Chips were cold, coffee luke warm, eggs in the Eggs Benedict were poached solid, bacon was impossible to bite. Venue is still nice but food is only just passable. Only needs a few minor tweaks and could be really good.

Absolutely shocking level of service. 44 minute wait for a coffee and when it came it was tepid, watery and undrinkable. The girl at the entry turned every 2nd group away with the excuse they did not have a booking even though the ones she...let in did not have bookings and she was completely overwhelmed by one lady that insisted she be let in without checking in, wearing a mask or show her proof of vaccination because she, very loudly, stated she was under no obligation to do so. So in she went, 20 minute after our order was taken and left with her coffee 15 minutes before ours was finally delivered. The couple at the table besides us got up and left in disgust leaving their full plates of food barely touched and without the coffees they had paid for. Definetly will not ever be back. Just a disappointing waste of time and money.More

Went for lunch here after making the trip to Samford to visit the Store of Requirement. This cafe is in dire need of repair with several dents and holes in the walls one looks like a chair was pushed into the wall. There were little...bugs crawling in the plastic menu display on our table. Kids food was basically packet Mac and cheese and some lettuce leaves. Quite expensive for the range of food available. Also the children commented on the decor which included a mounted female bust and the door stopper which was a naked person crouching over. Wouldn’t eat there again.More

Had breakfast this morning at this restaurant. Food was delicious ! Coffee was very smooth with barista style presentation. Staff was very pleasant to order from. Was amazed to even have a sneak peak of some fresh baked brownie pieces as the staff observed me...drooling at the mouth water spread in the front glass food cabinet. Will defiantly have my return business !More

A big disappointment after a much anticipated trip to Samford Village. My wife ordered Eggs Benedict and asked for mushrooms instead of the usual Salmon or Bacon options. When our meals were served the Rocket was limp, seen fresher in a bag from the supermarket,...accompanied by two mushrooms that didn't look fresh. The bread looked like cut off crust. She left the meal after one bite. The coffee was good. My Wagyu Burger and chips passed muster with taste and texture. Would not return.More

The setting is quite charming in the small rural suburb of Samford, however the food was certainly very disappointing. The fallout was missing in a menu that could have been a delight. Need to improve considerable before I would return.

Had the chicken on waffles and pancakes. The chicken on waffles was interesting and very tasty. Coffees well made and hot. Service was very good.

10 tennis ladies were looked after so well by curly headed polite and obliging lad. Food was perfect. Lovely private room with plenty of atmosphere. Could not fault anything.

We had come over for a bush walk and had read lots of good reviews about this place. When we got here, I opened up TA to find that recently the reviews haven't been so great and that maybe the place had changed owners. Keeping...in mind we were here at 10.30am on a Thursday, service was good and the food came out very fast. Everything was tasty, I couldn't complain. I've never been here before the owners changed, but I don't think this place deserves the previous bad reviews from what we experienced today. The area is beautiful and the Harry Potter shop next door was cool.More

Always a favourite in the past, but reminded of long waits for food. Today is sadly the last time I will go to the Flying Nun. Wanting to take a special friend to somewhere special. Instead we walked out after an hour & 25 minutes...after arriving (5 minutes early) for our booked table. We ordered after we had been seated for 10 minutes. I overheard the consierge say 5 minutes later to prospective walkie ns that there was a 40 minute wait on food. They were reasonably busy - not as busy as I have seen. No explanation or heads up given to us. I politely enquired after 1 hour where our food was to be offered an apology & free coffee & cake. Hunger took over & we left to seek quick food in the village. Not good enough.More
