Love the good menu, the friendly and apologetic service (an inevitable wait if more than 1) and the general ambiance of the place.

This place was recommended to us for breakfast on a recent visit to Sydney - so glad we took up that recommendation! We visited twice during a three day stay, staff very friendly and greeted us with a 'welcome back' on our second morning. Lovely to see the regulars being greeted by name as they dropped in for coffee on... More

Cannot fault this place on anything. Very prompt friendly service at 7am on a Monday. Exceptional baked eggs which included feta, almonds, moroccan spices and some fresh crusty toast. Reasonably priced and great coffee also. Highly recommended

all day breakfast options were delicious, coffee was an extremely high quality (probably one of the best i've had in a long time, good work barista!) staff were uber cool, maybe a touch too cool in regards to customer service, but attentive and quick service made up for it. i will be back!

I was eating alone at 485 the other day enjoying my meal when it finally dawned on me that the cafe is actually called four-ate-five! Great food, better puns! 5 stars! Recommend the veggie burger !

I stopped by Four Ate Five last week.... I was very very disappointed with all aspects of this busy cafe. Firstly, the cafe was unclean, floors dirty, the open kitchen also unclean messy. The guest bathroom was beyond description, simply unhygenic, as it is so close to the kitchen where the food is prepared, this is very unpleasant. The floor... More

It would be a shame to come to Sydney and not pop in here. Best almond milk latte I've ever had in my life. (I actually stopped in twice in one day because it's just THAT good!) Fabulous menu for all diets, delicious food and lovely service.

The best breakfast of my life! I ordered some eggs benedict with salmon and it came out in a croissant instead of muffins. What a lovely surprise! On the side I also got some pickles and potato hash. Those housemade pickles were amazing. But not as amazing as the potato hash! How did they make this perfect little potato cake?!?!... More
