Went for breakfast this morning and will never return. Arguable quality, the muffin was probably old and the coffee burned. My partner wasn't happy either with his carrot cake and coffee. Never again!

I am sorry that you had a bad experience with us today - what you describe is certainly not the standard that you should expect from us. We will speak to the team who served you this morning and give them further training. Next time you are in Richmond, we would like to offer you a breakfast on the house,... More

Enjoyed a quick lunch here that was very enjoyable. We had a made-to-order sandwich, and pie with mash .. both delicious. There is a choice of eat-in or takeaway. As it was lunchtime we only just got a table. Service was friendly and efficient.

First time visit the cafe in a Saturday afternoon, it's not busy and plenty of seats. The cafe is clean and staff are friendly. About the food, I'd say this cafe provide reasonable choice of sandwiches and it tastes good, but I don't think it is something very special.

I've had probably 40 odd sandwiches here and almost if not all been good or very good. Sandwiches made in front of you and whilst not a wrap guy the meatball one I had and the lamb were good. Nothings stale or a few days old. Gets crowded during lunch hours but many hours plenty of time and space to... More

The quality of food at Cooks & Garcia really stands out,as does the speedy service from it's polite and well presented staff. A vast variety of premium fresh ingredients and delightful artisan breads is available daily. The pricing structure doesn't punish you for indulging in extras and adds ons- a breath of fresh air in a generally insultingly greedy industry!... More

Great service, lovely food and unbelievable prices. The red velvet cake is the best I've ever had. Lovely staff who are very helpful when helping to decide what to eat. The location is convenient and you can take away as well so this is a perfect place to stop by and pick up your morning coffee!
