I live very close to Kelbys but was always weary of its "tired" appearance. Looking for a quick bite myself and a friend decided to have a quick breakfast here. What a surprise. The wait staff where quite attentive and took a coffee order as soon as we had taken a seat. The coffee was really good. My friend had... More

I honestly cannot tell you how glad I am to have found this place. The food is interesting and quality, and I love the house made baked beans and grilled tomatoes. Delish. But what had me coming back time and time again wasn't the smiles and delicious food. It was the coffee. Honestly HANDS DOWN the best coffee I have... More

Me and my partner decided to have breakfast here once. The waitress had poor social skills. She asked us what we were having as we were still deciding, then raised her voice and asked us again (by the way, she ended up getting the orders completely wrong). Then me and my partner had to wait 20 minutes just for his... More

After getting many recommendations for this breakfast location we gave it a try during our stay in marrickville. The coffee and the fresh juices were really good. Unfortunately this was not the case for the location and the food itself. The banana bread, the porridge and the fruits with joghurt were not very tasty. The quality was more like in... More

We had a great breakfast at Kelbys at Marrickville - my husband had a Big Breakfast and it was big. I had an Egyptian breakfast- sweet potato,cheese, eggs and a great nut mix on toast. The coffee was great and the staff was friendly and service prompt. I will be going back.
