Quick, fresh and hits the mark for a decent Taste lunch matched by great Campos coffee. Salads, noodles and baguettes all freshly made on site and friendly attentive staff waiting to take your order.

Taste is a standout for a croissant and coffee in Surrey hills. It is right over the road from 57hotel, and a few doors up from the eastern entrance to control station. Fresh bakery things, pretty good coffee, the heaters were on (June) and lots of searing and big windows to the tweet. Outstanding for a bakery brekky.

Taste is my favorite lunch spot during the week when at work. The rolls are amazing and the salads are always interesting with a ton of variety. Eat in options are also good.

You love Pho and Laksa and know most of the best places in the CBD and surrounding areas to find the best ones. But those lunch time venue offers some fantastic food and their Pho is amazingly good!? I will be back!!

These guys are great, not just for your juice and lunch, but also for catering. I often come down and get between four and ten mixed baguettes cut in half for client meetings. They have also become accustom to me requesting between 4 and 12 mixed mini pastries and often throw in extras for free. Their baguettes really are baked... More

We really enjoyed this local's place for brekkie one morning. Great coffee. We had a cappuccino and a flat white. Two egg and Bacon Sandwiches. Absolutely terrific bread. Best breakfast we had in our two weeks in Australia.

great coffee and a perfect array of hot and cold food make this perfect for brekkie or lunch. The service was polite and professional, and the coffee was made with haste, which is just how I like it

have been to this restaurant many times. They do a great number of interesting and fresh salads and are known for their great baguettes. Having tried their beef pho I'm afraid I have become very boring and tend to stay with this delicious bowl of piping hot broth and fresh condiments. While I have noticed that the taste varies quite... More

Have patronised the Foveaux st cafe a number of times over the past few years. They have certainly improved their que management. Their baristas are still slow although my main gripe is the lack of consistency, always something goes wrong. From uncooked centres to the almond croissant to the raw egg in the bacon and egg roll, very disappointing
