After an exhausting Saturday morning of bargain hunting at Glebe markets a trip to Clipper was just what we needed! Avocado toast and Home-made baked beans w poached eggs 🍳and halloumi were both great choices! Replenishing juices and great coffees too. Thoroughly a great cafe I would recommend with a huge menu to choose from! Enjoy!

We stopped for coffee and a snack after church on a Sunday. The service, decor, menu and price were excellent. We had the pesto, mushroom eggs and the avocado and tomato on toast. Coffees were excellent and they were able to accommodate an unusual drink request. All very nice. Groovy, reasonably priced, delicious and friendly!

Waitress was very helpful and even got me a phone charger when i asked if they got any! This place ticks all the boxes... More

We went there for a late breakfast and it wasn't good at all. Service is slow, meals arrived before the drinks. Bacon roll dry as they forgot to put the sauce inside. Expresso is horrible, taste of burnt. The place by itself needs a refresh and you have much better places around like WellCo. Won't come back and clearly don't... More

Firstly let me say 5 Stars for the Barista and his coffee. Absolutely Devine!! Wife and I stopped in for a coffee and a quick bite for work. Ordered a provolone toast (mushroom, cheese, tomatoes on 2 slices of sourdough). Only four other customers at the time and the food took ages to arrive. Once it did it was completely... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
Glebe
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
