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

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.

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.

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.
