Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Omlette was undercooked- range of cabinet food very average. OK but not great value for your dollar. Parking sometimes difficult

This was the first and last visit to Columbus Coffee for me. We ordered two frappes and two slices at 12:28. The slices took 14 minutes to arrive at the table while the frappes took 18 minutes. When we ordered we were told we could...sit in the foyer or at that table without the server making it entirely clear where that table was so I had to ask. The server didn’t ask whether we had a loyalty card and when we picked on up and asked if the order could be added to the card we were advised sadly no as we had already paid but we could take a card for next time. Yeah nah. We won’t be back. This cafe is literally less than 200m from my new job so it could have become the regular for lunch but there was nothing about this visit that has me prepared to do it again. Plenty of other options in the vicinity that will get my custom instead.More

I popped into Columbus Coffee with some colleagues and ordered an iced coffee. We were eating in and sat at a table near the counter. My colleagues were having coffee which arrived in the usual reusable ceramic type cup - but I was appalled to...see that my iced coffee was in a plastic container with a plastic lid and a plastic straw. The coffee was ok (when they say iced coffee, they mean coffee with ice, you can forget any icecream or cinnamon sprinkled on top), but I sure wouldn't have one from there again with that much single use plastic involved.More

I called into Columbus Cafe to buy lunch and coffee. While there seem to be several staff working,the service was slow. The date scone I ordered, crumbled, as the server tried to butter it and when I complained the same thing happened to a second...one as well. At this stage there were two staff members breathing over the food so in this current climate I decided to take the coffee (which was good) and leave, minus the scone! I did get my money back. The Cafe is well located, roomy and well staffed but it doesn’t work efficiently. I hope you have a better experience than I did if you decide to visit.More

Called in for lunch, was not late but little choice left in the cabinet so husband ordered off the board menu. We asked if both meals could come out together. After a mid length wait I got mine, and ate it before it got cold.Was...pretty much finished before the other meal arrived which was after my husband went up to check they had not forgotten his order, as was a long wait by that stage (about 40 - 45 mins) Would probably chose to try somewhere different next timeMore

The food was great, the service was slow, very slow. Also it was cold outside and the waitress went outside to serve a table but didn’t bother to close the door behind her outbound or inside- twice. Lesson is don’t come here if you don’t...have ages to wait for service.More

Arranged to meet a friend there. Good rendezvous. Coffee and nibble fine. Regretfully the place is poorly designed. Doors were ill fitting. Constant drought,

I will make a trip across town for the Columbus brunch. The paleo breakfast is my usual and is always perfect but this time I went for the corn fritters. Perfect amount of food, good price and great taste. He had the big breakfast and...loved it. I can't wait for my next brunch date so I can go back.More
