Great Lunch fare

While walking along Griffiths Street, Coolangatta at a few minutes before 11.00 am I noticed about thirty people grouped near the front door of the Hog's Breath Cafe. When the doors opened the people streamed in. A noticeboard advertised a variety of lunches for $9.95. I had been a frequent... read more

Whatever Hog's Breath and their management have told their waitstaff about sitting down on a chair to introduce yourself and take orders is seriously the worst idea ever! Its degrading, unprofessional and lazy! The music is too loud you cannot hear each other speak and they cannot hear you to listen to your order. Waitstaff could not remember when asked... More

Went here as a family of 5 and was very disappointed / frustrated. The service was ridiculously slow, waitresses not very bright and the steak was full of fat.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal here. I had a traditional steak, medium rare and it melted in the mouth. ( no need for dentures). Staff were attentive. Thank you Angel and the manager for a well rounded experience. A great feed in Coolangatta.

Eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. Staff are very friendly and dedicated. Never waiting to be seated for menu ordering or for drinks. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Coolangatta.

The staff tried very hard when we arrived but that wore off.food was tasty. Felt cheated on the calamari starter as there was 3x more lettuce than calamari. The main took a loooong time to arrive. Won't be back.

Had a great meal with the family, Service was outstanding by 'Noodles' really made the evening her menu knowledge was very good, kept us up to date on the progress of our meals, great follow up during meal after dinning. The steak were cooked as required, meals were large. Atmosphere can be hectic but fun. I would recommend a visit
