I am not a big eater these days so was pleased to see that I could choose to order 2 or 3 sliders. The usual serve of 3 sliders at other places is just a bit too much so I opted for 2. They came with fries, which was handy because it saved my friend from ordering a serve of... More

The menu descriptions sounded delicious, but when the dishes came out we were horrified - we thought they made a mistake and brought out something from a kids' menu. seriously! For $16.90 a plate from the lunch menu, you would expect a decent sized portion. I ordered a lamb dish and I could not see a single piece of lamb... More

Shocking! For the price we paid, the portion for the lunch menu is paltry to say the least. I couldn't believe my eyes when our dishes came out : they all looked like they were from the kids menu seriously. Cakes were ok and also on the pricey side. My lamb dish had no hint of any meat. We left... More

The food was tasty but not a huge serve, for the price The coffee was great. The waiter spoke so softly I couldn't hear him. The wooden table was sticky (yuck) overall it was good. But could be better.

What a great place to enjoy a bowl of "fantastic" coffee and something to eat. The staff make the Shingle Inn a really great and relaxing experience. Come see for yourself, you will enjoy the experience and be well satisfied. Phillip

Probably a little overpriced but lunch was okay for a large shopping centre, a bit of a quiet oasis in a busy environment. Basic fare such as toasted sandwiches, focaccias, etc.

Our main complaint was that the service was incredibly rude. An item was forgotten which is no problem, however the staff took it extremely badly. They didn't say sorry and were extremely condescending and seemed to take it personally. They brought the item over without looking at us and ignored a "thank you". As I've worked in service I try...

Stopped for a bite to eat because I was impressed with the decor - cosy and inviting on a cold winters day. The menu is a cut above usual cafés. We enjoyed chicken, walnut and tarragon and chicken and avocado sandwiches (made after we ordered) with great coffee. The service was prompt and efficient. We will be back.

too over priced. I ordered an Omlette , sandwich and 2 coffees $34.00, at the Glen shopping centre, nearly died. Hope I don't get the ""Shingles"" , after the shock of the price!!!
