“Gooooood scone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Arranged to meet my wife for a quick bite, she had been before but this was my first and we both agreed before hand that we just wanted a scone and drink, she knew to go to Avoca! I can see how the place could be considered a nightmare for some due to the popularity and seating design (which was a first for me) but we on alright. Scones were fantastic, my wife got a plain and I got mixed berry & vanilla! Awesome!

Will deff be back!

“The Long Goodbye”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We love Avoca. It's our local.
Today was a disaster. We arrived at 3.05 and waited at the steps for 12 minutes (and it was not busy). When we were seated the four groups behind us in the queue all had there tables served and orders taken. We had been forgotten! We left.
We will be back as we like Avoca, but more attention to customer detail is needed.

“SUPERB! BRAVO AVOCA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I am never disappointed by the delights Avoca has to offer. A taste sensation every time. I do believe I may be addicted to the savory muffins and chutney! I seriously cannot leave with out taking something home also!
