Excellent food choice, fantastic specials, splendid coffee. Not as much space for patrons but definitely superior service and food/drink. Great courtyard area out back.

This is one of my favourite breakfast places in Sydney!! They make amazing hot cakes and cous cous porridge. The mandarin lychee juice is to die for!!!! I have been to this cafe a dozen or more times and it is always fabulous food :)

Met my friend for lunch at Summer Hill, on one of the hottest days of the year (38.6 Degrees Celsius). Really needed air conditioning and the restaurant we chose was closed. We settled on Plunge No. 46, as it was full of customers and it was cool. A bit noisy with so many people, we moved further back in the... More

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...
