Found this on trip adviser and was not disappointed. Interesting menu with wide contemporary offer on the all day breakfast menu. We ordered Red Chilli eggs and a breakfast bowl. Eggs were deliciously scrambled and served with bacon pieces, shallots and chilli on Morpeth sourdough....More

Cafe Macquarie has a great breakfast menu from chilli scrambled eggs to smashed avocado with poached eggs. Great lunch menu too and close to everything - shopping and the Lake.

Our group of 4 visited recently for brunch. Staff were very pleasant, meals were large and very tasty, and the coffee was good. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

New owners, new menu but still a great cafe. I miss the $12 Tuesday Toastie, but they still have a $12 quick eats menu, with the main menu mainly consisting of all day breakfast. The avocado and feta on sourdough is delish!
