“Breakfast Irish Style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

The food is hearty and servings are a good size. The coffee is ok but the service, like a lot of Sydney cafes, is average. This is a nice spot for breakfast in winter when you want a warming meal. The other downside is that it gets really busy out front as the cafes there are popular and people smoke at the front door, so it wafts in.

“Great Cafe with a menu twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

As with the name this cafe serves a great variety of meals incorporating potatoes and potato skins. It also has a wide variety of traditional cafe fare. Great mixed juice for only $5. Friendly and attentive staff and a relaxed vibe. Solid food and good coffee makes this cafe a great choice.

“Fun cafe with innovative ideas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Mad Spuds is really worth a visit. It's a cafe whose main menu ingredient is potato and all the different and creative ways you can present a delicious potato dish. I havent gone to Surry Hills for lunch in a while but all the restaurants and cafes in that area are great and Mad Spuds is the best in my opinion. Recommendation? Crispy potato skins and the nachos!

“Awesome cafe- fantastic vegan options!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is an awesome cafe. The vegan options are terrific, with really interesting 'foodie' kinds of dishes. Lots of home made relishes and some great salad options if you're trying to hold back on the carbs haha. Great coffee every time.
It has gluten free options as well as vegetarian, vegan and omnivore meals.
It is very well priced, and you will leave feeling full. It's not super cheap, but the size of the meals make it great value.
It is closed on Mondays and apparently the word is out as it is super busy on weekends now too...
Highly recommended!
