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.

This cafe has great coffee and food . Sometimes the servings are on the small side but quality always high . The menu is not the usual cafe food with a nod to the modern middle eastern . Look out for the chefs pop ups each month adventurous and fun .

Really enjoyed a late lunch here. Ordered several of the Meze options and they were lovely portions. Would have liked better service from the staff. Other then that great cafe!

Aside from the junkies queuing outside the pharmacy next door, this cafe had a nice feel. The menu was basic and anything considered meat seemed to be an extra with min $4 charge which was disappointing. Took a few minutes of standing at the counter waiting to pay and had to flag them down that I was there. I must... More
