Good Breakfast Option - Dog Friendly

We have eaten here before, and know that this place offers a good selection of food, in a relaxed environment. The other plus is they allow you to bring your dog, and even offer "dog-sausages" for breakfast diners. A real plus, and a bonus for a dog that's already had it's breakfast. Food is... read more

Nice place, that we have eaten at before. A great place for the dogs, who got their own complimentary pots of sausages (yippee they say). We had two plated breakfasts of different sizes, which came with lots of lovely (salty) buttered toast, and there was marmalade readily available. The sausage and bacon was of excellent quality, unfortunately they appear to... More

We were warned by our hosts that if we visited here for breakfast to go early or go late, as Alf Resco's is extremely popular. Unfortunately we woke late and arrived 9.45am on a busy Saturday morning . .Our fail. Alf Resco's is a shabby mix of random old furniture cobbled together, with options to sit in the cozy dark...

Quality food and excellent service are what's on offer at Café Alf Resco. Just back from staying in their fabulously funky flat and enjoyed eating there nearly everyday. A very nice touch was the staff singing happy birthday to my husband, complete with a piece of cake with a candle. Always going the extra mile, that is the Café Alf... More

This cafe was highly recommended but we were very disappointed in the coffee which was average as was the pastry. It's like sitting in a very cramped space with people pushing past all the time to try and get to counter. Not a very relaxing coffee break!

Can't believe Alfs is 20 years old. As good today as the day it opened. Sat here waiting for my breakfast drinking an amazing latte extra shot. Still the best coffee in the area. Just live this place.....

Really good quality breakfast and friendly service. Very relaxed atmosphere. Seemed to have taken all of the most friendly and thoughtful young people in town and employed them as wait Staff. Never seen anything like it and just goes to show good people = success.

By far the best lunch we have had in the area, the platters are excellent. We didn't breakfast but they also looked fantastic.

We have used this cafe before, it is great the only problem is you may have to wait to get a seat if you arrive anytime it seems! We all had breakfast, 2 of us had the big Alf and the other 5 the regular Alf breakfasts, two rounds of toast per person were brought to the table slightly ahead... More

The outside looked interesting, inside too and the freshly made, generous portions and attentive service alfresco style made it a worthwhile visit.
