“Great food; fast and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were greeted by its friendly staff when we walked in. Service was fast and efficient. The attention to detail was great - they offered to join two tables for us, among other little things.

Great selection of food and they tasted great! The food was served quickly. Could do with some detailed description of food on the menu though, as one of the dishes didn't turn out quite as we expected.

Nice setting which gives a cosy feel to the cafe, which is located in the city fringe.

“Trendy Tuck Shop takes the prize”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a very popular little cafe that is worth the hassle you may have on a busy day trying to find parking nearby (fine for locals to walk to). The staff are consistently friendly and will try to seat you as soon as they can (you may have to wait in the doorway for a while on the busy days). Coffee is excellent and there is a good array of breakfast and lunch choices. Sweet note: have tried cakes a couple of times and while they look appealing, tend to be a little too sweet.

“Great food, excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We went to the Tuck Shop for an early breakfast on their last day of business for 2012. I had a meat pie and chips. The meat pie was excellent, the pastry was perfect and the filling was flavourful. However, the chips were a little soggy. The service was excellent and the coffee was also delicious. Get in early to avoid the queues!

“Great little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The Tuck shop serves great coffee & nice food with great atmosphere. If there is an issue it is because they are victims of their own success as the shop can be too busy!

“Always Good with friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I am a local and this is just about my favourite lunch spot. Food is good and well served with a concentration on the variations on the aussie meat pie, but also a variety of salad and other lighter dishes.
Also just a great place to drop in for a coffee - a great traditional machiato and what's more the barista remembers my order from visit to visit
