Lovely location with plenty to see close bye . Good parking and the atmosphere for a coffee and light food is excellent.

This is our favourite place for breakfast. You can watch the world go by with great coffee and food. Best service in Brisbane, owner is always around and making sure you are happy, and is happy to have a chat

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

I am very surprised to hear some negative reviews of Vroom. I went down for breakfast one morning and even went back for lunch a few days later. Both times I was greeted by friendly staff who were quick and efficient yet friendly. Food was fantastic, I enjoyed the Eggs Benedict for breakfast (homemade hollandaise sauce!) and the lemon and herb chicken salad for lunch. Delicious. Will definitely be returning again!

“Vroom doom ... wait wait wait”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Omg we had to wait wait wait for food despite prompting staff twice over 50 min period. There were few customers in this brunch period and well short of capacity and yet our order was repeatedly lost. We even heard manager and staff talking about chaotic kitchen. Finally walked out and took earlier drinks 'on the house'. Went to spoon over the road near fresh food market and ambience, prices and general quality there made up for vroom doom!

“Very unimpressed!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

My sister and I were looking for a quick bite to eat. Firstly waited over 20 mins for a very over priced sandwich and salad. The wrong salad was delivered but as we were in a hurry we accepted it. Admittedly they only charged us half the price for the salad. It was definitely not even worth that. When we approached the cash register wanting to pay the waitress serving us asked us where we were sitting. I am very over places thinking they can charge the earth, serve bad food and not really care about the quality of the guest experience. Not sure how they are in business in James street???
