Usually eat at Next for breakfast and lunch - went with a group of friends for dinner recently. Food good, service is great. I had lasagne - was not as rich as I would have liked - but really enjoyed prawn entree and lemon cake desert. If you go for breakfasts totally recommend the baked eggs.

I recently had breakfast here with a large group. The service was efficient and friendly. I chose the vegetarian breakfast which had a very generous serving of grilled haloumi and tomatoes, wilted spinach and fried mushrooms with a lovely piece of sourdough toast. It was really delicious. The coffee was excellent as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

This cafe is always clean. The staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is seriously yum and they now offer a Friday rustic Italian option which very very good. But what really makes this place stand out is their Genovese coffee, an absolute stand out.

What a great menu choice. The house speciality breakfast in a pan with chorizo and eggs is fantastic. A nice atmosphere inside with great service. Would recommend a visit for trying something different from a breakfast menu.

My partner and I have eaten in the cafe before and the food was great! However, one morning we decided to get takeaway. 2 coffees, 2 bacon and egg rolls, (one being gluten free). For $24 I would expect to have way more than 1 slice of bacon!!! That was still squealing on the roll despite asking for crispy. I... More

Great food and really friendly service. This was our 'local' breakfast haunt when we stayed in Balmain for three weeks, we couldn't fault it. They have superb daily fruit juices and the breakfast paella is a treat. Well worth a visit.
