Great venue, unpredictable food quality.

We like to breakfast here on weekends. Great for walking the dogs and our 2 year old to play. The food and coffee however is variable. It can be very good. It is usually average. Today it was inedible, prompting this review. Overdone eggs, overdone dry bacon on what appear to be pre prepared buns... read more

Had a lovely brunch at the Armory. Sitting inside watching the river cats go up & down Parramatta River. Food yummy & the staff pleasant. The do have out door seating which is good on a nice day as the only have a light cover over the tables. They do cater for children.

Perfect location. Previous visits were MUCH more pleasurable although EVERY visit I have noted the poor organisation. We ordered takeaway coffee and breakfast. First coffee far too hot and burnt flavour - replacement coffee a better temp but still tasted burnt frown emoticon The food was very slow to come out and the quality so poor that I could not...

Take the Parramatta ferry from Sydney, get off at the Olympic Park and walk 1 mile to this place, right by the river. Great dishes, the best calamari I have ever had, good seafood, to simple omelettes. The views of the river are fab, and the staff were welcoming and very helpful. This is worth the ferry ride.

Went to the little take away part of this café. Had a sandwich which was like eating pure salt. Then had a drink to wash it down. Can was filthy so asked for a paper cup. Was not allowed a paper cup as they have limited number. Also not good value for money.

Stumbled across this gem after staying at Olympic Park. Beautiful location for Sunday breakfast. We all enjoyed our dishes, especially the corn and zucchini fritters with poached eggs. Will definitely return.

Visited this morning (still here!) Wide menu with all day breakfast. Enjoyed the zucchini and corn cakes with poached eggs. Eggs were great. Also the vege ciabatta which was good. Nice setting, cool breeze off the river. Be aware of parking though. Staff were more than impressive. Super helpful, friendly and patient with fellow patrons. Special mention to Lucy and... More

Have been a regular here for years but it seems the general consensus by the staff here is, that it's either their way or the highway. Rude. Abrupt. Obnoxious. If things are on the menu, one would expect it can be ordered. Nope. Not here. You're not allowed to ask questions. You become public enemy #1. Coffee is great. Location... More
