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.

Young lady who waited on us was very nice and friendly and accommodating about my veggie alternative. Mexican toastie was way too salty. Tofu burrito was very under-seasoned. Not sure what the other items are like on the menu but given we were visiting the...area for the day, we're not likely to come back and try out other things.More

COVID has changed how food is served, I understand that...but it is not an excuse for what we experienced at this cafe. I ordered takeaway spicing pumpkin soup (with cheesy bread). It came in a square Chinese takeaway container that had 100ml of soup (literally...- I marked the container) occupying the bottom 1cm of the container. I voiced my disappointment at what had been served and was told "that is how we are doing it now". If i had ordered that soup in house I challenge them to find a bowl small enough to serve it in. It was so ridiculous i couldn't believe the staff member was justifying their position. She agreed to add more and after a lengthy wait, I walked away with an equally ridiculous amount of soup which they heated in the microwave in front of us. Cheesy bread was supermarket toast with that orange McDonalds type cheese melted on it. My partner ordered a pulled pork bun which had super pink pork in a stale bun - actually inedible. Awful food and awful experience.More

One of the few places open before 10am during the week. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. I was able to have a gluten free mains and cake with a delicious hot chocolate. I have been here before and it's always a lovely experience.

The staff of three were flat out when we came for early lunch. They brought us water, but no cutlery , but the food came reasonably quickly. The toasted sandwiches were inexpensive and delicious, but my vegie burger was problematic. It was creatively designed with...a spinach bun, fried onions, beetroot relish, salad, and a vegie patty, but there was a strange taste that I could not pin down.More

Popped in after the movies at Cameo for a late lunch. We were very impressed with both the service by a welcoming staff and good quality reasonably priced food. Had a side order of chips and they were as good as you can get. Coffee...had good flavour and served at the right temperature. RecommendMore

This was an amazing cafe that had an awesome menu, great portions and value for money. I had told my friend how great it was and took her there for lunch. I found it had changed hands and menu which was very disappointing. So much...so I took my friend somewhere else instead. This iconic cafe was famous for years for its food, service and quality for money. It was hard to get a table as it was always so busy. Now every time I go past it's almost empty. So sad why change what not broke.More

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch that has an excellent set menu along with tasty specials which vary according to the season or produce availability. Highly recommended for a quick well cooked, thoughtfully planned meal.
