Lovely café at the Neutral Bay wharf where you can enjoy a meal while watching the kayakers and ferry commuters. Delicious breakfast of lamb mince with eggs and scrambled eggs on toast. Eggs done to perfection.

Ordered breakfast - food good as usual - coffee excellent. It really is a place to relax and a nice spot to chill!

Heard so many good things about T&L, have walked by many times (its close to home), and finally made it there with big brekkie on our minds First impressions were very good - really nice location and its cute; the cakes on display look amazing,...and there was an abundance of (very lovely) staff. The big breakfast at $26 is a hefty price compared to the Kirribilli cafes, and beans were $5 extra. This is fine if the love is shown on the plate, and its not here. The scrambled eggs lacked curd, shrivelled up in an overcooked, unappetizing heap, and the bacon ranged from overcooked to barely touched the pan. The toast tasted like cardboard and the beans seemed to be homebrand. The sausage was the best part, and the coffee was also good. Maybe the B team is cooking on a public holiday? Shame, I will go back to try the cake, but wont be testing the kitchen again.More

We haven’t been to Thelma and Louise for a couple of years now, but being a brilliant weekend weather wise, we had a booking outside overlooking the water, unfortunately we weren’t sure if we’d get in as we were 20 minutes early, but the staff...were very accommodating and sat us where our reserved table was. Our breakfast was very good and the coffees exceptional, definitely enjoyed ourselves and will be back more regularly than our last visit, thank you to the staff at Thelma and Louise.More

The deck hovers over the crystal clear waters of the bay. To our right is a mini cove with a sliver of sand and the ferry terminal on the other side. Sailing crafts bob on the gentle waters. Our convivial waitperson followed Covid-19 safe protocol...to the letter...app, tables cleansed, safe distanced before seating and her hands scrubbed after each procedure. There are jovial whispers emanating from the cafe interior which dissipate over the languid watery outlook. My smoked salmon salad arrived in concert with the ferry’s arrival. Great combination. The femme plumped for chicken salad And within seconds emitted those satisfied sounds of satisfaction. The experience is a positive 10/10, relaxing and gratifying.More

Hard to find good quality food with water views, till we found T&L. They were too busy and we were too hungry to wait so grabbed a quick cake & coffee and hoping to return for the delicious looking big breakfast plates that we saw...on other tables as we were leaving.More

Had an amazing big breakfast for $24. Freshly cooked and very generous. Great location literally sat on the harbour.

What a great find! Interesting menu and including a brunch/lunch happy hour! Menu perhaps a little too Mediterranean but the brunch servings are very generous. Coffee was good, location excellent and views spectacular!

Me and friends waited an hour and a half for our meals. No staff member came to chat to us about what was going on or apologised. The portions of meat were so small for the price- mains were close to $30 and we got...three small skewers of meat. We were then charged for the water which we refused to pay. There is also a surcharge on the weekend. Yes the location is great but service was terrible, wait was way too long and it’s overpriced.More

Personally I don't do functions but Thelma & Louise might. Give them a call. Don't bother if you proposed function is for more than about 25 people though - it's not the biggest restaurant
