The friendly atmosphere really makes this place and our daughter loved the kids play area. I would recommend this café to any young family looking for a fun morning out. Good quality coffee too!

Three of us called in there late morning for coffee. Our order was taken immediately but we had to wait 20 minutes or so to get served although there were only four tables occupied. The coffee was very average, too much milk in our opinion. There were left-over breakfast dishes piled up for all to see - not a good... More

Called in on way home to Sydney for breakfast. Had Scrambled eggs - I had bacon and my wife ordered grilled tomato as extras. Her "extras" was one quarter of a piece of a small tomato - what a joke. Eggs themselves were overcooked and remarkably tasteless. Despite good reviews on the Beanhunter website the coffee was very average. I... More

we decided to stop in for breakfast on our way home from parkrun one Saturday morning. We ordered but it took a very long time for our food and coffee to come. When it finally did arrive it was very good food and great coffee. It was a perfect day for having a beautiful breakfast in the outdoors.

I haven't actually had food here yet but have been many times for coffee. The coffee is very good and the atmosphere is just lovely, among the trees and gardens. On a sunny day sitting outside is a must. Even on an overcast or rainy day a lovely place to visit as the decor is so inviting. All staff go... More

We came for a meal on our way home from the bay. Average food, average service, probably won't be back. Nice little gift shop on they way in. Good play ground if you have kids.

I drove up into the car park of spectrum. I thought that it was quite an unusual place to have a cafe, but as I stepped inside the door, I received a huge smile from the girl names Gemma in the girt shop. Everything looked so beautifully set out, and the gift shop was marvellous, I bought many gifts there,... More

I have now been to Spectrum a number of times. On my most recent visit just this week, they had updated the menu, including a new childrens menu, which looked great. I had the "Ballina Benedict" which I couldn't fault, along with my usual double shot latte. There was the added surprise of some live entertainment in the Gazebo, which... More
