My wife and I regularly visit Citrus Cafe on Oxford. The Roast specials on weekends are very tasty although for the very modest price of around $12, you can't expect big portions. It's so good, it's almost worth ordering 2 serves!

The cake cabinet is to die for, even though the prices are a little above average.

The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is attentive and Glen the owner is often around just to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Will be back soon!

Went here for dinner with friends and had the time of our lives, predominately French restaurant but had a twist of every other country including Aussie, de mar was fantastic, Turkish fingers and trio of dips was awesome for starters, even had risotto, pad Thai and chicken parmegana. What a flavour full place, well worth a visit and meal, outside dining was great, staff were friendly, pleasant and very helpful always checking to see if everything was ok, will definitely come back next time visiting friends in Brisbane.

I ordered one of the most expensive things on the menu - a salmon on a pumpkin feta and pine nut salad. The salmon was poached and utterly plain. The salad consisted of 99% salad leaves and a smattering of miniscule cubes of pumpkin. Could have counted them on one hand. Come on Citrus Cafe! For $28 I want some substance to the meal. And considering that pumpkin is one of the cheapest vegetables available, you could have at least bulked out the meal with an actual decent portion of pumpkin. I just feel quite ripped off. The other diners at the table were equally unimpressed. Only two of the meals seemed substantial enough to be called a proper meal. The fish one person ordered was overcooked to the point of almost being burnt. Another serving of fish was dry and inedible. I will never return to this place - there are far superior places on Oxford St. As someone on here mentioned - Cinema Cafe across the road for a start. Very unimpressed. Would also be helpful if the staff had a decent grasp of the English language. Ordered Kahlua and a Corona turned up. And we had to repeat our orders to be understood.

Good coffee, good cakes and good service. Even their take away coffees are good and come with complimentary lotus biscuits.

While waiting for our meal a friend we had not seen in years walked by so we invited him to have a seat. Within about 30 seconds the manager stormed out and rudely told our friend to leave as he was eating a pie he had bought from elsewhere. We then waited over half an hour for our meals even though it was a quiet day. Service was obviously very poor and we had to pay for our meals prior, the reason why it came apparent once we received our poorly cooked meals . I will never recommend this place to anyone , I am still amazed at the rudeness displayed by the manager, and the stupid excuses he gave us to "get rid" of our friend who was simply sitting with two paying customers for a few min on a day where there was more than ample seating .
