My wife and I had lunch there today. The café itself is kind of hidden down the back of a laneway between two buildings on Prospect Rd, and has a quirky retro feel to it. Probably not to everyone's tastes, but we liked it. We both had bruschetta with hummus, tomato and feta. Frankly I found it a little bland... More

This place is hidden away down a small lane that leads into a surprisingly large establishment. Laminex tables and old kitchen chairs are the Irish Pub equivalent of designer funky. We got rid of those things because they are uncomfortable. But, the service was swift and friendly. The food is excellent and well priced.

I love heading in here for breaky, lunch or a drink... it's a chilled out place that's kind of quirky and very cool. Hidden down a passageway with a small entry off Prospect Road, you come into what's essentially an enclosed verandah/carport at the back of some shops, and what must be one of the coolest spots in town. With... More

After seeing a noticeably 'hipster' couple walking out of a lane way while I was searching for coffee, I knew I had found caffeine gold. What I didn't know, was that I would be transported back to memories of my grandparents farmhouse in 1971 when I was a toddler! Hip to the hilt, vegan food, gluten free food, all types... More

We entered through the rear entrance as we had our dog with us. We loved the look and feel of the courtyard. We enjoyed a lovely hot breakfast. The service was friendly and efficient. Can't fault our experience

We were excited to check out this cafe and travelled out of our way especially. My tea was cold, I ordered zucchini fritters and they were more like fry pea pancakes. It was topped with a salad that had about half a red onion in it, yuck! I told one of the girls they were dry and asked for some... More

I can't help it, I just love Cafe Komodo! It might not be for everybody, but for me the atmosphere and the perpetually sweet and helpful staff make it a pleasure to visit. It is like visiting your most artistic relative's back yard for a cup of tea or a glass of wine or two, perfect in it's artiness and... More

A local favourite for an easy lunch or coffee and cake with a friend. The cafe is hidden down a passage off Prospect Rd and has indoor and outdoor retro seating. Reasonably priced menu, with salads, rolls and veggie fare plus great cakes. Well worth a visit. I understand they have live music on Friday nights, though I have never... More

I visited the island of komodo once. I'll tell you what.....that's an experience. People were very friendly and the dragons were game of thrones esk. They make a fermented drink that is pretty deadly and thank God the ocean is there to clear the head in the morning. This cafe was nothing like that but we had a good time.

Best brunch food, best vegetarian nachos, amazingly friendly servers and overall the entire place is a fun and hip spot to stop for a meal in the middle of the day.
