I was one of the few who had to work NYD and while not hungover, I was equally as hungry. I went here and asked for a bacon and egg roll and was advised of their equivalent which was a omelette roll, to which i had to add/pay for bacon. I ordered a large coffee as well. It didnt even... More

My partner and I were looking for a late breakfast where we found Reuben Hills. We had good experience. Food, service and environment were very nice. Over our expectations.

I loved everything about this cafe. We had the Baleada, which was fresh and delightful, so many flavours going on, truffles too, yum. We enjoyed sharing this so much we then ordered the Pork, the mix of flavours and subtle spices stayed with us when we left. The pickled rhubarb and the jalepenos were special. This was great quality food.... More

Wandered in by chance whilst looking for a breakfast eatery and we were wowed by the service, food and coffee. Possibly the best long-black we've ever had - a Guatemalan bean apparently. The scrambled eggs with chives on rye was well executed, tasty and perfectly seasoned. The fried chicken tortilla with peppered chilli mayo and tomato salsa was also excellent... More

The staff were annoying and they completely over charged me for 2 coffees. I had to order a takeaway coffee when I was already waiting on a table. Why couldn't I just get one in a cup. Weird system.

Perfect combination for us: good vibe, great food with a bit of a spicy twist (if you want it) but no attitude. Instead, friendly welcoming staff. We have been here both with and without the kids. A good alternative to the usual cafe hum drum.

I've eaten here several times and the food is well executed but very expensive for what it is. One Reuben sandwich, baked eggs and 2 coffee was over $50 whereas up the road Bourke St bakery makes an awesome Reuben sandwich for less than $10! The staff are friendly and the ambience is lively but a visit to the bathroom... More

I'm not usually a sweet breakfast fan. But the French toast, with roasted banana and bacon crumble, was delicious. The service was friendly but not overbearing, and the coffee delicious. I ended up staying for about two hours with my laptop, as it was a great atmosphere.

We sought out this place after reading plenty of good reviews. The food was really nice, but the coffee was pretty average. coffee slushy was nice though, and the filter coffee was better than the espresso.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
