If this was my place I would tell chef no over cooked eggs or burned toast is to go anywhere but in the bin , I was really shocked to see burned toast then speared the poached egg and that too had been cooked way beyond recognition, c'mon guys have some pride in your food before people completely desert you...

This place looked beautiful, tucked into a corner of Tedder Ave, surrounded by lovely frangipanis, full of chatting customers sitting alfresco, sipping their coffees. So we were drawn in for breakfast. The menu is varied and sounded exciting although we noticed up front the 'tourist' prices. We ordered a varied selection including pancakes, eggs and Turkish rolls. Staff were not... More

We ate breakfast here on morning. It was OK and we preferred other venues in Tedder Street. Service and food were acceptable.

We love Hard Coffee in the very atmospheric Tedder Avenue. We visited two years ago for breakfast, and have not forgotten our lovely meal. The great thing is they do breakfast all day, which I really appreciate. Our second visit did not disappoint, and our meal was fast, delicious and every bit as good. The service is friendly and efficient... More

We went to two other places but thought their coffee was easily the best. We didn't have any food so can't comment

Generous 1 star for food. Almost $35 for 2 coffees Acai bowl (puddle of slop) and a Bircher muesli (20% flour bowl). The acai bowl was a better consistency of water with about 3 bits of fruit on it. The Bircher tasted like they made it then decided to roll the whole thing out in flour and serve it up.... More

This place is amazing with the smallest kitchen anywhere. It is frequented by Main Beach locals and is very busy all the time.

Very disappointing breakfast destination. Location is fabulous, but picked the wrong coffee shop for breakfast. Presentation of food poor and served on plastic plates. I could have presented it better myself! Not happy toast was cold and hard as rock (I assume toast had been prepared hours earlier). Bacon was greasy and eggs didn't look very palatable. One of our... More

My Mother visited here one afternoon during our walk, when she came to the counter, the very rude gentlemen said they were closing and the coffee machine had been turned off. So, as any normal person would, my mother walked away, HOWEVER, whilst we were standing waiting to cross the road, another woman turned up and asked for Coffee..... and... More
