Reviews for Cafe Raeward
11th August 2013
Went out for a Sunday brunch.
Firstly, they forgot one of our meals. They apologised for this and offered a complimentary beverage. I asked for a soy hazelnut latte.
The drink that came was a normal latte, not made with soy. I did not realise this until it had been half consumed – not useful for somebody who is lactose intolerant.
My friend then nearly cut her lip on a water glass that was chipped.
Finally the second meal arrived – without the side of bacon as requested. We decided not mention it, but when paying it became clear that the extra bacon had been put on the first meal.
When paying for our meal, the cashier was less than friendly and incompetent – as couldn’t put the transaction through.
It was not even overly busy – four errors – would not recommend.

Lunchtime… busy so obliged to sit in the children’s play area. Unruly chilldren all over the place somewhat spoilt the lunch.
Pumpkin filo wrap: hard par-boiled pumpkin, chunks of raw garlic, vivid-green yoghurt sauce added much needed moisture to an otherwise dry, chewy and rather bland (other than garlic-breath) dish.
Chick pea salad: a bowl of brine-chickpeas and some over cooked aubergine, hardly a salad.
Orange cake: stodgy cake with artificial-flavoured orange icing.
Chocolate brownie: can’t go wrong here, but what tiny wedges.
Coffee: not bad, not great, but smooth.
Would have coffee again, but no cabinet food. Can’t understand why it’s so busy.
However shop does sell excellent aged beef… but this review is just for the cafe.

Absolutely fabulous! The food and coffee are great and the service is first class!. Considering how busy it is, the staff are attentive and the cafe is clean and tidy. It is so refreshing to get such high quality service, where the customer is number one. Well done and keep up the great work to all the team.

One of the best dining experiences Ive had in a while. Came for lunch on 18/02, service was exceptional all the staff made a point of welcoming us without being overbearing. Cafe was clean, tidy and spacious. Cabinets had a huge selection of fresh and reasonably priced food aswel as the menus and special board. Got offered a free fluffy for our 8 month old daughter, well stocked toybox and plenty of clean highchairs were available aswel as a playground outside. our farmers ‘big breakfasts’ were $17.50 and huge we couldn’t finish it all. coffee and smoothies were good.
