This place is incredible, the food is amazing and always has something unique and different to have. Come early because you do have to wait for a table sometimes.

I was first introduced to Circa a few years ago when I was at uni, and now working a suburb over, it is my go-to Friday lunch spot to treat myself to some amazing food, and enjoy some R&R from the workweek madness. Their everyday menu is absolutely delicious (trust me, I've pretty much tried it all), but their weekly... More

Been coming here for the past 3 years, the food is consistently good and I've never had a bad coffee! The ottoman eggs is their signature dish, the French toast, baked eggs and avocado smash are also always on the menu with at least 5 other dishes which change. Food and drinks is on the pricier side (for parramatta) but... More

Had pretty low expectations of finding a great coffee and food place near the Mantra Parramatta - but that hurdle was cleared well and truly by Circa. Food was pretty special and i think the avo smashmay be the best I have ever had. The placve is seriously busy though, particularly on the weekend and if it's raining they lose... More

Have got to give this place a 12 out of 10. It hadn't been recommended to me but I always do some research before I try a new (to me) cafe,restaurant etc. Met up with a local friend who was a bit reticent about the food on offer. My friend chose the French Toast (that looked like a Monet painting... More

Nice coffee and good atmosphere to spend time with friends. We had avocado smash and soy cappuccino where both were real satisfying.

Haven't been for a few months, not much has changed. Food is still very good, but I would like to see the menu change. Not sure if the service is quirky or a little aloof, it's a fine line. Coffee always comes out a little cold when dining in, but takeaway is fine. Food is always healthy and delicious though!

Not the best food I have ever had, very average food, nothing special. I got the ottoman eggs and on it the bread was very stale. Croissant was not fresh at all compare to the price you pay for, you can have better croissants in supermarket. Service needs a lot of improvement : we were a lot of people waiting... More

Had lunch with my granddaughter on Sunday, waited for a short time for a table to be allocated. The coffee was just what we ordered ice coffee, no cream just beautiful tasting coffee. Ordered our lunch which came out surprisingly quickly, all fresh ingredients, just a lovely little spot to have a quite luncheon. Parking in the nearby council car... More
