Busy little restaurant. Popular with businessmen and builders. The food is good, served promptly. The coffee is good, served hot. Nothing flash - but better than your average eaterie

I first contacted Drexels from my place of business to enquirer if we could pre order so it's ready quickly and we wouldn't be late for work, which was available. This morning we arrived and was greeted with excellent service by PJ shin to our table and waited for other members to arrive. During the wait a young waitress Tayla... More

Me & my partner came here on a Tuesday afternoon, the service we got was great, with us both working in hospitality this was really nice to see. The food we ordered was delicious, I had the eggs Benedict & my girlfriend had the Farmers breakfast! Both were perfect, followed up by some amazing French toast and bottomless tea. The... More

I always order the Salmon eggs benedict and a hash brown (not to be missed), along with bottomless coffee. It never fails to impress. The staff are kind and courteous, the food is mind blowing, and the 'diner' is always humming. A must visit breakfast delight.

Two thumbs up for this breakfast and lunch restaurant. My wife and I ordered eggs benedict and Drexel's special and guess what? It was just amazing, really delicious. The staffs did a great job, friendly and very attentive as well. The environment of this restaurant was nice and comfortable too. Hopefully I can return to this restaurant in the future... More

Great way to start the day. Smiling staff, great food and the sounds of life all around you. This was not our first time and it won't be the last. Drexel's is one of those places you can really enjoy visiting. The menu is consistent, the quality of the food is always top notch. Pancakes with banana baked in the... More

A very popular place. A lot going for it. We had a birthday celebration last Sunday but couldn't get in. We went today....A week later. Lovely food. Never disappoints. Eggs are free range (which is important to us) and bacon is always yummy. My favourite is their French toast. Service is great, despite being busy. Plenty of staff. Can recommend.

This was a great restaurant for breakfast. Only negative would be that the service was quite slow. We were trying to get on the road but it took 1.5 hours for us to get our breakfast and finish it. It was Easter weekend so maybe it was busier than usual

Drexels in the place we go when we want a decent breakfast style meal and don't want to worry about the quality or .service... it is simply always the same. The menu hasn't changed since whenever so we know exactly what we will be ordering: I always have the Farmer's breakfast (because its good and I'm greedy) and my partner... More
