I ventured into Fifi's in need of coffee. The décor and ambience is wonderful, the pressed metal ceiling and deep red wallpaper with the seating give a cosy very French meets Aussie feel. The waitress immediately asked if I wanted a table and I settled in with a cappuccino on the way. The coffee was excellent, a blend that is... More

Went here with a group of friends during Mardi Gras weekend. My dish (vegetarian breakfast) was pretty good in comparison to everyone else's order. The cook seems to get ever single other order wrong in some way. The owner then responded by telling us that he was going to sack the cook, which seemed unprofessional, and considering he took the...

On a particularly humid and blustery day, I ventured into Fifi Foveaux's for relief from the weather, some caffeine, and a place to do some writing. Nestled into a corner with a small table, once the place had filled up I soon discovered it would be difficult to leave, as all the tables had been pushed so closed together in... More

Stopped in for a quick Sunday breakfast, this place has a nice atmosphere and I had heard good reviews. Coffee arrived and was horrible, the coffee was burnt and one of the girls I was with complained and was told that we would not be charged for this. When our food (finally) arrived it was really good, except for the... More

After walking past another restaurant which a friend had recommended, I was lucky to run into this gem for Sunday brunch. While busy, they were able to seat every one right away. The prices are reasonable and the coffee was good. I got the hot cakes which was an excellent pancakes with ice cream and jam on the sides. Overall,... More

Great coffee and juices. I didn't eat but the food looked excellent at neighbouring tables. Staff were really friendly and actually seemed to enjoy being good hosts. Have given 4/5 for value only because this is Australia and prices everywhere are high.

The value for money here is great and the meals are delicious! The only downer is that they do not accept credit cards / eftpos, so bring cash!

The food was great and they were happy to accommodate our table of seven at late notice on a busy Sunday! The waiters got a little moody as they got busy which was the only down-side to an otherwise lovely breakfast in Surry Hills
