“A very good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I have been to this cafe more than a time. I enjoy their setting and coffee every time I go. Its a nice place for having a break of morning tea. For my self, I don't recommend setting outside. The service is good. Their coffee is good but defiantly not the best in the area.

“simple food, people watcher's heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Tropicana is the original home of the tropfest short film festival. It was renovated when the building it is housed in was upgraded and sadly lost some of its charm but it is still a great spot for sitting outside on large group tables and people watching, on the darlinghurst / kings cross border. Outdoors is really the best place to sit as inside has no atmosphere. The food is solid, simple fare and service is quick. Coffee is decent as well. very well priced light meals include bruschetta for $5.50 and in winter mugs of soup for $6. Larger meals are more expensive but still good value for what you get. Lots of lone diners pop in here for a quick bite and there's usually a good range of newspapers available if you've forgotten your book and don't feel like people watching. a good selection of desserts available daily, including great canoli

“Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Paid extra for avocado that was brown. Had a meal forgotten and took 20 mins to wait for the next one, so everyone had finished their meal. The service wasn't very friendly. The atmosphere inside is like a cafeteria.
