“Fab, quirky and great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I recently went for a late breakafast with my husband, never been before but it was well recommended. The furniture is mis matched, the front door leads you to believe that you are entering somones house as opposed to a restaurant, but when you are inside, absolutely brilliant.
Warm, with really cool music playing, a fantastic selection of breakfast and lunch options which run all day, lovely coffee, teas, milk shakes and the staff are really friendly and helpful and let you take your time.Great veggie selection as well, home made cakes,did not try as too full after breakfast.A little gem of a place, don't be put off by the outside, get in and enjoy. I did.

“Amazing place great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Another little jewel in Newcastle, if there is a queue out the door down the road, wait in it.. The pancakes are the best, the breakfasts are my favourite...
Live Jazz on the evenings, fab food whilst listening to great music, in a warm welcoming sweet place..

“Brilliant! Never had a bad meal here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Been here at least 15-20 times over the past couple of years, never had a bad meal. Lots of choice for vegetarians, the breakfasts are great with lots of choice, imaginative menu, great coffee (hazelnut latte), good prices, service is always great even when busy. Worth the queue at busy times! Brought friends here several times from all over the country and they were very impressed and can't wait to come back.

“HANGOVER CURE HEAVEN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

One of my first experiences at the Butterfly Cabinet was amazing. I had the 'Ron Burgendy' meal. It was the best burger I have eaten in my life. I am a fan of good burgers, I asked the waitress to compliment the chef. I have never looked back - after sampling many meals from the menu I am never disappointed. Always regular customers with my friends, girlfriend and even my parents adored it. The staff are excellent, the atmosphere is quirky and homely. I would recommend this spot to any new comers to Newcastle as a sample of the city's charm.

“Improved since last visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place is always mega busy, which is probably because the food is pretty good for the price, however the service isn't always there to match.
Visited for a late brekkie with a friend and both enjoyed the food, but service with a smile wouldn't have gone a miss. Tables could have done with a clean too and whole place looks a little grubby.
