Sunday Breakfast

This is a great location, its a shame the service doesn't match it. no nerd to book if you get in early before 9am. Otherwise you will need to book if you don't want to wait. 30+ minutes Service can be a little slow, there is almost no interaction with the staff. Menu has a good selection, not... read more

I came here for brunch on a beautiful Sunday morning and had great expectations - beautiful view, good atmosphere and lots of people dining. We needed to wait half an hour for a table as we didn't make a reservation and this was definitely reasonable considering we didn't book ahead. We went and ordered take away coffees while we waited.... More

We went to this café for a work lunch & I chose this place as the menu seemed interesting, tasy and creating but the food itself was incorrectly proportioned and bland! The vegetarian tasting plate was the most pathetic tasting plate I have ever had - consisted of courgettes, about 8 olives, a small dip and salad. I ordered the... More

Went for breakfast with friends;it wasn't particularly busy but the front desk lady was by far the rudest I have ever come across; from ignoring, to snapping, and yes, even a rolling of the eyes...even while we remained very friendly and smiling. Then the coffee orders were wrong; we just accepted them but there was no apology. The waitress was... More

This cafe is in a lovely location right on the Parramatta River with only parkland and water surrounding it. We were there for a weekday lunch. Good menu selection, reasonably priced, freshly cooked and good sized serving, table service was quick. The area around the cafe is great for kiddies and at weekends it would no doubt get very busy... More

We often stop at this cafe on the weekends when we are out cycling. The location is great and it is so nice dine alfresco by the river. The menu isn't that comprehensive, but all the food we have tried has been good. Staff are very polite and courteous, even when the place is really full.

At this beautiful setting on a magic summer evening we welcomed 60 guests to our birthday cocktail party. The space was perfect, the food was plentiful, delicious, a great variety, constantly served to our guests who commented on the quality and quantity of the food served. The staff were attentive and ensured guests had food and drinks. We found the... More

Given its name and area history there is not much attention given to capitalising on an armoury theme. The camouflage covering over the outdoor area just looks out of place; but it does provide great shade. The food was OK. I had a beetroot salad which was very good but my friends seafood and the chips just average. Coffee was... More

Lovely cafe overlooking Parramatta River at Olympic Park. Its int he park lands where there are bikes to hire and segway tours and a bird hut and sporting grounds. Food was cafe style - $13 for steak roll, $10 for a ham wrap. There is a surcharge on a Sunday to be noted.
