The restaurant was excellent, but the computer booking system was a complete failure embarrassing both the restaurant and the customer.

I had the seafood linguini which was amazing, the service was fantastic too. Our waitress took her time with a couple of people who were unsure as to what they wanted to eat, she went over their options and help them choose a meal that they too enjoyed.
Definitely will be going back to have the linguini again :)
Keep up the great work guys!!!

I ordered a burger and was very surprised when it had no salad on it! Falafel, sauce and bun without crisp greens and tomato was unpleasant, couldn’t finish it, pity as the flavour was good.

Food was good, service very good, the restaurant was full so pretty noisy. Might choose a less busy time next time. Considering how busy they were, the food came quickly.

Hi Almah, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The grilled calamari is one of our favourites too, nothing better than feeling good after eating a healthy meal! We'd recommend the Beetroot Cured Salmon next if you don't mind something a bit different.

Great place, I didn't get jam with my fruit toast, and I don't think the fresh orange juice was worth $7.50, other then that everything was nice.

Overall 2food 2service 2ambience 2

Booked a table for 2. Tables are very close together, too close. I waited for my friend for 10 minutes, at no time during this 10 minutes was I offered coffee. After my friend arrived, they seated a mother and 2 children at the table for 2 directly adjacent to us, which they added a third chair to, which made it even more cramped and noisy than it was to begin with. Meanwhile, we are still sitting with our menus, no coffee order taken, waiters seem to be avoiding eye contact. The table next to us, the mother had to hail down a waitress just to get a menu. They placed their orders before us. Finally, a waitress takes our orders. I ordered the berry bircher and my friend ordered the benedict. My friend's juice arrived. Then the coffees for the table adjacent to us arrived (they arrived and ordered after us). Then our food arrived. The eggs benedict was honestly the saddest benedict I have ever seen, small serve, poor presentation, not even house-made hash browns, they looked like frozen ones from Coles: a rip off for the price. The "sriracha hollandaise" was actually just hollandaise on the eggs, and then sriracha drizzled over the plate separately. My bircher was average. Halfway through my bircher, still no coffee: I had basically finished my food before my coffee arrived. The coffee was average, which was a disappointment given they promote themselves as coffee roasters. The saving grace of my visit was the peanut whoopie pie that I bought on my way out which was yum. But I would probably never go back here.

I was a little dissapointed with this visit.
I had booked online and asked specifically for a certain booth. When we arrived the booth was still in use, which was fine.
When they left i asked a waitress if we could swap seats (seeing as I had booked it). She said the booth was only for a table of 4, but then seated two walk-ins not even 5 minutes later.
Wasn't very impressed, every other visit has been incredible.

It was an overall really nice lunch there. Food was standard for a glen Waverley café, atmosphere was beautiful there. But the service was a bit odd, the guy that showed me to my table wasn’t wearing any uniform and gave me originally a large 4 seat table for just me and my friend. Then they moved us to 2 seat table which was much better. Then as we ate, a waiter would come to our table to fill water or ask if everything was ok (which was nice) but every 10 mins or so and got quite a bit annoying. At the end , a waiter just stared at us as we got ready to leave and made us feel rushed.
Paying was simple and quick but not too friendly, it was after the busy lunch hour but still... a smile would be nice.

I'm in my late 20's and have been living in the area my whole life. This place is hands down the best place at Brandon Park.
The service is exceptional and the food is served in a timely and presentable manner.
I would 100% recommend, as it's a diamond in the rough.
