Amazing staff, food and the best long black :) We had 2 small plates to share (fried chickpea gnocchi and a salmon) and some brekkie tacos and everything was amazing!! Vegetarian options available.

We couldn’t faulted any dishes which we have ordered from both the lunch and brunch menu. Sensational, well balanced and beautifully presented dishes. Only down side of this cafe were the flies which are a little nuisance but didn’t affect us devouring the food in no time. Would definitely come back in the future.

Lovely food, nice location near the beach but on the main review with no view. A bit noisy and tables very small so a little difficult for the sharing platters we had. Made up for by the high quality of the food, very delicious.

We've been meaning to come to this place for dinner for a little while, and omg the food was sooooo amazing!
SA mussel kievs: juicy, buttery, savoury. Little burst of flavours in the mouth.
Tuna carpaccio: cauliflower vinegar, chicken garum, cured egg yolk, lettuce. This one was so unique. The cured egg sauce was really special, and the tuna was very fresh.
Caramelised potatoes: sweet and caramelised. The barley was such a nice addition to the dish.
Lentil kofte: great combination of flavours with the lentils and chickpeas.
Chicken leg: roast chicken Maryland with pickled vegetables - wow this was the absolute highlight of the meal. The chicken was very tender, and the pickles worked so well together! 😍😍😍.
Chocolate mousse: with pepperberry ice cream and fried saltbush leaves. The mousse was very smooth, and the unique flavours of the ice cream and the fried saltbush leaves made such a good combination!!

The food is modern and a big step up from traditional cafe. The winelist is interesting and thoughtful with some interesting natural wines. Service is low key and professional.

A sneak peek at an exciting new menu continues to showcase an inventive use of native Australian tastes and ingredients. The Angus and Julia Stone soundtrack was a perfect background to wonderful service and fine dining quality food.

Had a fabulous dinner Saturday night. The staff were genuine, attentive and very sweet to treat me with a complimentary glass of bubbles to congratulate me on a special occasion. Everything we ordered was delightful in taste and presentation and they even snuck in a palette cleanser in between courses as a treat as well.

The interior is stylish, the music was upbeat and perfectly suited to the environment.

The staff invited us back for breakfast the next day and I can't wait to go.

We enjoyed lunch on a winter's day. The restaurant was quite cool and drafty. The menu was interesting and the food tasty. I would recommend adding more descriptors to the meal ingredients to avoid disappointing customers, ie. if chilli is used. Overall our experience was good. My friends enjoyed the gnocchi while I had the cos salad with caper dressing. Yum!

An absolute pleasure.
The Saturday night was cold and wet outside and once we were inside we were treated with the utmost attention and tremendous detail and honesty.
On the night, front of house manager Santiago showed us a gastronomical experience with starters through to mains. My partner an I shared everything and every dish over delivered with detailed care and technique that had its own unique techniques and expressed the excellence of fresh ingredients.
We both look forward to bringing our now friends to enjoy the experience as there seems to be great movement on the menu in regards to seasonality and its apparent the chef and management have a great feel of how to run a vision through to service.

When I first made this booking I didn’t expect the place to be so small and quaint, however I don’t mind the space, it was a lovely and intimate environment, with easy listening music in the background and they definitely delivered. The Service was immaculate, very attentive and polite and the food was amazing, actually it was to die for, I had the fish and I hadn’t tasted something so heavenly for a quite a while, the fish cooked to perfection and the flavour was everlasting. Definitely a place I would come back to and definitely would recommend to all!

Our arrival was greeted with smiles, the coffee was great, the food both different and delicious (think brunch classics given a fresh twist) the service friendly yet unobtrusive... My husband, myself and our two boys aged 8 and 11 had a fantastic and relaxing experience at Acacia - highly recommend!

OMG! It’s all about the staff! Plus the food was amazing. Our guy knowledgeably guided us through the menu and we three were delighted. Confit duck with crumpet? 10/10. White bean purée with chorizo. 10/10. Salmon with devilled eggs 10/10. havent stopped talking about your venue. Read the lunch and dinner menu on way out, planning our return for sure.
