“I'm so glad we found this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

We were in Newcastle for 4 days for a wedding so lots of family get togethers. We found Raw Cafe on our first morning when out for a walk to find a fresh juice bar, this place is that and so much more.

The juices are yummy and nothing too much trouble for the lovely friendly staff... They even made us our morning ginger shots upon request as they're not on the menu!!

We had breakfast 2 mornings and also dinner one night with different family members and each and every meal lived up to expectation.

Well done guys.. we'll certainly be back when next visiting Newcastle.

“Terrible service, terrible coffee.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I went to Raw Cafe to sit in the sun and drink coffee. The service was terrible, when I approached the checkout I got no smile or greeting, only "Just a minute". I felt a little offended that he did not even pretend to smile when I cracked a joke while paying for my coffee.

When the coffee came out, it tasted so burnt and bland that I could not drink it. I asked for a refund (and I'm not usually the type to do that, but I had just paid $4.50 for something I wasn't going to drink) and was given no apology when I got it. I swiftly took my refunded change to Good Brother, where the service is consistently good and the coffee is always delicious.

“Very filling breakie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We used our group buying voucher for a very filling breakfast recently. The freshly squeezed juices were delicious - I had the WASP and my meal (omelette) was a huge serving size. The menu clearly outlines meals suitable for those with specific dietary requirements including vego, gluten fee & paleao. On another note - If you are in the neighborhood through the week and need a quick takeaway they have a fridge with afew ready to go meals out the front - the spinach and feta salad with balsamic was delicious.

“Healthy and tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Went here with a discount voucher, which was good, as the mains for lunch were a little pricey at around $25. The food was delicious though, healthy and substantial. The fresh juices were also really good. The menu is very good for people on a grain free and protein diet. Hoping to come back to try some more tasty looking menu items. The staff were friendly, well informed, and easy on the eye!
