On the whole food has been above average; however, a few times the meals have been VERY disappointing in size for an adult male (me). I have learned to ask about meal size before ordering so I don't go hungry and then I'm well fed.

I went to the high tea here today. They were so kind to prepare the vegetarian option for me. I loved every treats. The savory ones were amazing. The pastry treats were divine. To me it would be nice if the tea was served the same time as the treats. The cost is ok at $27 per person. I will... More

Cafe Brie is awesome for a nice lunch with colleagues! The coffee is great, the food is beautifully prepared and presented and tastes divine. For a nice coffee and cake with a friend or a full meal I love the quiet and slightly romantic unobtrusive atmosphere, furnishings and ambience !

From the moment you enter this gorgeous Cafe, you are greeted warmly and made to feel very welcomed! If it's a quick coffee meeting or a longer break to enjoy something from their delicious menu! It's never disappointing! So pleased to hear they are now open for Sunday brunch!

Had breakfast three days in a row, Eggs bene, good. Big Brekkie, good. Potato Stack/galette thing, good but I might be a little ignorant- I thought a galette was a flat or flattish pancake type meal. Tasty all the same. Coffee was tasty and consistent. Thanks for keeping me energised Cafe Brie!

I have been a patron here for about 5 years and every coffee, cooked meal or something from the cabinet has been very good. The staff are friendly and efficient. It has a neighbourhood feel about it yet is is also a city cafe/restaurant.

Enjoy the coffee at this Café being very much to my taste. Service could be smarter, one staff member handling all the customers orders and making coffees / drinks, while another sitting at a table doing accounts. Could be more proactive towards their customers but well worth the wait knowing the standard of coffee made here - which is very... More
