I have to say disappointment does not cover this. We were flying out to Bali and thought we would grab a quick coffee and milkshake. Wow, this place is bad and shouldn't even be open. I think from memory Neil Perry commented on some special dishes -not that I tried them but I'm sure he would like to remove his... More

Cafe Vue has always been our preferred eating place in International Departures, but breakfast this morning was just awful. I know that they are constrained by the work in progress, but that's no excuse. Service, whilst friendly, was slow, and one pat of almost liquid butter, and one small capsule of jam with two slices of sourdough toast is just... More

How hard is it to serve a decent croissant ? Under cooked, tastless and for the price, bitterly disappointed.

This is the second or third time we've grabbed a bite to eat and never been disappointed. One of the best places to eat in the international terminal.

I researched this place before finding it. Expected to be told that they had no glutenfree food, I was surprised they had a good choice. I opted for a chunky and substantial slice of gf banana bread, I ate it on the flight and it was delicious. The coffee there is also exceptional and on my next flight, I will... More

We ate breakfast before an Int flight. 2 serves of poached eggs and sides. Food was stone cold as they got the table number wrong. Toast was soft and under cooked. Coffees had to be chased up and took over 30mins. Cost was $72 incl a bottle of water. I know you pay a bit more at the airport for... More

I bought a yoghurt and granola cup, a fruit salad and some macarons. Fruit was miserable and old, macarons were decent, but I waited 20 minutes for my yoghurt. My partner went around 10min to ask where it was, they said it was coming. Another 10 minutes and I was ready to just ask for a refund and they gave... More

Dont like leaving negative reviews however just finished a very mediocre latte, my partner an overpriced hot chocolate. I get there is a price to pay for location and perceived quality however $20 is a bit much, Hopetoun tearooms this aint.

We've eaten here before and love the cooked breakfasts. But this visit was a little disappointing. The breakfast granola was bland, our order came out in dribs and drabs (there were six of us) and the coffee was below par. We'll try it again and maybe stick to the cooked breakfast next time.

The coffee was good, nice and creamy - but that's it. Menu was interesting, salted banana porridge a bit bland. Omelette as good. Expensive $5.20 for regular coffee or $6.20 if you want soy. $23.00 for the omelette and $13.50 for porridge. No butter served with the bread, needs to be ordered as an extra! Nice place to sit and... More
