a return visit to Westmead to attend clinic appointments and wanted a nice late breakfast. Sadly this time we were disappointed in the cooked breakfast from Bear Brasserie. It didn't rate as well with us this time as it once had on a number of previous visits. We were definitely not a fan of being presented with... More

I find that, considering parents are encouraged to take an active part in looking after their children, there is simply nowhere healthy and nourishing to eat.....I recently had to remain with my son there for five days, and by the end of it, not only had I spent an inordinate amount of money, but really had nothing fulfilling or healthy...

Convenient location and acceptable coffee. Kid sized milkshakes a bonus. Staff were none too friendly but maybe it had been a hard morning.

I've eaten here several times and although the food is okay (nothing special) I think the menu is overpriced. It's a convenient location. The customer service is a little rusty.

We would highly recommend this place to everyone! This became our first stop of a morning for the fabulous coffee. With a vast menu it was often hard to decide what to order. The meals were always most enjoyable. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient.

Whilst its a little pricey, the food and drinks here were good. Just wish it was open on weekends - as there is no quality food available on the weekend. Gets very busy during the week, but only had to wait 10-15 minutes each time.

As an employee of the Health Service we frequent this little gem a few times a week. Great coffee and toast for breakfast and all there other meals are also great. Always very accomodating when need to book a table for a meeting and coffee and also allow us to phone and order coffees to pick up. I have seen... More
