Wilbur's is my irregular regular go to café. I always enjoy the Italian Stallion pizza while other enjoy their salads of choice. They have a diverse blackboard and set menu. Coffees are great and they have a diverse selection of desserts on offer. The beer is cold and service to table is quick and attentive. Al fresco dining is also... More

The last few reviews aren't flattering so glad I didn't see them before we ended up here for a spontaneous breakfast out. The service was friendly and welcoming, not slow at all. Reasonable menu for breakfast, most eggs or muesli or toast etc. The Newton wrap was really good - omelette with ham and tzatziki as was the 3 egg... More

we've heard good things about Wilbur's cafe from friend and went hoping for a relaxing evening with great food. We were pleasantly surprised by cake display upon our arrival but thing didn't improve from there ..... the service was slow, inattentive and made us feel like we were demanding when I went to the counter to request a couple of...

I've been a local for 34 years and used to successfully dine at this place when my boys lived at home so had a twoforone Sunday burger special when one of my sons visited. Gee it was ordinary and obviously not the "normal" burger times two, unless they try to foist one of these on customers for $22.50.

Many good experiences in past, so took family from interstate for a feed and: (1) made booking for outside table, arrived no outside table setup (2) Long delays on drinks after ordering, place half to three quarters full, waiting up to 20-25 minutes, reminder regards drinks received with disdain and 'yeh ok!' type comment (3) Spaghetti is not angel hair...

I have just had the worst fish and chips at Wilburs I have had in a long time. Chips were OK, salad was standard out of a bag stuff. but the battered fish was execrable. Soggy, tasteless, overcooked, prepared with zero care or attention. The only reason we went there was because the excellent Siam Twist opposite was closed. I... More

It was pretty quiet so we enjoyed our lunch. The mushroom burger and chips I had was great. An interesting slightly out of the way place work seeking out. Great coffee too!

We've eaten here many times because it's convenient and popular but it's definitely over priced and the quality not always spot on. The pizzas are ok but anything else is usually average. Staff are always friendly, service good, and kids are usually happy with pizza. Once in awhile you'll come on a day and flies will be everywhere, even inside... More
