The food was very tasty and really great serving too! The coffee was bold and delicious. The menu had a great selection of brunch and lunch options including seafood options. Friendly staff and great location.

Coffee was great, service was quick and professional, but background music was very loud, which made it difficult for our business meeting.

Over all, no other issues.

Very welcoming. Menu very good - lots to choose from BUT not over the top. Food - plenty, presented well and tasted great (Scrambled eggs on toast, mushrooms, tomatoes and bacon. Apple Juice (without ice) to die for.

We went to Acacia with high expectations after a friend recommended them. Very disappointed with the dinner menu and with the exception of the sour dough bread there was nothing we would order again. Even dessert was very average. Would not rush back and I am normally very balanced and positive with my feedback. This was my worst dining experience for a long time.

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.
