I noticed that the original owner is back to help out recently and things have perked up. The tables are cleaned regularly now which wasn't the... read more

I came in here today to order breakfast. I received a friendly greeting and honest answers to any questions I asked. I decided upon the eggs benedict which was $16.50, I had moderately high expectations for this price point. Unfortunately I was disappointed when I received a half stale burger bun covered in mushroom and spinach which I believed was... More

Don't bother-Chicken schnitzel is thigh chicken dark meat grissly. No shredded carrot in servers no coleslaw.. Uptown I've tried you again and sorry will not be returning. This iconic cafe has been ruined by cheapness and a lack of knowledge

Visited on a Thursday night with two young children. Vegetables & chips both looked and tasted about 3 weeks old, chips were inedible. Chicken dish was ok but not worth the money. Food standards have definitely dropped at this place. Service was ok.

This is one of my all time favourite cafés in Queanbeyan. I love to take my daughters there when I visit from the south coast. The food is always stunning. Coffee is always exceptional. The owner is an absolutely beautiful man who always greets you with a happy smile. He makes a great cup of coffee and my youngest daughter... More
