Dinner for 3

We ate downstairs. Service was average, Tables were sticky. Steak was chewy but pasta, chicken and entrées were lovely.

My husband and I visited Coffs Harbour. We decided to dine at our favourite food chain Hogs Breath Cafe. We were extremely disappointed, never in all our Hogs Breath experiences have we ever had a burnt, inedible steak, frozen carrots and un-forkable fries 👎☹ We were so shocked and embarrassed that we could not bring ourselves to complain in front...

After a long day travelling my partner and I decided to spend the night in Coffs Harbour. We were walking around the local eateries when we saw a hogs breath cafe. We have eaten numerous times at various hogs breath locations, so we thought we would go with a brand we knew and trusted. Unfortunately that trust has been compromised.... More

The food here is disgusting. My chicken was so burnt it was sharp. So overpriced for what you get. Staff are really rude waited to be seated for 10 minutes as no one was at front counter couldn't find anyone to pay my bill. Horrible experience has put me off hogs breath all together

Meal was not good at all. Chicken was so tough. We weren't given knives and forks had to go find someone to ask for them.. Our table had no salt n pepper. The attitude of waitresses was one of " I hate my job, I'm only here to get paid so hurry up and pay and leave so I can... More

We've been to Hoggies all over Australia so we have a lot to compare these guys to. This was the worst Hoggies we've seen. After a curt, rude and dismissive greeting we were ushered to a table in the middle of a stifling hot and humid dinning room with a large air conditioner above our heads that was turned off... More

A steak that was mostly fat and grissle and a terrible reheated mushroom sauce, fries that were cold. Worst was it was $30+ for the meal. Go anywhere else, it can't be worse.

Have been a few times to this Hogs Breath franchise and always walk away happy and full to the gills. Very attentive and lovely staff and reliable fare. Easy going atmosphere which suits a lazy afternoon or early dinner.

We've been here before but today the staff seem like they've been shot before starting work. The ceaser salad with extra avocado was like the chef couldn't be bothered to attend presentation class with rough chunks of avocado instead of nicely slicing it. The egg was sliced but all in 1 clump and the service attendance at the table would... More
