My stepdaughter took my husband to lunch here and he came back raving about Essen. Last night I got taken there for dinner. Yes, I AM NOW RAVING ABOUT IT.... More

Meeting friends for brunch. Booked a table for eight. Reservation staff cheerful. Not sure what to expect from this restaurant on Queen St. Not in a mall or residential area. I had The Lot for $15 eggs, turkish toast, tomato, bacon, hash brown and mushrooms. Substantial serving, well cooked. Others had raisin toast, cinnamon toast, turkish toast and jam. Coffee... More

Walked in to a beautiful garlic smell in the air which encouraged me to order pasta boscaola. I was very much looking forward to it, but I was very disappointed! The pasta was cheap dollar bag pasta and way over cooked! The sauce was runny and floury and just really bland! I have had way better from my home kitchen... More

Arrived to Essen for dinner, encouraged by TripAdvisor reviews. Must admit at first I thought we weren't in the right place, at least in the dark it looked and felt like a shopping centre shockingly yellow diner. Food was very good with huge portions none of us could finish. Although service was friendly, the waitresses seemed unfamiliar with the menu... More

We went to this cafe on for a saturday lunch after a recommendation from staff at a nearby store. The front appeared simple and clean. Inside, the decor was a bit dated but also clean. Food was cooked well, tasty and VERY well priced. We also did not have to wait too long before the food came out. The staff... More
