Great breakfast, nice atmosphere!

Came here before to have a breakfast with my best friends, nice little restaurant, great food and service! The only tricky part is to find the parking! Sure we'll come again sometime!

Small but perfectly formed, this little restaurant is so much better than its name. Actually, the name's kind of fun. But although baked potatoes are their specialty they also do a fantastic breakfast. I went for the "Mad Pan Brekkie" - served in a skillet, you get nicely spicy boston beans, two deliciously meaty sausages, a perfectly poached egg, a... More

I have only ever had the spuds here. The rest of the menu looks great too but I keep having the spuds. It is a great little cafe to grab lunch. Nothing too fancy. Just a filling meal. $15 is quite expensive for a potato but this is Surrey Hills after all. A great lunch in winter.

An early morning Saturday random find by my husband. My food was delicious ...the Boston beans were delish! The servings were large and well presented, the coffees perfect. Last minute juice recommendation by the manager refreshed the palate. Wonderful place in the busy Surry Hills area!

Love coming here on a Sunday morning. The Irish breakfast is so good. The menu in general looks fantastic and I always mean to get something else! It's renowned for its good food and hard to get a table. The owner and all the staff are great- so efficient. Breakfast is a little pricey when you include all your drinks... More

A favourite Sydney cafe for us, especially for my spud-loving partner. We've tried many of their breakfast and lunch offerings. Our all time favourites are the Potato skin nachos and the spud stack. The staff are always friendly and helpful, even when very busy.

Mad Spuds cafe has recently opened it's doors for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. After reading the glowing breakfast and lunch reviews we thought we should give it a try. We had the most fantastic dinner; lovingly prepared meals, beautifully plated, huge portions and finger-lickin' good. The panna cotta is to die for, I could eat it all day... More

my favorite brunch spot in Sydney. The cafe feels very warm and welcoming, could be a little crowed on the weekend but the wait is worthwhile!

Came here almost every weekend for breakfast/lunch for the last 3 years while living in Sydney. The food is delicious and staff are so nice, especially Danny who was always really chatty and friendly. Love this place!
