Excellent! Food was delicious, and the waiter was more than helpful with menu suggestions. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere, the staff were all courteous and helpful, and the coffee was excellent. The menu has a good range of choices, the food we had was very tasty with fresh local ingredients. Well done folks, we look forward to our next visit. See less

New Chef Jordan has introduced an outstanding range of high quality offerings. The smashed avo was the best I have tasted in quite awhile. The shared plate was substantial, eggs done perfectly and delicious generous chèvre serving. Equally impressive was Rita who served us and understood all the nuances of how we might like our order to be prepared and presented. She was outstanding, efficient and pleasant. I’ll be back to work through the menu. See less

This was a wonderful experience on a glorious sunny autumn day! New chef with excellent fresh, modern menu and produce. Staff has changed and is now helpful and attentive. Will come back regularly, after a while of losing interest. Well done and success to you! 💜 See less

Overall, pretty good place. Nice atmosphere and happy customer service. Coffee was pretty good too, could be little better. I’d come back again, just would like to see a change table in the bathroom for our mum and dad’s who come with little ones. See less

I would have given a higher rating but our brunch was ruined by selfish people who think COVID laws don’t apply to them. Those are the ones that will close your business down. Whilst there on Sat 8th jan 4 patrons arrived no masks in sight, walking around freely. Changed their table three times after sitting down at them for a period of time. Tables did not get wiped down after they had sprawled their belongings and hands all over. Walked inside without wearing masks and were not challenged by the staff despite mandatory mask signage. I advised staff and all they said was sorry. Too young and too scared. Employ people who can speak up for your staff and your patrons safety. I work in health, we are struggling already to cope with the impact of COVID and this scenario infuriated me. See less

Nice food spoilt by the majority of the staff. Some of the food was wrong, one person didn’t get their drink, seated outside when we booked two weeks ago for an inside table. Everything was too much of an effort for the staff. See less

Visit this place if you like Service without a smile! The waiting staff were not friendly at all, our food was served without cutlery, waitress was annoyed, and humped when we asked for some 😳 The food was pretty average, toast was drenched in oil or butter, mushrooms were very very salty, as were the scrambled eggs.. how can the chef stuff up such a staple breakfast option 🤷🏼😱 Lastly, the atmosphere is extremely noise, and it was virtually impossible to have a conversation without shouting at each other. Don’t recommend See less

Food and atmosphere was fantastic... however the long wait for food and poor customer service was not. 20 minutes into waiting, we asked the waitress where our food was and was told it would be another 10 minutes. When I questioned the 10 minutes, waitress straight out lied saying it was being plated right now. Well plated right now and it will be ready in 10 minutes is not the same thing. When the food eventually came out 15 minutes later, clearly the order was forgotten about. The waitress who assured me it was getting plated, sent the food to the wrong table (seems like a common practice at this cafe from what I witnessed in my time of waiting), which almost got eaten had it not been for them realising the other dish wasn’t theirs. Not even an apology about the delay. Look, if the food is late or the order was lost in the kitchen, it’s fine to say so, I’d have been more understanding, but this place needs to teach their staff not straight out lie to their patrons.

Came on a Sunday arvo, ordered food (which was a really simple order of toast and vegies) and after waiting 20 minutes, asked how much longer food would take. Staff responded with 'I'll check for you'. Staff returned and said it wouldn't take much longer, they only have 1 chef today and it should be out within 10 mins...and then quickly changed her mind and said that the chef is 'literally plating it up now'. (10 mins and plating it up now are entirely different). Meanwhile the table next to us already got served their plates of food (4 meals), though they placed their order 15minutes after we had. To top this off, our smoothie was served to the table next to us instead of to us, and after a further 15mins our food finally arrived, and was once again served to the table next to us instead (we had to tell the waitress that it was our order). When the food arrived we commented that we thought they had forgotten about our order, to which the waitress simply brushed it off by laughing and saying 'no ofcourse not' and walked off. In addition to this, on multiple occasions when asking how long the food would take, we were not given any apology at all by any of the staff. The staff need training as we were completely disrespected as patrons today, lied to about the order when questioned (that it was being plated up when clearly they had actually completely forgotten about the order). Furthermore, the 'poached' egg on our plate was not poached at all, the whites were all runny, like the chef just dipped it in and out. Today's experience would've been bearable had the staff: 1. Admitted that they had forgotten our order and thats why other peoples mealsvwere served up way before ours arrived, 2. Actually apologised for their slow service, 3. Used the table numbers for their purpose that is to actually serve food to the correct tables. See less

Honestly best combo ever; Hair Salon & Cafe all built in one! Surreal Eats staff members are very friendly and serves a variety of tasty food options on their menu. Their coffee are delicious and well served; the coffee beans are not over-roasted nor is the coffee too watery. Definitely recommend getting a bite from this place and possibly a hair do too if you need one! See less

This place used to be my go-to for coffee and quick bites. Today, I was in and had a chicken focaccia that had moldy tomatoes on it. I am not sure if it is under new ownership or management, but it has definitely gone done hill. Will not be eating here again. See less
