“Understaffed and stressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

It was ANZAC Day and I guess there was penny pinching on salaries. The staff had our sympathy but overall this visit left us unimpressed. The most commonly used word was sorry from the staff apologising for wrong orders and lengthy delays. It will be a long time before we venture back there again.

“Down by the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

It could be on a lazy, shaded river bank in any country down, a hot, Australian summer day in downtown Wyong(River). Cicadas singing to the point of screaming, the babble of the Wyong River as it trickled down the fish ladder. All of this makes the Old Wyong Milk Factory(OWMF) seem like real country.
This is our second time at Cinnamon beans café so we had some experience up our sleeves. Both times we have come in a medium group of 6-8 people and although our impact may push the service schedule they have always coped with a friendly banta and smile. We order, then leave our table to walk around the eclectic mix of shops and services located in the OWMF. The offer to phone us when our meal is ready adds a nice touch. Make sure you take the short walk to the river, Wyong Shire Council and the OWMF have done a fantastic job.
The food is great, a real cross section of tastes with really fresh salads, wraps, and a few nice surprises. The prices are great. It's a bring your own but leave room to visit the cheese and chocolate craft stores/factories to take home some goodies. The chef is fantastic, great preparation and plating. He pays a friendly visit to your table to check your response.
There is a rumour that they will be opening at night with a liqueur licence early in the new year.
We like to call this our 'new place' to eat!
