served my friend off feta, and had the decency to still try and charge me with a 10% off my total bill.her excuse was because the rest of my dish was still fresh. disgusted by their hygiene.

I took my family for dinner with a Groupon but we could not choose what we wanted...and what was advertised with Groupon. The waiter, not so friendly and not so happy we are using the Groupon 😳🙁 I wanted my family to enjoy the atmosphere and... More

Thyme Square has always been a favourite of mine, even though it's changed its locality a few years ago and has different owners. The food is good and always plenty of it. I like the coffee and the staff are friendly.

The old folks visit here whenever they are in Hornsby and really enjoy it so when we need a quick brunch bite (pretentious much??) we made this our stop. We were seated promptly and with a smile. Our meals were delicious - a very filling Mushroom Risotto and a perfectly sized Vegetable Stack. We couldn't fault for speed, service and... More

Have been here a few times since my last review. Honestly, they’re trying hard but they just seem to miss the really obvious aspects of service. Its all very well to have apps and gadgets where you can order your meal and pay for it without having to get up but for us, you know, basics like checking that all... More

We were openly welcomed, the restaurant had nice deco and was very clean. The menu was good, food very tasty and fresh. Saima was our waitress she... More

Polite and welcoming staff, prompt service and fresh, filling meals. On this occasion, my dad and I enjoyed a hot and cold seafood platter, garlic bread, salad and wine for dinner. I had purchased a Groupon deal (and was unaware that it had expired by a couple of weeks). I phoned the cafe directly - there wasn't an issue redeeming... More

We had a lovely dinner at this casual restaurant. The food was delicious and cooked just as we requested. All four of us agreed we would return in the near future.

We shared 2 entrées, salt and pepper squid and the Haloumi cheese with sea scallops, Both were lovely,This was followed by a half lobster each. Very nice. For the main, I... More

My wife and I love to stop in here for brekkie on the weekend. The food portions are always generous & the coffee not to hot. The new owners make you feel very welcome.
