Nice place for a pit stop

Nice and varied menu makes it a great place to stop for a bite to eat during your shopping day. The food is nicely cooked and presented well. The menu has plenty of choices, many deviate from the usual cafe fare and the service is friendly. The decor is homey and sitting outside is a plus... read more

After recently moving to Marrickville I was trying out local cafes and ended up at Post cafe. This was quite a few months ago so it appeared they had just re-opened, I was assuming there was an overall re-vamp. However the staff seemed very unhappy to be there from the moment we walked in. I ordered a breakfast roll with... More

Best coffee and Steak sandwich in this corner of Inner West. Creative daily specials; healthy options are on generous offer as well as my Fav - steak sandwich. Outdoors seating available or indoors in a beautiful old building. Refurbished Post Office! If you are in the area to get a pork roll; I'd suggest to take away the pork roll... More

This place is kind of cool. I like their theme, the amount of seating and their build your own breakfast. I also like their snacks by the counter for taking away, its a nice touch. Food and drinks themselves weren't anything special, hence I probably wont eat there again, but I might pick up a take away coffee from time... More

Wanted to like this place but staff didn't have good attitude, coffee was barely lukewarm and won't be back. My meal was ok but friends didn't like any of theirs. Then was rushed out when finished to give someone else our table. After we left found loads of Asian style cafes in this area which seemed much better quality and... More

I really wanted to like the newly reopened and revamped Post Cafe. But the service is so extraordinarily (and consistently) appalling - that after actually giving it 3 visits since reopening - I won't be going again. Waiters completely scatty and cold - like I was disturbing them by ordering. Many mistakes (including forgetting the cheese on a takeaway cheese... More

The new place looks great, lots of staff unfortunately only one guy appeared friendly and interested in our dining experience. I ordered the steak with Kumera Gratin, asparagus spears and shitake mushroom jus. Steak was slightly overlooked and pretty tasteless, the Kumera gratin was slices of soggy overcooked sweet potato under the steak, thin slices of mushrooms on top of... More
