“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I've stopped at Cafe Macquarie for brekky a few times and have never been disappointed. The food and the service are good. My favourite on the breakfast menu is the homemade muesli with poached fruit and yogurt - yum, yum.

“Enjoyable and Relaxing Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Cafe Macquarie was a really good find , providing light and filling meals and copious amounts of coffee.

Whether it is for lunch or an evening meal (we have tried both recently) the food is very tasty and plenty of it ! The staff are always very friendly and remembered us from stopping for coffee before coming back for a full meal, so that made it a very welcoming experience.

“Dependable food, very ordinary coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

A regular for our weekend family breakfasts, Cafe Macquarie has consistently served up good quality food with reasonably quick service. While not cheap, prices are on par with others in Newcastle (breakfast for 4 costing between $70 & $80).

The only let down is the quality of the coffee. When they have Peaberry's Coffee available as a local supplier, there is no excuse for not serving up a good cup. My wife has taken to abstaining from ordering coffee with her meal, preferring to grab a coffee elsewhere after we leave.
