We were recommended this restaurant by family members whom are regulars for breakfast. We dined at Armchair Collective at lunch time due to us being in the area. Location - At the bottom of Darley Road just near Mona Vale Beach. On a busy summer weekend I would imagine parking to be difficult but today there were plenty available. Food... More

Nice location, although parking can be a bit challenging to find if you go during peak hours. Good service and the food tastes great!! Love the boards that the food is brought out on, as it adds a unique twist. The food is a bit pricey but that's expected from a well known/popular cafe. The juice 'jugs' are quite generous,... More

This place has changed hands judging by the downfall in their previously cool furniture... Still good coffee though and efficient friendly staff that has become rare around the beaches in previous years...

Great little café in fantastic location next to Mona Vale Beach. Have eaten lunch and breakfast here, and also coffee’s on various occasions the coffee has always been great and very well made. The Muffins too always seem fresh and are super tasty and you can’t seem to get them in the afternoon so assume they sell out! Lunch and... More

The first thing to say is that the food here is amazing. It's fresh and flavourful and the portions are a good size. What I don't like about it is, firstly, that the wait time can be extremely long and, secondly, that the tables are so crammed together that you feel hemmed in and claustrophobic. Every five seconds someone is... More

Wanted a nice meal with chips , and was pleasantly surprised to have a yummy meal salmon burger with awesome chips. Staff very friendly, and love the upbeat happy feel to the place. The country homewares for sale were nice to browse at. Finished off with a brilliant coffee to die for. Thanks :)

I have eaten many times at this great cafe in Mona Vale. I love the vibe, the food but most of all the coffee. The staff are great fun, lively and friendly and wandering around the fabulous homewares afterwards is always very tempting. Sometimes they are very busy but it is worth the wait for sure.

This café hits the spot for this beachside suburb. Its a mixture of homewares (which for me do not quite hit the spot...but it's a neat addition to the standard café) and a good quality café. The servings are a good size, the prices reasonable and the speed of service was on the money. I thought the staff were pretty... More
