Really enjoyed a late lunch here. Ordered several of the Meze options and they were lovely portions. Would have liked better service from the staff. Other then that great cafe!

Aside from the junkies queuing outside the pharmacy next door, this cafe had a nice feel. The menu was basic and anything considered meat seemed to be an extra with min $4 charge which was disappointing. Took a few minutes of standing at the counter waiting to pay and had to flag them down that I was there. I must... More

I ordered a Shakshuka and was served the dish with sausages inside. I complained saying that the dish originally does not have sausages in it. They were very rude and made me pay for it even though I could not eat it as I am vegetarian. I left hungry but I had had to pay.

Little place that is always good for brunch any day of the week. Great food and staff and the coffee is also great!

Terrible service, compensated only by the above-average quality of the coffee. Fortunately, local area is swimming in café options offering quality food/coffee AND attentive service.

I Went in. I Sat down. I Waited for about 5 minutes. No one served me. So I Got up and went to Envy instead. I'm pretty sure I'm not made out of glass.

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.
