    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!

    Fried rice bowl is SIMPLY amazeballs! (See pic) Schnitzel is also good. My friend had the burger and she really enjoyed that as well. Also ricotta pancakes - fab!

    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

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

    Known for their brunch, but the dinner here is killer too. Multiple locations in Sydney, but the Surrey Hills spot has a particularly great aesthetic.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

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