The crab burger was great

Called in for lunch and enjoyed our chocolate milkshakes ( still prefer my milkshake in old fashioned tin container) . 2 of the 4 had the crab burgers and thought they were great! The others enjoyed a chicken salad and mushroom bruschetta.

Armchair Collective is a curious restaurant, with dining tables scattered through a shop selling an eclectic range of home decorator items. Three of us rang to make a booking and we were assured that it was BYO. We were shown to our table and the three of us were all going to order the flathead fillets with chips and salad... More

Three out of four of us ordered the soft shell crab burger, it was really not nice, very "fishy" with the whole crab , legs and all on a roll. Fish and chips was very oily as well. Smoothies were good.

This is a lovely spot and very nice shop. However, our party of four all ordered the armchair salad and it was a very poor choice. I'm not sure if we hit a bad day but all four of us were extremely disappointed. It was a plate of spinach leaves, a few canned beet root chunks and soggy pumpkin. I... More

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 strolled in,... 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.
