Went to Twig for lunch, and the experience was a dismal failure. Here's what we didn't like: * The coffee. Really nasty and bitter. Truly awful flavour. And not served hot as requested. * The service was scatty, unfocused and unattentative. * no all-day breakfast menu (ok not everyone does that), and the lunch menu was overpriced right across the...

I'm not a dessert person but the gluten-free orange cake was sheer amazingness in my mouth. Great coffee, and lovely flowers on every table. What's a girl not to like?

This is a great cafe with delicious fare off a side street in Surry Hills. The food is amazing with lots of choice including some lovely sweets and cakes. Also love their chai latte which is made with frothy hot milk in a large tea pot and served in a cute vintage tea cup. There is a nice garden shop... More

Tucked away on the corner of Cleveland and Young Streets in the trendy Surry Hills area of Sydney, this is a lovely place to start the day or drop in at some point for a refreshing tea or coffee. The café is sandwiched in between the two halves of a small garden centre, and has outdoor seating upstairs.

Enjoyed a great casual yet sublime gathering with family at Twigs in the hustle of Surry Hills. Just off busy Cleveland Street you would not have really known...the Cafe is at the rear & has a great funky atmosphere. Adjoining a gorgeous garden shop this is an awesome location to sit back & enjoy watching time pass you by &... More
