Excellent lunch

Whenever we've popped in to Plunge, either for a sit-down lunch or take-away, we've encountered prompt, friendly service and received tasty, fresh meals. Coffee is good too!

I'm not sure what's happened here, but Plunge has changed and not for the better. The service is sloppy, quality has dropped and portion size has diminished. The owner isn't exactly the friendliest dude on the planet. A shame.

Great staff, friendly and welcoming. Great coffee, hot, great creme and a double shot tastes like a double shot should. Great food. Lamb kofta is fabulous. Highly recommended. Will be spreading the word.

I went to this café on a Sunday so granted they were busy. We were greeted by a lovely guy, very accommodating, who seated us. However the waiters that actually served us were uninterested and abrupt. We weren't given water when we arrived and when I asked for some it seemed like a chore for the waiter. ALL THAT ASIDE...

My local favourite with very good consistency in food & coffee. Their coffee is bold, thick & its distinct flavour. I love their ricotta pancake & zuchini fritter which both are done at best possible level any cafe would create. The owner & its staff are friendly. I found children & small babies were warmly welcomed too so great for... More

My local cafe but they still serve consistently good coffee & food with great service. Staff are generally friendly with smiles always. The owner Hashem is a nice guy too. Their breakfast food is healthy & yummy especially the ricotta pancakes. Consistently good so would recommend to anyone.

Really interesting lunch menu, including delicious falafels, and great coffee. Service is friendly and it is always pumping -which is a good sign.

Nice inner west cafe that offers single origin coffee for you to try. The menu is creative and fun. My boyfriend and I have been there quite a few times and tried the fish and chips, baked eggs with Turkish sausage, falafel, big breakfast, hamburger, which are all good. Can't complain anything. Service was nice, too.
