Went to Lotus with my family for breakfast during the Christmas break. We were seated outside, even though it was quite a warm day we were sheltered and provided plenty of water throughout our meal. Drinks were ice cold and refreshing and our food was devine. I highly recommend the sweet corn cakes with poached eggs. Highly recommend!

This place. What a gem. I had the roasted pumpkin with haloumi and poached eggs and it was stellar. Huge menu, great service, good vibes.

We enjoyed breakfast here two mornings in a row while staying across the street at the Junction hotel. I enjoyed a breakfast which consisted of sweet corn cakes, topped with spicy chorizo, greens and two poached eggs. It was the BEST. My husband had the "Build your own breakfast" which he also enjoyed. Our waiter gave us some complimentary vegimite,... More

Excellent menu and wine selection. The service is wonderful and overall the experience is very good value for the quality. The atmosphere is perfect for a relaxed meal with partner, friends or colleagues. I like a waiter who gives you a smile and has a chat no matter how brief. It doesn't cost anything and it really leaves you with... More

Looking for a new place to try, we stopped in at Lotus for lunch. The décor and appearance were ordinary, but the menu and wine list both offered a good range of choices. We both opted for the seafood plate special, and were not disappointed - the food was fresh and well cooked, and came hot from the kitchen. The... More
