We had a really nice meal here, the brunch was tasty and fresh and the juices were great. Service was friendly and atmosphere/location was fab.

We stopped by for a quick breakfast & that's what we got. Service was good throughout & the food came out quick. I had a version of a BLT & it was big & tasty. I heard the burger was good & the toast was also delicious. An average place but the service took it up a notch.

What is wrong with this place? Probably they try to make everything in house and selling them in 2 weeks time, their price is not cheap, this is probably the cafe has biggest selection of cakes in balmain but not fresh, we want home made and fresh

This cafe is a favourite of ours. It's a great place for coffee and cake or a tasty home-cooked lunch. This time we each had the Berlin Burger...home-made beef patty, caramelised onion, bacon, cheese, sauce served on toasted Turkish bread, fries & salad. The servings were very generous & represented good value...certainly couldn't fit in dessert!

Came here three times for lunch during a week's stay in Balmain, enjoying hearty, fresh and wholesome food (delicious sweetcorn fritters, good quinoa and scrambled eggs, excellent grilled steak sandwich and fries). As good as the lunch is, the baked goods are really tremendous -- we picked some up every day. Fresh, wholesome, indulgent, and very high quality. Best chocolate... More

I hadn't been to Cafe Berlin for over 20 years probably because so many cafes have sprung up in the intervening time which of course all had to be tried. I lunched there recently with some friends and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the buzz. I then took my husband and granddaughter in for breakfast a few days later, which... More

OMG the carrot cake is amazing and what do I do have iced coffee. Now I am sugared out, but well with it. Sit out side and face the street, look up and enjoy the beautiful architecture before you.

There are too many restaurants and coffee shops in Balmain that offer good fare and coffee with enough space to move, for this Cafe to compete. It is best to buy take away coffee and a choose a lovely cake and go sit in the nearby park under a tree.
