“Looks & feels like a rundown McDonalds!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Competition is hot and strong in the cafe world and there is no place for slack rundown operations. Breakers Cafe & bar feels like it has lost its way. Is it a bar for drinks with mates? Is it a place to bring children to? Is it a family restaurant? Is it a pleasant spot for lunch with friends? In fact it does not specifically feel like any of these!

The food is largely fried comfort food with an emphasis on chips with everything, factory products like chicken nuggets, and a lack of presentation. While the service is quick and polite, the whole operation is second-class.

Would I go back? Would I recommend Breakers to friends? No on both accounts.

“Average Family Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Well located at the start of the Mt main strip. Great chess set outside. Pretty average family dining at an average price.

“OK for a quick meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Breakers is OK for a quick meal, and perhaps if you have younger children it would be ideal. Cheap meals, but sometimes price reflects quality.
