Having been sent to suspension on a recommendation, I was expecting big things! Our breakfast and coffee were good, although the service let them down. I get that Suspension has a relaxed vibe but the service to order and receive food was very slow. My only other qualm is $3 for one rasher of bacon is very steep.

Nice spot for a coffee. Didn't get to try the food. There is plenty of space to sit inside and outside. Good for casual but maybe not business. Staff look like hippies.

Popped into Suspension after picking a friend up from the station. Very convenient location! Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Ordered coffees and asked for the tastiest treat, was recommended the blueberry danish. Happy customer!

Enter the door... Order from a tasty yet simple menu... Take your table card and relax in a melting pot of Ph.D.,s, degrees, mums, dads, kids, nans & pops and you can even bring your dog (to the outside areas). It's our go to place for cruisey Sunday breakfasts...

Food is excellent, especially the smashed avo and the Harissa bruschetta!! Only negative is the food is not always consistent, young lady with red hair makes awesome food she should show the others her tricks to keep it consistent. Always friendly and pleasant. Animal friendly. Highly recommend.

My family and I regularly go to suspension for breakfast/brunch. It's pretty much our favourite place to go. easy space for our 2 year old to explore, coffee is great and food is delicious. Relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. We'll always come back.

Excellent coffee (although ask specially if you like it quite hot), nice atmosphere, particularly sitting in the courtyard out the back, lovely staff, but service quite slow. I feel they might be doing the take away coffees first at the expense of the people who chose to sit down. Please don't do that!
