“Great little coffee shop”
Review of Gidget's Cafe

Gidget's Cafe
Ranked #6 of 45 Restaurants in Thirroul
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$25
Description: Gidget's Cafe was opened in June 2015 to provide THE BEST coffee accompanied with tHE best FOOD in the Northern Illawarra. Our reason d'etre "Good Food - Good Company - Good Life" - simple but something we strive each day to achieve. We are family friendly and have many seating formats starting from a single spot for that quick expresso to a table for 8 to cater for all. We are also now fully licensed so come in an try the craft beers on tap as well as a great selection of wines and spirits. Also open for Dinner Friday- Saturday evenings.

Came in with my mum, looking for a takeaway, but we decided to stay and eat our food there, since the cafe looked really nice and not too crowded. Service was really nice and friendly and food was delicious. My mushroom and leek arancini were delicious and my mum's pastry roll with spinach and ricotta was on spot as well. Both came with a fresh side salad. Perfect and just what you need for a warm summer day. Highly recommended.

This cafe is not good for big groups. Our group was seated outside at the back of the cafe next to smelly bins. Service was extremely slow with most food coming at least 1.5h-2h after ordering. Even cans of soft drink took an hour to come. We felt our orders were placed at the end of the queue as inside the cafe, turnover was quite quick. Even food in the display window that just needed to be reheated took 2h. Also, the messed up our orders getting the wrong dishes. Additionally, they didn't tell us food was out of stock until 1h later, and when we reordered a pie that was inside the display window, they also said that was out of stock , half an hour later. There was also limited variety of meals. We came here because of the good reviews and we left thoroughly disappointed.

10/10. Service was excellent as was the food. We shared a bunch of entrees with a wine before heading off to see a show. Every dish was amazing! Beautifully prepared and presented. Highly recommend.

We breakfasted at Gidget's three mornings in a row while on a long weekend in Thirroul. After stumbling on this cafe on our first morning, how could we not return! The coffee is delicious, the food good and the service very friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended!
