“Pretentious afternoon tea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

I dropped in on my way home for a coffee and something sweet but after seeing the prices for drinks settled for a piece of banana bread, I couldn't leave without buying anything.

After finally being noticed I paid for it and left (it was rather noisy but didn't look all that busy come to think of it). Bland chewy banana bread. Definitely suggesting it to anyone, unless I'm dragged along by a friend who's paying!

“Wickedly Sweet Caramel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Have had a few lunches with friends during winter and spring 2013. Always delicious food and the caramel coffees, both hot and cold are truly wicked and worth a repeat, particularly for those of us who can't have chocolate without an accompanying migraine. Only gave them a Very Good, not Excellent, as it can be difficult to attract the waitress's attention when they are more than half full.

“Great food and atmosphere. Shame about the music.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

I have just enjoyed a delightfully pleasant Sunday morning breakfast at Sweet Caramel.
Food very good, coffee very good. Just a shame about the terrible music playing in the
background. I asked the waitress, who was very good, who the singer was but she only knew
it to be some CD of covers. I consider the music background to be an important part of the
whole dining experience so I feel SC are letting themselves down a bit here. Otherwise very
good. I will go back and listen to my Ipod.

“YUMBO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Having breakfast at Sweet Caramel a number of times we noticed their sign "open for dinner on weekends" we were offered the dining menu to view and that got us in. We had a family visiting for the weekend and decided to make a booking. We all thorougly enjoyed all our meals, with the odd comment of "best dining ever" posted on a few Facebook pages to boot. Thank you Sweet Caramel for taking Bathurst Thai dining experience to another level.
