Have been a few times as we live quite close to not bread alone just to give it extra chances to make sure it wasn't just an off day for them. Each time we went the coffee was terrible and food not much better. I also got a take away coffee once and the coffee shot was pre poured.... Won't... More

Stumbled across this lovely little hidden Gem, while in Crows Nest yesterday. Upon walking into cafe my 5yo saw a jar of lollies and of of course immediately his eyes lit up, the very kind lady offered him not only 1 but 2 he was over the moon. Fantastic, friendly service with nice coffee and milk shakes. Will definitely be... More

Friends found this place for us after recently moving in to the area so we popped in for lunch. The staff were great and the service from them was too. There are lots of nice options on the food and wine lists. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal. Nice in winter in the sun out the back. A nice... More

The service is excellent -- the owner is a gem, and her wait staff are marvelous. I am less enthusiastic about the food. It's reasonable -- nothing more.

Came here on a cold winter morning for breakfast, had the pancakes with maple syrup, the maple syrup was very nice. Also had the corn with bacon, wasn't my favourite as I have a sweet tooth...

Extremely BAD customer service from the apparent owner of the place, wait time extremely long and till date never been to a place with such a horrible service. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else, plenty of other places in that vicinity. The owner needs to get some basic speaking skills.

This was definitely not the quality breakfast I was hoping for, based on the reviews I chose to go here and was very disappointed I ordered a banana smoothie Which I couldn't finish as it was just off tasting. The eggs benedict were just ok nothing special and certainly nothing to make me want to go back again. Friendly service... More

Took my mum here today for Mother's Day lunch. Ordered mains and ended up waiting nearly 1.5 hours for our food to show. When we questioned the waitress after about an hour of waiting she just shrugged and said "It's Mothers Day, everyones in the same boat" No apology was given, not even when they finally bought out the meals....

Not bread alone is the restaurant that I always use to introduce people to crows nest. It had a lovely atmosphere and the food is always amazing. I brought 5 of my friends this week to Not Bread Alone and they instantly loved it! The waiter was lovely and attentive. The food was delicious. I had the BBQ duck salad.... More
