Big breakfast, bottomless coffee

Always a good meal, big size breakfasts and bottomless coffee! Not much you could ever ask for. Friendly staff, would always recommend to make a booking!

We found the service at Drexels to be a bit slow and confused. I asked for dairy free food, but this somehow turned into Gluten free too. The breakfast was quite oily too. However the waitress was very friendly, and the soy hot chocolate was delicious...

The meals were tasty and of large proportion. We had the Mediterranean omelet which was delicious and the sweet treat which was pancakes with fruit. Coffee and juice was also good. Book to ensure a seat even on a Tuesday morning it was busy.

When they say it's an American restaurant, they mean it! Portion sizes out of control! Taste levels to the max. Fluffy pancakes with plenty of maple syrup. Eggs and bacon any way to you want them. If heaven is a place on earth it would be similar to Drexels.

Drexel's provides American hospitality at its finest. We had a lovely waitress who I just wish I could remember the name of as she needs to be acknowledged, but alas! Bottomless coffee is always sure to be a hit in the early hours especially when paired with Drexel's reasonable prices

We really enjoy brunch at Drexels. It has a busy but comfortable ambiance. It pays to book as there is always a queue of people waiting to partake in the breakfast menu. The menu caters to all desires and I personally recommend the Drexels Special or the Farmers Breakfast. Bottomless coffee will quench your caffeine fix. We will undoubtedly return... More

I was so lucky to get a table for 3 for brunch/lunch on the same day and I have to say it was amazing! From the burger to the enchilada and pancakes and poached eggs with bacon. MASSIVE portions. The pancakes were huge and exactly how they should be. The only let down was the housemade hashbrown which lacked of... More

This is an awesome place to have breakfast. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. There may be a bit of a wait so best to book first. The food is outstanding and well worth the money. The amenities were also very clean.
