This is an eclectic coffee lounge that is easily missed as it doesnt look much from the street..but an explosion of smells and taste awaits inside! The roasted pumpkin, feta, chickpea and kale salad was amazing, washed down with a great coffee. We went back for brekky the next morning...the eggs Benedict puts Sydney breakfast to shame soooo good!

Went to the Gold Fish Bowl for breakfast and the food was so good we went back for lunch. Place is very small but very popular. Think it's where the locals go. Had best ever muesli for breakfast. They roast it themselves. Coffee is exceptional. Friday lunch pizza was great.

On another road trip and stayed overnight in Armidale and a friend took us to The Gold Fish Bowl in Armidale and how good is that! You think that places like this can only be found in the cities, well how lucky is Armidale. This place is away from it all, but the sure locals know it's there. While sitting outside in the funky courtyard I noticed some of the locals even coming in for their morning fix of coffee with their own travel mugs. I only had coffee and a pastry but the blackboard breakfast menu, well even the whole menu, makes it look like the place I'd have to go back to time and again to try from top to bottom. Next time I will have that breakfast, might even drive back up there for the day! Service was good. They even make amazing looking sourdough bread and the portugese custard tart looked great. Good stuff. City looks like it deserves more than just a drive through,especially in Autumn with the amazing colours of the trees

The only reason they get a three is because they have great food. Too pretentious for Armidale and apart from the waitresses the staff are rather unfriendly.
It is always so busy, so I would recommend going somewhere else if you just want coffee.

Can always relax in this rustic little cafe.The outside terrace is great with little kids and the Friday pizza is superb.The coffee is renowned locally and the sourdough bread is always sold out.
