“Great Cafe with a menu twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

As with the name this cafe serves a great variety of meals incorporating potatoes and potato skins. It also has a wide variety of traditional cafe fare. Great mixed juice for only $5. Friendly and attentive staff and a relaxed vibe. Solid food and good coffee makes this cafe a great choice.

“Fun cafe with innovative ideas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Mad Spuds is really worth a visit. It's a cafe whose main menu ingredient is potato and all the different and creative ways you can present a delicious potato dish. I havent gone to Surry Hills for lunch in a while but all the restaurants and cafes in that area are great and Mad Spuds is the best in my opinion. Recommendation? Crispy potato skins and the nachos!

“Awesome cafe- fantastic vegan options!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is an awesome cafe. The vegan options are terrific, with really interesting 'foodie' kinds of dishes. Lots of home made relishes and some great salad options if you're trying to hold back on the carbs haha. Great coffee every time.
It has gluten free options as well as vegetarian, vegan and omnivore meals.
It is very well priced, and you will leave feeling full. It's not super cheap, but the size of the meals make it great value.
It is closed on Mondays and apparently the word is out as it is super busy on weekends now too...
Highly recommended!

“Very creative menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

I had the most delicious chorizo and sweet potato. The place was very busy but we didnt wait long for a seat outside. Service was a little slow but the food was worth the wait. The presentation was beautiful. Like a work of art.
