    After being shown to our table, we waited for 25 minutes for our order to taken. The table next to us had the same issue as us. So it seems this could be a trend. Food came out within a reasonable time frame. No complaints there.

    We had to ask to be moved as the noise was so loud, we could not hear each other and there was only three of us. Otherwise it was a lovely lunch.

    Lovely atmosphere, staff were pleasant but not very knowledgeable about spirits options. My food choices turned out to be quite bland and lacking seasoning, salad was a bit limp and had no dressing but others’ meals looked nice. Air conditioning was freezing. Probably a nice place to have breakfast or lunch but I probably wouldn’t go back for dinner.

    Great place for a breakfast or lunch. Plenty to choose from in the menu. We found the wait staff a little pushy for ordering and then at a 1 hour and 15 mins mark they came told us that our booking had 15 minutes more. It is a little bit of a deterrent to go back as we were celebrating a birthday and felt rushed.

    The food was great. Coffee perfect. Staff amazing and very attentive. The table however was wobbly and we were sitting inside and it was quite stuffy and the windows cant open being the soecial single pane glass. But something needs to be done in regards to the airflow. We will be back in April for hightea for about 15 guests. So hoping it wont be too stuffy then.

    Waited a very long time for our meals to be delivered. The special that was ordered just after arrival for a 12 noon lunch booking, advice was provided whilst waiting to be served that it has run out, so chose something else. Chicken salad was drowned in balsamic dressing. Waitresses pleasant and lovely old building. Only 1 toilet and had to wait ages for an elderly person to get out. Ended up having to go to toilets in adjacent park. Nice place, just be prepared to wait. Glad I wasn’t in a hurry.

    Just my second visit to this beautiful cafe and just as impressed second time around. The Federation house which is the cafe is a fabulous setting directly across from Queens Park. It’s a terrific dining atmosphere, owner Jane is a terrific host and the staff are friendly and efficient. We wanted a light lunch this time so Jane recommended the arancini balls and the bruschetta to share. Perfect choice and perfectly enjoyable. Thankyou, see you next time!!
