Staff were friendly and service was good, the problem seems to be consistency, when you get 2 iced drinks and they both come differently it's a little worrying, specifics need to be noted, also iced drinks should have ice in them? Particularly when the waitress...More

Popped in to check out new menu hoping to see the delish soup with cheese on sourdough on the side dish. Alas, no. Ordered cheese and salad on brown instead. The coffee was welcome and wish I could say the same for the sandwich. There...More

Typical Australian service, friendly but poor. The "Old Fashion" sandwiches where made with toast bread (not fresh) with not much filling. The steak sandwich was nice, but bloody small for $18. Would not go back

This is a nice small cafe in Penrith Plaza, with a good menu in very pleasant surroundings. The waitstaff are pleasant and efficient. A good spot for a casual meal or cup of coffee.

A staple stop when visiting Penrith Plaza. Their coffee is always on point and if you have the time, definitely stop there for breakfast/brunch. The meals come quick and the staff are always friendly.

One of the best spots to drop in for a quick coffee, lunch or breaky. Fast service, top quality coffee and food and convenient whilst at Penrith Plaza.

Good coffee and quite good food but quite expensive I thought. I had breakfast bruschetta with gluten free bread which was quite tasty. Gluten free bread was typical small overly sweet supermarket gluten free bread and not quite toasted enough, but topping of egg, bacon...More

An expensive but great-sounding menu that did not deliver today. I ordered $17 granola and yoghurt for lunch from the all-day breakfast menu. A number of listed ingredients, e.g., walnuts, were missing. No explanation. The 'granola' was soggy toasted rolled oats - full stop. My...More
