“Breakfast”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

We went here on the reviews. There weren't any people in the cafe until we sat down and the service was very bad. Had to wait along time to be served and then a long wait for a coffee and a juice. Had "the judge breakfast" which was very nice a lot of food for $21. In all nice food but poor service and quiet rude.

“Historical facade with modern interior setting”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Interesting cafe in a historical building which has been renovated but still retains the original high dome ceiling.
It offers a wide choice of menu and is a popular venue for weddings and special occasions.
Attended a wedding for around 100 guests - nice modern setting and well catered in a relaxing ambience.

“Was this just an exception....?”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Just a warning..lunched at Hyde Park Barracks Cafe on Australia Day and waited for over an hour for food. Customers were complaining left, right and centre about the delay. Wait staff were composed but there must have been chaos in the kitchen. An adjoining diner left after a long wait as he had a train to catch. We just had the single dish, the Daily Special - a simple lamb rump with salad - thought that would be quick, sadly not. No explanation to waiting customers, no warning to incoming customers. It was Australia Day and the cafe was full so i'm sure this could not be normal. So just a warning...in case you're in a hurry. The meal was fine, not great.

“Four good experiences...”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

Visited here four times and each time the food was excellent. It's a great setting in the courtyard of the Hyde park barracks, just a very short walk from the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Service was a little curt on occasion and the food does take some time to arrive but it is more than worth the wait.
