40 of us having a great dinner. Tapas served over an hour with many great dishes and finished evening full of wonderful food. Dessert was pretty good as well.

I ordered a soy iced mocha (not on the menu) and a falafel sandwich. The mocha was super disappointing and the falafel sandwich was nice but I recommend going to the Lebanese place a couple shops up. It's cheaper and freasher. On the plus side the service was good!

Scoff and Bant roast lamb banquet sounded great for $55 a head. We had done their evening pop up restaurant before and it was great hence another visit. The vegetables weren't fab, the entree ok but lacked flavour but the real killer was a beautiful piece of lamb that was cut along instead of across the grain making the meat... More

I hadn't been to Plunge since its change to a Tapas restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The coffee was still great, although not eat owners, the very small glasses that you serve lattes in are quite literally just one sip bigger than a piccolo....not really value for money. My friends had the chicken and vegetable soup with sour dough which... More

Tasty coffee, quickly delivered followed by pretty awesome food. We were nearly done and dusted in 30mins. There were lots of friendly staff to take care of us and the only problem we had was in trying to pay (single register lady was waylaid explaining muffin options to kids then taking a load of takeaway orders - someone else needed...

Lovely little cafe, very close to Summer Hill Train Station. Good coffee and friendly staff...however, I felt that the menu was limited (lunch time) and the food ordered was average.

I've had the opportunity to eat here twice now and both times I've enjoyed my experience. The first time I went I ordered the zucchini fritters. Beautiful! Second time around, I ordered from the Special Menu board. I had the fish burger. I also ordered a side of potato rosti. I wished it had come with sauce. Nonetheless, still delicious... More

How good are the menamen eggs w spiced tomato, banana chillies & toast?! Dropped in here for an impromptu brunch with a friend and it was fab. Just a local café, nothing special to look at, clean, modern minimal thing going on, all good. Service was fine, coffee was good, just what you want. Loved the middle eastern take on... More

almost perfect then with top coffee, great brekkie & warm service but with recent change in ownership, we were disappointed. Coffee was served luke warm, our favourite ricotta hotcakes & zuchini fritters were full of flours. Service wasn't that great as staff seems to be on a rush. Disappointed as I have to find a new enclave to go to.

Thank Lawrence C
