    Coffees came out well after the food. Then we were told we had to leave because the next group for the table had arrived and they would put our coffee in takeaway cups.

    The food was as always was great, headed a hi chair this time . . . . However the cleanliness of the chair was appalling. I wonder what else doesn’t get a proper clean.

    I love this breaky place and the food is always amazing! Unfortunately, on Sunday we just had some mix ups with our booking. The girl who was working didn’t really know how to fix it and wasn’t overly helpful. In saying that, the food was amazing as usual and we’ll happily return for the meals!

    Have had great experiences previously here over a year ago but today the highlight was the coffee, the lowlights were the service and food. Staff seemed confused about the reservation system even though more than one table was free and we had booked and confirmed, and unfortunately my friend’s taco had pockets of extreme saltiness.

    The coffee was undrinkable. The freakshakes are no longer freakshakes. The desert display was a couple of unimaginative donuts. New management and it is no longer a great place.

    Honestly the best food ! So happy my partner and I found this place, he got the pulled pork eggs Benny, which was probably the best eggs Benny I’ve had in a very long time 😍 also I highly recommend the chilli scramble if you like a bit of spice !!

    The food was good however service was pretty abysmal. Made a reservation but had no table reserved, was lucky enough to get a table however was placed near the register so was a constant back and forth of butts in my face. Took a long time to get acknowledged by staff for any kind of service and everything took a very long time to come out.

    The food here is always very good, and the service was polite and warm. We only had a slight frustration at making a booking at 11am but not being seated for over fifteen minutes. Once we’re seated food was very prompt and they thanked us for our patience, I do think though perhaps that if a booking is expected then equally the customers punctuality should also be respected.

    Breakfast/brunch is my favourite meal of the day. I like trying out new places for new dishes and takes on tried & tested dishes. Patissez is without question the best place I have eaten. I would (actually, wish I could) happily eat her every day for a fortnight, trying a new dish every day their selection is so enticing. Thank you team at Patissez. See you tomorrow before regretfully having to head back to Orange:)

    Can’t rate the food as my husband didn’t even get his meal. I had finished mine and my husband was still waiting. 30minutes. We heard a waitress tell someone they were out of French toast what my husband ordered and then I told the waitress that’s what we ordered too. Not apologetic and bad communication and service. By 10 am they were out of so many items and when we were leaving they were only writing it down on a little window. Bad service, bad communication from kitchen to service and bad communication and service with the customers. We are all the way from Sydney and was recommended this cafe and went out of our way to visit and booked weeks in advance. Disappointed is an understatement. Angry and hungry too. Still confused how you run out of French toast when it’s basically bread, egg and milk. Unless it’s prepared earlier and that’s even worse. I would not recommend this cafe to anyone.

    Staff preparing food while not wearing masks during the mask mandate. Took 45 mins to get a bacon and egg roll. Milkshake was no good. ‘Crispy bacon’ wasn’t crispy. Wouldn’t go back.
