Went for brekky and enjoyed the food but the coffee and the 50 minute wait for food was a joke. Been here before and the coffee is still horrible plain and boring fish river. The staff are very friendly and helpfull. Ash you need to change your blend.

My partner and I go here at least once a week, if not more! We love the menu and the staff. We can be in and out within 45 mins (just enough for our lunch break) . I recommend the green lantern juice and the egg white omelette or the pie of the day. This place never dissapoints!

This place looks good from afar.. But don't make the mistake of ordering from the menu because it is far far from good. I have eaten here on numerous occasions merely from the convenient location and wanting to give it another chance. No more. I have tried salt and pepper squid - fried to a crisp and inedible. Quiche special... More

The Venue Cafe is a hub of vibrant activity on the weekends whenever I have been there with friends or family. Coffee is generally good. The food can be a different matter. After a long wait I was disappointed. The pumpkin & red onion quiche with salad was not up to par. The pastry around the edge was browned, however... More

This restaurant has just changed the menu even though in my opinion they did not need to do so. The food is always hot, coffee is prepared in a superb manner. The customer service is great and as I frequent this restaurant I am pleasantly surprised that I am addressed by name and welcomed each time I visit.

Went there for a brunch with my sisters. Had previously had trouble at this venue and it did not fail to disappoint again today. We waited for 15 minutes for coffee that was burnt. We then waited another 15 minutes before returning to the counter to check on our order where the girl behind the register said "we are busy... More

We went for a Sunday breakfast and were surprised to see it relatively busy. The food was ok but the service and prices are a big let down. ALL food and drinks plopped down in front of the same person to pass to the others (there were only 4 of us) by a very unfriendly and mute waitress. We are... More

Had the pleasure of eating here twice on our recent trip to Bathurst. Among the many other options on their menu they have Vegemite sandwiches and fairy bread! Brilliant for our almost three year old grand daughter who was with us. They also do a great range of milkshakes and other drinks that we just for the kids. As a... More
