Sunday breakfast/brunch at Armchair was a great experience. However, would have liked more breakfast menu items past 11:30 given it was Sunday. Muffins/Friands were moist but the icing was a bit sweet. Bacon and egg rolls were perfectly done - bun was soft, aioli was flavourful and egg and bacon were cooked perfectly as requested. Leg ham with pesto ciabatta... More

Come here often and am always impressed. Being so busy they manage to get the food out quick and on point. For breakfast the bacon and egg roll is the best. Coffee is excellent too.

A return visit after a year and the food is still delicious and generous. Lovely atmosphere, with lots of beautiful things to buy and the plates are piled high with crispy bacon, masses of chunky avocado and crunchy toast with gooey poached eggs. A winner.

Always a good meal at Armchair and relaxed venue. Let the kids drink water as 3 milkshakes cost $20. Great for coffee and burgers.

Interesting breakfast menu, not just variants of eggs/sourdough toast etc. You can have for eg corn fritters, or a haloumi cheese stack with mushrooms. Great to see a creative menu done well, in a quirky cafe that is part restaurant and part homewares store. I eat there regularly. Recommended.

We met friends here for brunch, and were lucky enough to be able to find a car park spot directly across the road. It was busy and, like in most cafe's, you find your table first and then order at the counter. The menu wasn't extensive, but the items they did list were of a solid quality. I ordered the... More

My partner went to the Armchair Collective in August 2016 for brunch. I had the vegan burger and an almond hot chocolate. Staff wasn't very friendly but the food paid out: the burger was very good and fulfilling, and I think the place is quite expensive because every single item in the burger was healthy and tasty. As for the... More
