Great Place to catch up with friends or for business meetings.
Great food and wonderful coffee.
Parking is a bit of an issue at the Emporium, but great place.

Ok, not a plush fine-diner......... But it does what a great cafe should !

Recently had breakfast one day, lunch another.
Both occasions we were served excellent food and drinks, coffee is good, De-Bella locally roasted and what we choose to have at home, and my Wife's "Buzz Juice" did just that, a heavily gingered citrus drink that really got you buzzed !!

We both coincidentally chose the same on both occasions, not what we usually do, however I've found that when we have done that the odd times before, it helps to critique the dish better having both savoured the same whole experience of the dish, not just a mouthful.

Breakfast saw us choose the Omelette with roast pumpkin, cherry toms, spinach, manchego etc ........ light fluffy, not overcooked, delightful.

Lunch, a hearty Bangalow roast pork sandwich and fries. Pork was to die for, succulent, moist and extremely tender and so flavoursome.

Staff are super-friendly and efficient, my Wife's phone battery had bit the dust on one occasion and on request, the lovely waitress plugged her charger in behind the counter to charge her battery up. ........Every little helps!!

Just great cafe cuisine, in a lovely area, well staffed and reasonably priced.

Cafe's don't come much better ....... Our go-to place for city brunch now on.

Highly recommended.

Whether it's breakfast or lunch Buzz serves the best meals. They are a rare restaurant that does get it right the first time. Jeanette the manager, is always very welcoming & helps makes our regular visit's even better. Good value for money.

We are regular brunchers and time and time again, we return to Buzz. Although the service can be hit and miss sometimes (generally, it is excellent when the owner is there and not as great when he is not), but the food makes up for it.

I think the prices are very reasonable for an inner-city (high rent) cafe. Our local brunching spot (40 mins from CBD) charges similar prices!

What we recommend:
- banana smoothie
- berry smoothie (ask for the dairy version, it's so much better than the fruit juice version)
- blueberry ricotta pancakes
- eggs benedict with bacon or salmon
- lamb chops
- scrambled eggs on toast

It's a very busy cafe on the weekends, so best to head there early 7-8am or after 10.30am. (i think brunch finishes at 11.30am).

I ate at Buzz with my husband because it was open early and convenient to the Emporium Hotel. We loved it so much we went back the very next day. As New Yorkers, we feel spoiled by the number of delicious brunch locations in our city, but the delicious standard we received at Buzz blew them out of the water. The quality of the ingredients is top notch, the menu creativity is fabulous, and the atmosphere is comfortable and casual. Try the omelette with roasted pumpkin. Yum!
