    Ive always loved this cafe but not a fan of their new alternate bread option and they wouldn’t let us sub it for a normal bread. They also wouldn’t let our friend with food intolerances change to a GF plain bread with eggs because they don’t do changes on weekends, which is disappointing. Won’t bother going again on a weekend with a group, stick to week days.

    First time dining at 8 Murray Street. Didn’t disappoint on all levels. Even got a coffee on the house for having to wait a little longer thank usual for meal than normal. My friend and I were enjoying our catch up that we didn’t even notice the time delay! Will be again.

    8 Murray Street is an inner city northside treasure. The staff clearly enjoy their work environment and we are always treated like friends when we return. The food is creative, interesting, full of flavour and disgustingly healthy! Ask for an Apricot 8 Murray Street Bellini style cocktail, containing fruit from their own apricot tree in the courtyard. It's amazing! We love this place.

    Fantastic brunch spot. I had my 2 kids with me and another party member had a puppy. Plenty of room for all of us and the staff made sure we were comfy and happy. The cafe is welcoming and spacious. The staff are wonderful and the food is YUM!

    Great food, drinks and vibes are what 8 Murray do. It's always a great place to go, that said, they are very popular and their kitchen gets easily overwhelmed so service of drinks and food can be very slow. Staff are very friendly and helpful nonetheless.

    8 Murray St never disappoints--welcoming staff, a beautiful space both inside and in the courtyard, and a warm atmosphere without being too noisy. Love the food (plus the punny menu names) and am so glad to be back after the long months of covid! The cafe has always accommodated us really well after bike rides; plenty of secure space at the back of the courtyard to keep our bikes safe and out of everyone's way.

    We reserved a table for Saturday morning and were put in a cold, dark room on the side. It was an unenjoyable experience. Disappointing that staff wouldn't attempt to find alternate seating when we enquired, simply telling us this is as good as it will get. Cooling rather than heating was put on in the room to held the cold.

    First breakfast out in a very long time and I wanted it to be perfect and it was! I’ve been meaning to go for brekky here for a while and take my friend and we were both pleasantly satisfied. Amazing service, food was tasty and fresh and to top it off, so many cute doggies to get your daily dose of cuteness. Love this place and will return again and again ❤️

    What an incredible place to go for breakfast/lunch! Food was outstanding. So delicious and not the usual stuff that every cafe seems to have. Coffee and cocktails were a hit and the overall vibe with outdoor garden and attentive staff just made it unforgettable. Would highly recommend the fritter avo toast dish, (can't remember the actual name sorry) the "brunch with fun guys" dish, the cheesy mash brown, the polenta chips and allll the drinks!! So pretty much everything haha. 10/10
