2nd time we've visited this place. Would visit again as my son likes it, and I like the coffee. I just wish they'd get a twice repeated order done correctly. Maybe next time, as we visit Westmead a couple of times a year. (A bacon...More

Unfortunately we need to visit Westmead Children’s Hospital on a regular basis. After a long journey with the family it is a welcome thing to sit for a while and eat at the Bear Brasserie. The menu could do with some more vegan options but...More

Convenient location and acceptable coffee. Kid sized milkshakes a bonus. Staff were none too friendly but maybe it had been a hard morning.

I've eaten here several times and although the food is okay (nothing special) I think the menu is overpriced. It's a convenient location. The customer service is a little rusty.
