food is great

food is great, but place always feels like it could do with a really good clean. Tables not wiped down near enough, tons of flys inside over your food, and everything just feels a bit sticky and dirty. Shame, because the staff are great, and the food is consistently good. Love the position, it has... read more

Ok so many locals think this place rocks. Why I am not sure, you don't get real cutlery. Everything comes on recycled cardboard. Great if it's take away but really , this is in now, a wooden fork and knife that doesn't work. Great coffee yes, average food. Must be a faze people get into. Average service as you have... More

We didn't get a chance to eat here, but the food looked great. Really nice setting, and lovely little set up inside. Was busy pretty much every time we went passed, especially on the weekend. The cycle up the hill to get there was a challenge, but the coffee is well worth the effort!

We had a very good breakfast at the Top Shop. The Breakfast Burger or the Banana on the quinoa bun combined with a coffe/tea and a juice is all you need for a good start into the day. It was quite busy but we got a table outside. Nice place to hang out and read one of the magazines you'll... More

Have been twice now. Simple food, done well (at least the burgers and chips are!). Service is pretty efficient, seating is limited - if you come in a group (we had eight) you will end up sitting outside on the grass or curb somewhere. Always bustling for a small shop. This is not a 'book ahead' type place.

Beautiful fresh ingredients, loved what we ordered. Steak sandwich fell apart at first bite. Mission burger was perfectly roasted chicken and tasty coleslaw. Would definitely return.

So good that we took a detour to go here on our way from Sydney to the Gold Coast! One of the best places to enjoy brunch and enjoy sitting and relaxing on the grass.

We had a beef burger and haloumi burger- both on boring, untoasted white bread rolls with minimal filling. I have to agree with another reviewer- the big reputation this place has is far better than the food served. Won't be going back.
