“Good feed but extremely rude staff”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

The food & Coffee were good and well priced. For a well known cafe in Sydney the staff needed a major attitude adjustment. To start with the guy that was served before me went to pay with EFTPOS and was told we only take cash ( with attitude in her tone ) then I was served by guy from the kitchen who had a complete attitude and tried to hurry the whole ordering process. On a brighter note the meals didn't take long to come out. But out of five sets of cutlery 2 sets were filthy and had food scraps on them. The wait staff weren't very accommodating when we brought this issue to their attention the first time. All in all this was a fairly poor experience in a fairly iconic cafe. I wouldn't recommend eating there. There are Plenty of other cafe's that offer better service around Sydney. And with a smile.

“Bad breakfast ....”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Have eaten dinner many times at Tropicana, so decided to take the family for breakfast - big mistake. First of all I found the food very expensive for what it is and secondly the food was poor !!!! Eggs came with 1 thin slice of toast (bread looked like it came from the local supermarket) and the kids food came with bacon and hash brown which we did not ask for. The service was terrible and will certainly not be going back for breakfast. Only redeeming thing was the coffee ...
