I went here for breakfast the other day and absolutely loved it. Great coffee, friendly staff and amazing food, made by a chef who obviously loves the job! You can really see how the new owners have change the cafe for the better. Can't wait to come and try the new dinner menu.

I was torn. The coffee was like water from the kitchen sink in a cafe where the coffee cups are washed. Just bad. However, the salmon and spinach scrambled eggs were just divine. Small but for a tiny girl like myself it was great! I had breakfast there two years before and I don't remember it being that great. Maybe... More

I visited Coogee Cafe on a sunday for breakfast with my partner & our son. Very accommodating for families. I had the vegetarian breakfast and my partner had the eggs Benedict (my son had a chocolate milkshake). Meals came out really quick and were delicious and fresh! Will definitely be back.

Went there for breakfast at around 1 pm (they serve breakfast until 3 pm) / staff was friendly / food (e.g. bircher muesli) and drinks (fresh juices) are very tasty and of good quality

Excellent place for breakfast. Quinoa porridge with banana and cinnamon was something I'd not heard of before and it was great. Made with soya milk on request too. Lovely fresh fruit and veg juices. Coffee was delicious (small cups though) and the cooked options were also very tasty. Service was great, friendly and quick. Cost about AUS$50 for 2 juices,... More

Decent breakfasts & lunches served up here and depending on the day and barista, a very good coffee is made too. Yes, they have had problems in the past with 'attitude' from some staff however since the new owners took over recently that problem has been attended to. The cafe needs a facelift no doubt however if they continue to... More

Like most places in Coogee it was terribly hip. Coffee was good as was my gluten free breakfast, which I really enjoyed: gluten free bread with strawberries and peanuts. Quite a different option and one that's to be commended! Far more interesting and tasty than the usual gluten free fare. I had a stroller and that got a bit awkward... More

Once I had finally managed to attract a waitress’s attention (hiding in the doorway with menus but didn’t seem brave enough to venture to new customers arriving at the pavement tables), my coffee and food were delivered in good time and were both excellent. Service itself was lacking and had to request water as did a couple at a neighbouring... More

I went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning, I had been running up and down Coogee Bay Road for the previous week, and wanted to see what was offer in one of the many cafes which line the Coogee end of the road. I tried Coogee Cafe as it was busy but not too busy. The food here is... More

Extremely good cafe in the heart of coogee! I come here at least once a week for the great service, great food, and great coffee.. Atmosphere and the outdoor seating is also a big bonus! Absolutely love it. Try it you wont regret it!
