Decent cafe

Very nice option for a coffee and scone on the Belmont Road. Decent prices, they don't take the mick like some others on the road. Service is good- recommended!

We called in for coffee on a dark, dank December afternoon, excited at our first foray into the area but found staff indifferent and lacking in engagement when asked what was available to have with coffee! I was particularly disappointed with the lacklustre welcome as my husband had just arrived from Canberra the previous day and this I had hoped... More

We found it inside Cafe Smart with its comfy sofas, appealing decor, awesome iron kettles, delicious cinammon scone and superb coffee. There are so many coffee shops on Belmont Rd but this has to be the best, especially at this time of the year....it has it all wrapped... More

I popped in here for breakfast one morning. The waitresses were so lovely, really friendly. I ordered porridge, cappuccino and tap water. The waitress told me she would bring it down which is always nice! The cappuccino came quickly and was well made. Tap water was ice cold which was appreciated. My cappucino was cold by the time my porridge... More
