Bad everything. Slow, too cool for school and/or high staff.. the ugly, sticky mismatched furniture on wobbly tables is just gross. Walk in and the clientele seem to 'catch' the staff attitude and glare at you while you go about your coffee-ing. It's just unpleasant.

My husband and I went there on 27th April for a coffee and toasted sandwich. It took the guy at the cash register at least 15 minutes to take our order of 1 small cappuccino, 1 medium flat white and 2 toasted ham, cheese, tomato...More

Great for a coffee or brunch. Really good coffee in a hipster retro environment. Has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

This place needs more staff. And perhaps some training for those that are already employed. I'd not normally visit Suspension but as my "Go-To" cafes are all closed over the Christmas break my hand was kind of forced on the matter. When they opened 10+...More

The friendliness of their service provided to their regulars, upon observation, significantly dwarfed the friendliness shown to me, though this could have been unintentional. The muffin I had was average, being also obviously catered by a service, not the cafe. The coffee was not on...More

Casual cafe, indoor and out, furniture chunky much made from railway sleepers. Recommend the quinoa, smashed avocado, and feta, along with poached egg 'n toast. Coffee excellent. Unfortunately no fresh juices other than those in bottles and I didn't notice fresh fruit salad or roast...More

Lunch time on a Monday... Easy to find a free on street car park, love this already! Hipster vibe / Melbourne look and feel cafe. Nice and busy. Classic ham and cheese toasty was spot on. Coffee was spot on. Large indoor / outdoor area....More
