I have been to Mink many times. I used to have my meetings here and then started having catch ups with friends here because I like the food and the service. My favourites are the eggs bene with salmon and spinach - they give capers with the meal! Yum! I've also had the salmon and cream cheese bagel too. I... More

We visited while staying at Quest Hotel Parnell nearby. We found the food, coffee and service to be very good. I had poached eggs with toast and found the eggs to be the richest yellow I have ever seen Partner had French Toast and thought it was best ever. Thoroughly recommend

We had a fine breakfast here. The staff were lovely. The food was just ok - I didn't particularly enjoy mine but my partner was happy enough. There was a kids menu.

Visited here 3 days in a row last week. Great coffee each time and a breakfast menu offering lots of choice. There are more trendy places around but this was the best for value and quality.

Took an opportunity to go back to this old favourite on a recent visit to town. Sunday people watching turned up too much middle-aged Lycra types but we had a laugh. Coffee spot on, breakfast great. Corned beef hash cake was delicious. Great smiley waitress service, no long delay despite it being so busy.

My grilled snapper was delicious. However, the service I got during a slow hour for late lunch was not convincing. Slow and hint of arrogance was my experience. The Internet was supposed to work but it turned out to be slow too, and unreliable. Since the price level is on the expensive side in Mink Cafe my overall rating stays... More

Great breakfast with really nice freshly squeezed juice! Perfect start to my day! Price is reasonable and you can get in and out quickly with a quality feed. A definite visit.

If you want a good coffee you cannot go past this cafe. The food is good, but it is expensive compared to other cafes. I had breakfast and it was expensive for scrambled eggs on toast with a side of bacon. But the service is efficient and the cafe was clean and had a great atmosphere. It appeared very popular...

We had decided to walk back to our hotel, and needed to stop for a refreshing drink! We sat outside, enjoyed delicious drinks, and watched the world go by! What more do you need on holiday!
