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

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
