Okra is a great cafe if your looking for a good breakfast at a reasonable price. It has a down to earth relaxed atmosphere. They make great mochas every time. I'm sure the rest of the coffees also pass the test with everyone else. But here is the best part. Their breakfasts are amazing! Eggs always cooked just right. But... More

After a not so good experience up the road, (see previous review) I decided to leg the extra distance to Okra from the motel.

Great staff, variety of indoor/ outdoor seating options available and delightful Brunch Lunch Menus with some unusual options. The staff were attentive; the food was yummy and I would certainly make it a recommended place for a mid-morning snack.

We called into Okra for coffee and a meeting. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was friendly and prompt, and I really appreciated the addition of lovely cold water without having to ask!

We visited for brunch on a Saturday, the cafe was reasonably busy, for a suburban location. The meals did take a while to arrive, but weren't expensive and tasted good. The staff were friendly, and over all an enjoyable meal out.

Coffee was pretty damn good but was a bit of a wait for my food which seems they had forgotten about.

I popped in here for a desperately needed coffee. The servers were extraordinarily friendly and polite. I had a large flat white......it was very large.....and very good. I consider this an oasis.

Visited twice, once for coffee and again for lunch. Wide range of drinks, including good choice for dairy free member of group. Tasty food and good value. Friendly staff and a few toys for kids make it the ideal brunch family venue, or any time if the day really.
