    Ricotta hotcakes are so soft, buttery, and hipster

    Simon Tan · August 3

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

    The ricotta hot cakes are a dream.

    The food was nice, staff were lovely but the hour wait was definitely not worth it.

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

    Best scrambled eggs in the world. THIS IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION.

    Great food, fresh and tasty, on the pricier side...

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

    Spot to go for pancakes and eggs!

    I died and went to scrambled egg heaven.

    Excellent scrambled eggs -light and fluffy. Corn fritters were sublime.

    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.

    Coffee. Poor service

    Ken Wild · October 23, 2014

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

    Best breakfast in Sydney! Ricotta hotcakes ❤️

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

    Hotcakes and corn fritters every time!

    Ricotta pancakes all the way!

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

    Iconic brunch dishes honeycomb ricotta pancakes or scrambled eggs.

    The service here is awful. When we are seated we are not offered water or coffees. We waited 20mins just to get a menu and then we were just ignored for another 10mins. We left and won't be back!

    Just get pancakes. Love it.

    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

    Mel Mc · June 15, 2014
  • Mel M.

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

    Mel Mc · June 15, 2014
  • Steve N.

    Always delicious and consistent. Staff sometimes get a bit scattered when it's busy though ...

    Steve Nash · April 27, 2014

    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.

    I think food here is overpriced! There is a Better cafe called Pieno which is further down the street!

    Lester Chan · March 21, 2014
  • Mel M.

    There is no excuse for not ordering the oversized White chocolate and pistachio pavlova, strawberries and rosewater cream

    Fabulous cafe.

    Alex Torrance · February 13, 2014
  • Rae M.

    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.

    Scrambled eggs 👌

    Zucchini fritters with soft boiled egg and haloumi cheese -- amazing!!

    Go for the eggs.

    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

    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!

    Claire Peucker · July 9, 2013
  • Kirsten H.

    Avocado & Corriander on rye is a gorgeous fresh breakfast. There must be an entire avocado on it!

    Kirsten Hughes · June 17, 2013
  • Min C.

    Order as soon as you can. Service is rather crap during the busy breakfast bustle!

    Min Collier · June 12, 2013

    Amazing breakfast this morning! Definitely recommend the granola - healthy and delicious! Will be back for sure :)

    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.

    Merili Baralic Padilla · March 19, 2013
  • Rob M.

    Arrogant and disgraceful service. Food was OK but one of our orders never arrived despite asking several times. Save your time and go to Reuben Hills around the corner.

    Ricotta hotcake is the winner!
