We only dropped in for brunch and the menu was very encompassing. Greeting was very welcoming and we were shown to a table with no fuss with menus provided. Seems like there is a larger area upstairs but we didn't ask any details but the food and coffee were excellent.

We had Sunday lunch here and the staff were excellent. The menu isn't very large but what we had was good. Nice, friendly place with very reasonable prices.

This is the second meal we have had at Essen and it was great both times. We are travelling to Sydney from Canberra for kid's cricket and Essen just ticks all the boxes for us. See you next time.

We chose Essen from the reviews for lunch and were not disappointed, the veal schnitzel was huge and the seafood mornay topper was also generous. The meal was tasty and the service pleasant. We will return to try breakfast.

We'd been shopping in the area and popped in here for a quick lunch. From blackboard menu looked quite ordinary but the food was surprisingly tasty. Would definitely go back again when in the area

I would most definitely rate this Cafe 100/100 my partner and I arrived 30minutes before closing time and they still allowed us to order our food . They deliver absolute excellence from customer service to fresh salad and amazingly great tasting food. Unfortunately we didn't get to have dessert because our bellies were so full but will most definitely go... More

One serving of arancini balls with cheesy sauce in a separate dish - quite good. One beef croquettes with sauce served in a separate dish. One fresh-pear and chopped-walnut salad with lots of tender rocket; the dressing served in a separate dish. One tasty-fish with fresh traditional salad and chips. One glass of drinkable red wine. One pot of tea.... More
