“Perfect quick lunch & vino stop while wandering around Surry Hills”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Just felt like something small but delicious for lunch and this place was perfect. Had chicken baguette which was chewy and yummy. My Gluten Free friend had the chicken salad and requested some of their special pumpkin mix on top which was no problem. Lunch was fast and it was a marvellous spot to sit, eat, chat & watch Surry Hills zoom around us. Loved it.

“Good food good service”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Was seduced here by the smell of good coffee. I really regret not trying the coffee! However, I tried the vege fritter (great) and iced tea (acceptable). This is an excellent place to people watch on the streets, as long as it isn't summer

“Great Coffee...cool place”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Found the Gnome Cafe in Surry Hills and it was a pleasant surprise.
Only tiny but had a great atmosphere and made really good coffee.

The food was also pretty nice being served on bread boards which was a bit different.
The staff were really helpful and everything came out quick.

Will definitley go back!

“Best coffee in Sydney!!!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

I thought Bourke St Bakery served up the best lattes but when we discovered this cute little gem of a cafe/wine bar, we had the most divine latte ever! It is the 'Casablanca' blend - to die for! If you're ever on Crown st Surry hills, make sure you drop by this spot!

“A little gem”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

I discovered Gnome a few months back and it has since become a brakfast favourite.
While it's small and pokey, and often a small wait is required, it's worth it!
Both the breakfast board and the goats cheese and tomato are good options - I always add a side of bacon!
Great coffee - up there with Sydneys best.
Only criticism - quality of bacon and servcing size could be better!
