This cafe is relaxed & modern, staff are lovely too But most importantly the food is made with love, both dishes we had were packed with flavor (yes the basic eggs on toast was great)

Light lunch was a pulled lamb burger and a milkshake. Food was good and the milkshake made with espresso coffee very nice. The Cajun chips with the burger was a nice touch. Light and airy and good place to chill.

For a few weekends now, my partner and I have been enjoying a weekend brunch at Theodore's cafe. We have found the food and coffee to be consistently good, and have never waited more than 15 minutes for our meal, even after pre-warning that there may be a wait by super friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Will be returning every... More

My partner and I went here whilst waiting to see the doctor. We weren't planning on ordering anything other than coffee but then decided to have some breakfast. I had poached eggs on toast, sadly I wasn't asked what toast I would like and was given white, with smoked salmon on the side. I asked for the biggest size cappuccino... More

Go to this place regularly for breakfast or light lunches. Always good and friendly service. It is always very good cafe food at reasonable prices. Today we had mushroom soup (absolutely delicious) and a steak sandwich (a good serving). They have board specials which are always worth trying. Will definitely go back.

We frequently have Sunday brunch in the Penrith area and decided to try this cafe. Aside from slow service, I’m usually not fussy and pretty easy pleased, but even I wasn’t impressed with my eggs benedict. My partner had the big breakfast and complained that most of it wasn’t very nice at all, some of it overcooked, and the scrambled... More

The menu is very limited, focused mostly on all day breakfast. We decided to try the waffles from the specials board. In truth they were nothing special we could have had better at home. There was 1 waffle about 3 strawberries chopped & scattered. Chocolate sauce from a bottle, generic ice cream and a lot of icing sugar. Our coffee... More

Have been here a few times and they get better each time we go. The eggs are always poached perfectly and the specials are always changing and developing. This is our staple for a nice weekend breaky. Do youself a favor and try it.
