Tasty nutritious food, & the focus is where it should be.
Fitout is so unimportant. We just want good food, friendly service, & guess what...that means happy customers & consequently a warm & happy atmosphere.
I'll be back ASAP.
Loved the bread.

Went for brunch after hearing some good reviews.

The place is somewhere worth visiting just because of the way it is set up - with a furniture store in an old warehouse in an Industrial park in Sydney. The kitchen and food preparation is open for everyone to see which is great.

The place was packed which says a lot about its popularity.

Breakfast menu only had about 5 options and these were on the pricey side. Food was ok, not spectacular. Lunch menu that was being prepared looked like it had much more variety.

Would be interested in coming back for lunch

Okay so if you like the seriously basic warehouse surroundings and porridge served in an enamel bowl then this is the place for you to have breakfast. There is not much dish selection (no egg choice) - and no Gluten Free option - so be prepared. I did enjoy the coffee and the porridge was - well - porridge, just like I make at home, but topped with a spoon of very nice preserved fruit. They were kind enough to toast some gluten free bread my wife had paced in her handbag as this turned out to be the only food that she could eat, and even more kindly provided the butter and jam for her at no cost.

We heard from a number of people that lunch at Kitchen by Mike is stunning - and this is the real focus they have taking fresh produce daily and presenting a small but high quality selection of eat-in or take-out lunches for the local office workers. The location is definitely worth the visit, and the dining experience unusual - a little chic - in that big open old warehouse way. I'm more the egg and bacon type for a breakfast out so will time my next visit for lunch.

Went for lunch a few weeks ago on a Saturday. Waited about 20-25 mins to get to the front of the line which was fine as there was lots to look at. Really friendly guy serving me, but once I got passed along it got a little sour and disorganised. Took AGES for our coffees to come, actually we had finished our meal ( which was lovely with great flavours)

Suggestions-

Have a blackboard outside or above the canteen like servery. Its really hard to see whats on the menu and slows down the line when people have to ask for more info all the time. Plus it will give people something to do when waiting in line.

I will check it out again, which is saying something in this amazing city with so many options!
