My experience here on the weekend was 10/10. The service was fantastic, quick & effortless. The staff were really friendly. The meal was to die for and the coffee spot on. I have already sent recommendations to a bunch of friends travelling - visiting Machine Laundry Cafe is a MUST when you're in the area. Cannot wait to get back... More

Coffee was ordinary, restaurant was noisy. The breakfast was like it was mass produced. We were very disappointed after the big write-up about how good it was.

We found the machine laundry on a very rainy morning. Consequently the cafe was jam packed, and we ended up having to sit outside getting a little bit wet. However the staff were super accomodating and let us inside as soon as a table became free (just after we ordered). The food and coffee came quickly and was delicious, my... More

Myself and my sidekick visited on a very busy lunch as the market was on and close by. The place was packed but the efficient chirpy staff had a table cleared and ready promptly. The vibe was excellent staff were upbeat but not intrusive and service was very prompt. We of course tried the eggs Florentine and royale as we... More

With competition so fierce in the café space everywhere seems to have a gimic these days. Whilst the quirky decor and coin laundry gimic is cool what really makes Machine Laundry a winner is the quality of the food & drinks. My hotcakes were out of this world. Service was great. We'll definitely be back.
