    Nice rich macchiato. Lovely deep smooth flavour with no bitterness.Great, thick fluffy hot cakes complete with honeycomb butter, maple syrup and a generous serve of fresh banana.

    Bill's is an institution. It isn't cheap and you certainly won't get a table straight away, ever. But damn, if that's not some of the best breakfast and lunch you've ever had!

    Everything is great! All day breakfasts with the amazing corn fritters or ricotta hotcakes hard to pass..chicken schnitzel, wagyu burger or salmon are all great...the flowers really make a statement

    Three girls ordered prawn linguine, yellow fish curry, ocean trout, salt and pepper squid and ricotta hot cakes. The waitress advised us might be too much. But we finished all and still want more! LoL

    First time and certainly not the last. Love the concept of food with fresh, yummy ingredients. The service was fantastic and don't get me started on the dessert. Great experience overall.

    Your dish doesn't get any fresher than this Fresh Aussie. Make sure you bring cash, else 1% CC surcharge. A great way to pass merchant fees on to diners.

    The Ricotta hotcakes totally live up to expectations, with noticeable ricotta throughout and 'can I have more please' honeycomb butter. The small serving is more than enough for dessert

    Loved this place, small, simple, quiet and tasty. If you're into pavlova, you won't be disappointed here.

    The scrambled eggs will bring a tear to your eye - perfect. The corn fritters are really special. The hot cakes are decadent and delicious.

    Super busy for breakfast, consider coming for lunch and getting the fish curry! So good!

    If I was Bill I would review my service policy. I get it's popular - the food is great - but there's no need to make people line up like a nightclub when half the tables are visibly available.

    Great staff - visit from 3pm when it's not so busy. You can continue your conversation rather than having move on for the other patrons 😏

    The smokey trout and soba is heavenly, highly recommended. Bill does great Japanese fusion healthy dishes, a bit expensive though.

    The hotcakes are very good but weird that they just put nearly a whole banana on the plate (not caramalised or anything) Coffee is pretty good too!

    Add a side of the sausage to any order. Also the eggs are unlike any other, how do they stay magic???

    The burger with cheddar is up there with the best: good meat, good relish & just the right amount of salad

    Came here cause apparently they had the best scrambled eggs. Tried it, and honestly, no big deal. But the iced chocolate was heavenly!

    I was very excited about coming here for breakfast, as I used to come here quite often when I've been living in Sydney. Unfortunately my pancakes were dry, served with a raw banana.

    The Bircher muesli and apple and sour cherry bread are both amazing- they are my staples when I come here!

    Sweet corn fritters with bacon and roasted tomato is ok. Would prefer a kilo of bacon for $10 and eating a can of edgells super sweet corn instead.

    When they are on point, the scrambled eggs are without peer. As are the Ricotta Hot Cakes with honeycomb butter.

    Zucchini fritters - tasty! The pancakes most people were tucking in to looked divine.

    The Zucchini fritters are delish but are a smaller serving for a main dish if you are on the hungry side

    Ricotta pancakes. Great but the banana serve has reduced due to banana prices going up. Great service..

    Went for lunch at 11:50. Told we'd be kicked out if a breakfast table came. Kind of rude vibe from one particular waiter. Food was fine. Tea was delicious. Want to try breakfast.

    This place is just alround GOOD! Muffins are top quality. Coffee nice and full bodied and consistent. A tad on the pricey side though.

    Ricotta hotcakes. I wish the portion was smaller. It's too much for 1 person

    As always is great for a leisurely lunch, the salmon is cooked perfectly
