Here are the plus points of the Book Kitchen:

The food is, by and large, fantastic.
It's a really cool little cafe with interesting decor.
Good spot for brunch with friends.

And now for the negatives.

When it gets busy, prepare to wait a long time for a seat and food; recently my friends and I waited 20 minutes to be seated and 50 minutes for our food.

The staff are generally pretty good but our waitress, being a comedienne it seems, decided to take the p*ss out of my accent when I asked for sauce with my breakfast. I know the over-familiarity vibe is a must have characteristic for Surry Hills cafes but we'd waited 50 minutes for our food...know your audience. Just saying.

The coffee was just ok. For the price they charge it really shouldn't be.

This is a great place to go for a chilled out breakfast.
Good value and good coffee in a nice setting.
We go here regularly and will continue to.

This place is fantastice for breakfast- loved the ham hock and eggs with feta. Service can be a bit patchy when they are busy so no need to go here if you are in a rush. great venu
