We've been eating at the Salvation Cafe for years and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious, great service and a fantastic setting if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of suburbia. I highly recommend the fish cakes for lunch.

On a lazy Sunday afternoon we decided to take my mother on an outing to one of her new favourite shops that just so happen to sit right next to SalvationCafe. We sat down for lunch and were immediately greeted by one of the friendliest and best servers I have ever had. Angela immediately made us feel welcome with her... More

Went there for lunch with the family. Has a decent atmosphere under the trees. The lunch menu is short but they had some tempting specials. Mexican burger was moist and had a great texture, while the taste was slightly above average. Wife caesar salad was great. The breakfast menu looked great and I'd recommend that rather than lunch if you're... More

LOVED every single breakfast, also the salvation cafe ice tea is to die for. Beautiful space for a Saturday morning boozy brunch or a meet-the-parents-in-a-public-space kinda place.

We loved absolutely everything about Salvation Cafe. The breakfast was amazing, the salvation benedict as well as the normal eggs benedict. The freshness of the ingredients was evident. Our waiter Kyle was also really friendly and gave us good service. The location in 44 Stanley is superb nestled away in a little corner. Will definitely be back!

The menu has something for everyone. The food is very tasty with wonderful flavour combinations. Everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch and the service was great too. It is a very busy venue but we were never ignored. I would definitely recommend it!

Salvation Café came recommended and when my friend suggested having breakfast there, I was delighted. The service was attentive, the menu stacked with unusual dish choices. We sat outside and it was peaceful and cosy. No overpowering background music and grating sounds of juice and coffee blenders, just bliss. I tried the creamy scrambled eggs and it was a pleasing...

Where else can you get combos for breakfast! I was spoilt for choice, so had the most delicious combo of eggs Benedict and savory French toast. Great coffee too.

Hi Dobz, It's good to know that our food and coffee hit the spot. Our breakfast combos are definitely a hit, but don't tell everyone :-). Next time have the sweet duo (benedict with sweet french toast), or the royal duo (salmon benedict with sweet french toast). Remko, Salvation Cafe More
