We had breakfast here and the food, service and fresh produce is excellent.The food is not your average everyday style breakfast. It is made with finesse using very good quality ingredients and looks very pretty on the plate. The portions are generous too. Would gladly come back again to try other food options.

My daughter and I met dad for lunch. We came across this cafe because as we went to walk past my daughter noticed so many gluten free desserts. Being coeliac we need gluten free food and knowledgable staff. The manager and chefs were great, they knew about contamination and understood GF properly. The food was fresh, tasty and so enjoyable.... More

Easily walked past, this cafe doesn't look particularly special from the outside but word has fast spread amongst locals who wish to seek healthy and quality food that it is the best place in town. I don't know how the chefs can create such masterpieces in their tiny kitchen but they do it in style. They also make low carb... More

I popped in here for breakfast while waiting for a meeting. I ordered the Smashed Avocado which when arrived was a sight to behold. They turned a plain dish into something quite visually amazing, it was totally delicious as well. Good coffee and really friendly staff to add to the occasion.

My husband and I have been coming here almost every week for the past three years, which says a lot since Crows Nest is awash with cafes. Why? The answer is simple: Scrumptious, innovative, healthy, beautifully cooked and perfectly presented food; lots of variety. And finally, Sacred Grounds organic coffee! Their cakes, muffins, banana bread etc are homemade and always... More

Only a short stroll form St Leonards Railway Station on the eastern side, located on a sunny corner is Caffe Nostra. I cosy café with indoor and outdoor seating. On a chilly morning, all the indoor seats were taken quickly. We sat outside, sheltered from the wind by the wall of the shop. A cheerful waitress offered us to sit... More

I would come to this café most lunch breaks with some of the girls from the office as the food was really good but we always found the service slightly below par. The owner is a really lovely lady and most of the staff are nice but often it took ages to get a menu or be served. The last... More

This is a lovely bright local café in St Leonards. I had the smashed avocado, halumi, poached eggs platter on sour dough toast. This was a pretty generous serving. Asked for a hot coffee and it came out hot and strong, just the way I like it.

Not sure why there are so many good reviews of this place. Poor menu choice, runny scrambled eggs and dry stake rye toast. Staff were rude . When there are ai many other choices up the road why go here?
