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

Good coffee, fantastic vab, chic boho decor, good food. The service can be a bit long. Otherwise relaxing place

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.

Went for a coffee with my wife on Sunday morning and decided this time to bypass the very popular Cinque café (which was packed), and try the Armchair Collective again. Going back 12 months or so this place was never empty but today there was plenty of room for us out the front - should have been a warning sign... More

Love this place! Come fairly frequently. SEATING: Seating is not that comfortable which is kind of ironic given the name of the cafe :) The seats around the sides of the restaurant are fine but in the middle the bigger tables are uncomfortable. It can sometimes be hard to find a seat. It's usually pretty busy. FOOD: The food is... More
