Love browsing the lovely selection of homewares here. Food is really good, fresh and interesting presentation. It's close to the beach, and a nice outdoor area to sit too. Good for a browse if just picking up coffee, as their are children's gifts and general homewares. The only that could improve is the coffee.

Armchair Collective is more than just a cafe and I don't mean that just because they sell art and homewares, it's more that the food is of very good quality and the service measures up too. Well worth a visit with ample parking just up the road by the beach.

We had a delicious breakfast and there was so much variety in the menu. My husband had the eggs Benedict but it had the most delicious crumbed zucchini with a pesto hollandaise and I had the field mushroom with haloumi and poached eggs, rocket and roasted tomatoes. Highly recommend and the coffee is good.

Mixed review. Service can be a little slow, even when not busy. Irritating when young staff are ignoring customers and chatting amongst themselves. We had to wait nearly five minutes whilst they finished their chat and dance!!! The other downside is dogs sprawling in the doorway, so you cannot get through. Always very nervous about stepping over strange unknown dogs.... More

Busy place with good breakfast. Has a homewares store incorporated. Nice atmosphere, had poached eggs on toast which was done well. Do this breakfast a lot and I am fussy. Staff are busy, tried to buy something in homewares took staff awhile to figure out that item no longer available.

Thank Robyn C
