“A really pleasant cafe for a cappuccino and an almond croissant.”

No cafe will impress everybody but Edwards will impress most. Their coffee is consistently good and their food is interesting and certainly better than you'll get in your average cafe. Edwards also sells an interesting range of deli items plus fresh fruit and vegetables. They're not trying to compete with Safeway next door so expect to pay a premium for higher quality produce. I sometimes call in for a cappuccino and an almond croissant and I read the newspaper. I like the fact that Edwards provide a range of daily newspapers free of charge for their customers....it's just part of the sharp service that Edwards provides.

We’ve been to Edwards many times but this was the first visit since they expanded their dining area as well as the tables available outside at the front of the store and in the lane way next to the store. It has doubled the number of tables available inside to diners. We went for coffee on a Thursday and it was packed. It’s a good idea to book if going for lunch. Luckily, there was a table available and it’s no fuss if you’re only after coffee. And, by the way, the coffee is excellent. There are plenty of tasty sweet treats and a delicious wholesome menu. We have eaten at Edwards many times before. The high ceilings mean there is a slight level of sound that travels around the dining space but not overbearing. Edwards Providore, as the name indicates, also carries many items of food from packaged meals and foodstuff to fresh fruit and other savoury goods. They have a good range of gluten free foods too. They also carry the best peanut butter we’ve ever tasted. We always get some to take home. You are always greeted in a friendly manner and the staff are cheery.

Visited Edwards's over the weekend with my family. Our coffee was great , the service was ok.
Prices are at the upper end for a cafe/coffee shop.
Very busy place , the staff were pleasant enough but seemed under the pump. Some confusion about waiting to be seated or grabbing a table as soon as one becomes available.
Lots of interesting merchandise to buy instore , added bonus that the shopping centre is close by.

This Restaurant has just undergone an extension and has really improved the room for Diners, we have been there several times, but lately they have reduced the variety of Cakes on offer and have moved to a Main Meal type of eatery.
They have fallen down on staff dress codes, we were there 3 weeks ago and one ofe the waiters looked a real roughie type wearing a beach singlet and showing of his hairt chest and underarms which was not very impressive to my guests

I have been going to your cafe for the last three years two or three times a week but it saddens me to say if the waiter does not start wearing more respectable clothing, I will not be back.
A male wearing a sports tee shirt showing hairy armpits and chest really does nothing for your excellent coffee and food.
