Disappointed

Have been here many times and has been amazing however they sold a great business. Service was incredibly slow and we waited for 1/2 hour for our drinks and then one hour for our lunch. Yes it was busy. Food was average and the staff were friendly.

Visited for lunch late one weekday morning, almost midday. Waitress seemed surprised that we didn't want breakfast but finally supplied lunch menu. Food (burgers and fish) was very good; the made-on-premises apple juice was distinctively excellent and nothing like commercial apple juice. We had vouchers which were good value, although the regular prices seemed high for what is basically an... More

We visited the Thyme Square Restaurant this evening. We had an online voucher for a 3 course meal for 4 people. The meals were absolutely delicious and we were very impressed with the quality of food. The staff were friendly but were perhaps under staffed as we did wait 45 minutes for our entree, 30 minutes for our main and... More

Went to this restaurant last night after buying a voucher online. Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Lovely people greeted us. Had a shared mezze plate entrée which was great and a bottle of lovely red. Then had chicken avocado with cheese and a chocolate lava cake. Food was fresh and perfectly cooked. I really enjoyed the food, and... More

Went to this restaurant with a voucher for entree, main and dessert. The food was fine and the wine provided was nice. Unfortunately the service was terrible. The manager/owner did not smile the whole night. He was extremely unfriendly and rude. He rushed us through our mains and asked us 3 times to order our dessert. I had to forcefully... More

We have dined at this restaurant many times since it opened some time ago, and always enjoyed it. However, when we arrived for a dinner-for-two recently, we wondered why it was not as busy as we anticipated. The first hint was the unsmiling reception and order-taking, but the real reason became apparent when the first dish arrived! We have had... More

I enjoyed the wagyu beef burger with chips. The beef was not top quality and it was missing beetroot but overall was a decent meal. My partner had the club sandwich which looked nice and was of reasonable quality.

I have been here a few time service is always good, coffee is amazing and the food is very consistent. Mango smoothies here are the best.

Recently taken over by previous owners of the coffee club Westfield Hornsby. Service was great, staff friendly and polite. Coffee was great too!

Went to this cafe for breakfast and the waitress brought us menu and cups after we sat down. I can tell the glasses were not cleaned properly since I can see small bits of green salads pieces sticking inside the glasses. I ordered Spanish omelette and my gf wants the omelette with ham, spinach and mushroom. The waitress confirmed with... More
