Acacia Henley Beach
Loved every minute of the experience. Food and service was top notch
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.
Delicious food! Good service!
Worth visiting this lovely cafe!
Amazing menu with a great balance of options. Presentation of each dish is a work of art. This is on our doorstep & a regular place for us, never disappoints!
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.
Fantastic place for food, coffee and wine. Only downside is the noise level but no complaints whatsoever about anything else. Go there as often as possible as your always guaranteed amazing food.
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.
One of our local favourites. Food is amazing, value for money. Service is outstanding.
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!!
Had lunch with my sister and baby. Staff so friendly and food was amazing. I wanted to eat everything on the menu. Will definitely go again

Top quality food and coffee.
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.
Amazing food - well balanced, delicious and creative! I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu.
Superb food, really different flavours, lovely staff, great wine, perfect ambience.
Food + staff fantastic, was expecting more of a restaurant not cafe style. Would certainly go back though.
Breakfast was delicious, variety of breakfast menus to choose from. Polite friendly staff. Not big inside, but gives a sense closeness, and family like atmosphere and environment.
A bit loud on a Saturday morning.
We were there Friday morning as well and it was fantastic in all aspects.
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.
Beautiful food and nice atmosphere, we will be back
The perfect little spot for a different breakfast menu experience!
Excellent food with a fine dining twist from a local instutition. The dumplings are particularly impressive, as was the pork jowl. An excellent date night or catch up with friends!
We had the $45 lunch special and loved it. Great food especially the beef cheeks and the chocolate mousse dessert. Very quiet afternoon but staff were attentive.
Friendly staff and delicious 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.
Perfect breakfast - could not fault!
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.
Favourite place for brunch. We take all our interstate and international visitors there. Food amazing and owners and staff the best 😊
Finally made my way to Acacia and was so impressed! One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Taste, quality, presentation, decor and friendly staff - also excellent coffee.
Amazing food and service, these guys really know what they’re doing!
We had the degustation menu. Four entrees, two mains, two desserts. Some dishes were better than others but all were good to outstanding. Service was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. All the dishes were interesting either in presentation or content. The fish was outstanding.
The place was great and the menu had some really interesting and different dishes. The crumbed and stuffed mussels were the highlight. The downside was the the restaurant didn’t have my opentable booking in their system but luckily they had a table available
Great place with friendly staff and sensational food. Not your usual Breakfast/brunch menu, so much better with fresh, wholesome dishes
The service was amazing and so was the coffee. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and creative.
The food was truly outstanding and we have now been there for Brunch, lunch and dinner. The owners and staff are lovely and the restaurant layout is simple but nicely done. A few more things to try on the menu so will be back again.
Food was delicious and definitely not your ordinary brunch fare. Worth the drive and will visit again.
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch at Acacia and were not disapointed with the service, the selection, the coffee and the drinks. Highly recommend!
