Food was surprisingly amazing! Great use of local ingredients that were cooked and presented in the most creatively delicious way. The only drawback is that for a group of more than 4, the table/seating may be a bit squeezy.
The owner/manager took his time and went through the menu with us, despite the cafe being bustling. What a fantastic service!

Unusual place. Food very flavourful and varied. Portions breakfast/lunch reasonable but very filling with the flavour. Would certainly re visit.

although the food was outstanding
at $75/h the value wasn't there. If it was $60/h I would have given all 5s.
a piece of bread with butter is not a course.

Food was okay I did request for my eggs to be cooked medium and was told they only cook them
one way have been many times an it was amamzIng but I feel maybe they have changed owners or management and have a New menu which didn’t have a lot to choose from unless you wanted to do a share plate.

Unfortunately it took around 10 mins for our coffee order to be taken and another 15 for food after that. The food was very oily and despite asking for toast without butter, it came out with olive oil.

The tasting menu was divine! Every single course was a sensory overload in the best way. Great selection of wine and cocktails and they guided myself to pair the food with what to drink.

Lovely brunch spot by the waterfront. Place is a little small but ambiance makes up for it. Price tag may be steep however flavours we had were outstanding. Would return!

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.
