“Great good let down by the wait”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I was excited to try this cafe as I love going out for breakfast and this seemed to be the place. The cafe is only very small and I was immediately put off by the sign saying they would not do eggs any other way than poached. Breakfast is not a difficult meal to make and if you're not going to cook people's eggs the way they want then why bother doing breakfast?? We waited half an hour for the coffees to come out and they were burnt. Breakfast took an hour. The manager came out and offered us free drinks (only from the fridge). In all fairness my meal was delicious, I had the Mile high to LA and it was tasty and inventive but I was just so sick of waiting I couldn't enjoy it. The staff just seem so disorganized, I think with some managerial work and another cook in the kitchen this place would be much better

“Decent but doesn't match up to expectations”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Maybe we are being a bit critical because we know a good breakfast. It is a decent breakfast but wouldn't agree with its current rating.

Good size meals. The mushrooms were very good. Coffee is not the best in town. Location is a bit disappointing as it is in an open arcade. Friendly staff

“SO YUM”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Great breaky! Mile High to LA was just awesome. Pretty big serving, make sure you're hungry. Pancakes were a hit for the kids and the coffee was good too.

“Decent breakfast”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I had their large breakfast plate, with eggs, hash browns, beans, sausages, mushrooms, bacon and toasts. It was good, but nothing special. The bacon and the sausages are nice, the mushrooms were a little bit watery. The staff is friendly.
The location is so-so as they are located inside an "open-air" arcade.

“Worth the wait...and a return trip!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Read the reviews on here, looking for a great breakfast, and Easy Cafe did not disappoint. From inventive ”benedicts”, and scrambles, to the "towers" which were a delicious rendition of the Kitchen Sink, we were enamored with the options. And since any good breakfast place MUST have good coffee, this was so good we returned the following day just for a to-go cup on out way sailing. Note: closed Mondays.
