Went to Dragonfly Cafe with another couple just to get easy breakfast before heading out to check Broome I have never waited for so long for a meal in any restaurant ever. Altough the drinks came fast, the breakfast itself came literally HOUR later and after one of us standing up to check what's the hold up. A lot of... More

Waited 45 mins for a simple lunch for two (wraps). Iced coffee came out first and had melted by the time our lunch came, and only then after asking if the'd forgotten our order. Try Green Mango instead

This cafe is a great find. Located on the main strip with seating indoors and outdoors, also allowing dogs outdoors and under the verandah. The staff are always friendly and helpful.The food is top class, tasty and always fresh!! They also have the best smoothies in town by a long shot.

We pretty much always come here for coffee as it the most organised and good strong coffee. I havent eaten but the food that comes out of the kitchen is well presented and generous in size, two people could share a lots of the dishes. Tip; get a loyalty card to get your 10th coffee free

I can't recommend the Cafe at all. The coffee isn't really good, even the Maccas coffee was better. But the biggest issue is the staff. It was so unfriendly, every single time we went there. We couldn't feel comfortable at all. One day they just put the chairs up on the tables while there were still people eating!! Rarely seen... More

We stopped for coffee and a muffin while waiting for our car to be serviced. The cafe is in a great spot to observe Chinatown comings and goings. There was a long wait for the coffee to arrive but when it did it was enjoyable. If you are not in a hurry would recommend. One of the locals told us... More

This was a great find in Broome. The Dragonfly Cafe is located centrally in Chinatown and does a busy trade. We found the service and the food very pleasant. Will visit again.

The Dragonfly consistently provided excellent quality meals, delivered promptly, and by friendly and competent wait staff. We went back for repeat meals. You can dine inside or outside and the atmosphere is very pleasant.

Lovely staff doing a brisk trade. It did take an inordinate time for me to get my coffee but it was a decent cup. Great people watching spot as well.
