Nice large cafe with plenty of room to move. Surprisingly nice & quiet, even though there were a fair few people in there, as some cafes can get very noisy. Great, tasty food. Great choices on the menu. Nice coffee...except the size of the glasses could be bigger as one doesn't even hit the sides. Service excellent. Prices reasonable. Would... More

Went to Crowded House on the recommendation of a friend and had a great time. They have a very pleasant shaded courtyard and the four of us ordered separate choices, each of which were enjoyed immensely. Coffee great and service very friendly. Will return if only to try more of the menu.

I think it is very poor that bacon has been taken off the menu. The owners may not eat pork, but this should not mean that customers also have to follow this principle. Also the choice of salads for lunch has been changed significantly. The only salad was a warm chicken salad which was a bit bland. I will not... More

Very spacious, not seated on top of each other and can easily converse. Food lovely...we had the butternut rosti which was light and fresh with a side of kransky which added an additional kick..service quick and polite. Great coffee

Pleasant space and menu looks OK, but staff pretentious and unhelpful. Grabbed the kids plates without them finished and without asking. The lamb salad:the lamb was done very well, succulent, but where was the salad ?!? Just a shrivelled garnish of over cooked carrots (not grilled) The step at the front is unsafe and could easily be turned into a... More

Ordered coffee, menus looked great, what I wanted to order came with poached eggs, asked if I could have scrambled instead and was told they don't swap out the eggs. Just had coffee and left. There are about 35 coffee shops in the area and the few that I frequent never have an issue at changing poached to scrambled!!! Guess... More

Although the food was good, we were a bit disappointed that they didn't serve bacon. We have had breakfast here before and although not on the menu, we were still able to have bacon. For a LCHF person it was a little disappointing. Each to their own I guess.

I can't believe that I just paid $17 for 2 and a half small chicken tenderloins and a plate of rocket. There was a small scattering of mandarin and pumpkin, but still not enough to justify that price. And I had to wait for them to redo my dish as they had spread pistachios all over when I had specifically... More

I caught up with a friend here last Saturday looking forward to a nice brekkie. As I don't eat eggs I asked if I could have bacon with the sweet potato rosti's instead. The waitress advised that they now don't have bacon on their new menu. Okay, so I was somewhat disappointed, but understand that's their decision. The waitress pointed... More
