I generally visit this venue once a week for breakfast and other times for a coffee. It offers excellent food, friendly services and a relaxed atmosphere for a very reasonable price. I can recommend the Eggs Benny or Salmon Avo Smash, which you can get with a Cappuccino for less than twenty dollars. They must get quite a bit of... More

We have been coming here for years and despite a change of ownership it still rates well. The food is fresh and well priced. The signature dressing on salads, the lovely superhot chips, & the yummy big menu. The service is friendly and prompt. There is an outdoor area and a pleasant ambience inside. My only complaint is that they... More

Met a friend for lunch and it was really good food. I had the steak sandwich which came with chips and my friend had poached eggs from the all day breakfast menu. We had coffee for afters and was the first place where I've had a decent coffee for ages. The service was friendly and efficient. We will be back.

My friend and I always meet at Thyme Square for coffee or a light lunch. They have indoor and outdoor tables and most impressively booths. They are a friendly helpful bunch, nothing is too much trouble. When we last visited, a week ago, a large table had been set up in the middle of the room for a function of... More

I was disappointed taking my family for dinner as the food was not fantastic and the waiter did not care as we had a Groupon deals.

served my friend off feta, and had the decency to still try and charge me with a 10% off my total bill.her excuse was because the rest of my dish was still fresh. disgusted by their hygiene.

It's just ordinary restaurant . Not a place to take family for birthday dinner. I took my family for dinner with a Groupon but we could not choose what we wanted...and what was advertised with Groupon. The waiter, not so friendly and not so happy we are using the Groupon 😳🙁 I wanted my family to enjoy the atmosphere and... More

Thyme Square has always been a favourite of mine, even though it's changed its locality a few years ago and has different owners. The food is good and always plenty of it. I like the coffee and the staff are friendly.

The old folks visit here whenever they are in Hornsby and really enjoy it so when we need a quick brunch bite (pretentious much??) we made this our stop. We were seated promptly and with a smile. Our meals were delicious - a very filling Mushroom Risotto and a perfectly sized Vegetable Stack. We couldn't fault for speed, service and... More

Have been here a few times since my last review. Honestly, they’re trying hard but they just seem to miss the really obvious aspects of service. Its all very well to have apps and gadgets where you can order your meal and pay for it without having to get up but for us, you know, basics like checking that all... More
