Charming staff and lovely service. Drank three soy flat whites (as explained by the barista poured with cooler water to avoid curdling of soy) and ate a slice of orange and almond cake, which was tasty. Would love to visit again.

The coffee here was good. Staff was very friendly. I can also recommend the cake. I saw nice burgers at other tables. I had a salmon sandwich, which was not so amazing (white bread and the used sauce were really not my thing). The location is good. For the food I would give three stars at max overall. But due...

A bright, unpretentious cafe on the main road but with brilliant, generously portioned food. Breakfast alone was worth the trip: fresh eggs, smoked salmon, sourdough; plated by an artist in the kitchen and served by waitstaff who are keen to please and clearly enjoy their jobs. And prices which seem to be well below most of the competition. I think... More

Had the steak sandwich, tender tasty steak, great buns delicious vegetables and sauce. Also had to eat half of my wife's chicken sandwich as it was too much for her. Waitress friendly and efficient, and food delivered reasonably quick. Not a wide variety of main meals on the menu but plenty of drinks and desert choices.

Good wholesome Aussie food. Massive servings. Very clean and tidy, lovely staff, very reasonable priceing. They have gluten free, vegitarian and vegan choices. The eggs are free range and the vegies tatsed as if they'd just been picked. The slices of toast were like door steps and the bread very good quality. They do fresh juices which is great for...

Stopped for lunch on the way home. Was a little put off by the very loud-talking waitress who was very enthusiastic just loud! I had the steak sandwich which was yummy and tender. Came with crunchy beer-battered type thick cut chips which were nice. Not keen on the strange tomato relish dip though. Unfortunately the Caesar salad was disappointing. An... More

Great service with great food provided recently over the Christmas period. We had vegetarian and full breakfasts - juice was not freshly squeezed which was disappointing coffee was ok. Tea was perfect. A good place to have breakfast or morning tea.

We live locally and haven't visited Wattle Cafe for years after a not so good experience. However this time we were pleasantly surprised. With family visiting from Sydney, we decided to pop in for a quick lunch. It was early, so there were plenty of empty tables. This soon changed and the place became very busy. Service was friendly and... More

We had lunch at this cafe as there were plenty of free tables whereas other places were packed. That should have been a warning sign. I ordered a club sandwich which I only had one bite of to find a long, black hair. My friend had egg shell in her sandwich, which did not contain eggs. Two meals with objects... More
