Breakfast delight

Although we are locals it is very rare that we come here. Why? Great food, good vibe, nice ambiance, plenty to shop as well as being so close to home. So why hadn't I been back in almost 2 years despite living 1 street away..the crowds!! Usually this place is buzzing any time of day, but today we... read more

We spent a month in Australia and New Zealand. Our daughter is a student in Sydney. Armchair Collective was one of her top choices to take us and it is one of her favorite places. Being from America, food was challenging, especially feeding a 17 year old boy and a 20 year old with special needs. The food we ordered... More

The cappuccino is good. Service is prompt and good,staff attentive and smiling. Food is good and quite generous serves. we browsed around the housewares while waiting to be served. The café is quite busy so we were lucky to get a table (for 8) when we got there Location is good too, its close to Mona Vale beach.

Terrible service. We were the first ones there for breakfast. Our orders were taken, then half an hour later we had to ask for our food. When we asked could we have our food, the guy came back and said it wouldn't be long - how long does it take to poach eggs?? The girls out in the kitchen were... More

I received the most appalling customer service of all time and when feedback of my disappointment was given to management it was laughed about. I would highly recommend not to eat there and if you do you will leave feeling personally attacked.

Went again to Armchair recently but the service was awful, not enough staff. The terrific barista is no longer there and things weren't quite as good. The home wares are still interesting and fun to look at.

Exceptional food and cool homewares! Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Close to the beach with a relaxed vibe. Suit all ages, not just hipsters!

Ordered for two and everyone who ordered after us had received their food. Upon complaining they then brought out stone cold food to us and then took another 20mins to bring fresh food out. All in all, an our and a half to receive two breakfasts. Abysmal.

Went there for lunch with around 40 people. They coped very well with the number of people. The food was nice and decent servings. The only negative was the chairs which were not too comfortable. They have great home wares to browse through while waiting for the food to come out.
