Lunch here was disappointing with several meals not quite up to scratch. A kids cheese toastie made with American cheese on hard bread that was deemed inedible; calamari that was tasteless; underdone fries; eggs with no run in their yolks ... Service was okay. It would get a 2 for lunch.By contrast, morning tea here was great - good drinks and a delicious spread of pastries and other sweet snacks. A 4 for morning tea.Not cheap.

Visited for morning coffee and pastries. The pastries were excellent and the coffees topped off a very pleasant morning catch-up with friends

We found this to be a pleasant experience. The soft shell crab brioche bun was excellent as was the coffee. It can get very busy, so best to book. Staff are well trained. Quite a lot of variety. Must be a few sweet tooth customers around here as a large array of sweets. Overall , recommended

We chose a very busy day to drop by for a casual birthday lunch for 3 people, fortunately calling ahead to reserve a table. Easy to see why this cafe is so popular: lovely environment, beautiful gardens to wander through even without a visit to the stunning galleries. The senior staff appear well trained but I think some of the more junior staff could be reminded to smile and be more enthusiastic, to show some interest when taking orders. We were warned when we placed our order that it was a busy day and to expect a delay of around 20 mins before our lunch would be served so started with a celebratory glass of prosecco. Our 3 meals were soup of the day, tomato, served with toasted sourdough, a burger and a beetroot salad with addition of smoked salmon. Lovely presentation and delicious meals, despite the expected delay. Previously I have had the coffee here, which is excellent, and the selection of cakes and pastries is varied and something to please most tastes. $100 for 3 is a little pricey, especially for slow and less than friendly service but I would return as it has been better on previous visits. Delicious meals.

I ate here with friends and the food was fantastic, I had the Lamb shoulder and it was a very pleasant meal. The coffee was very good and most of all the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

We ate here with friends after visiting the museum so we were all in a very good mood. The cafe is no longer managed and staffed by Shannon Bennett and it's simply called 'Cafe Heide'. My hamburger was excellent and the quality of the meat used and other fillings was very impressive. If you don't like your burgers very rare, though, do let them know in advance. The chips were also excellent. My wife was really pleased by the adventurous and very pretty beetroot salad dish she ordered. It looked, and tasted, a treat. Service was friendly and prompt and the eating area was attractive. There are also two outdoors areas for dining. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

The waitress seating us was not particularly friendly, tried to make us sit near the door to the bathrooms when there were plenty of nicer tables available. Had to work hard to get attention to give our order. Once ordered, the meals arrived surprisingly promptly, but drinks were another 5 minutes after the meal and a reminder.I had the chicken and freekah salad, which I liked very much, although the chicken was very salty. My child had the kids chicken (same tenderloin strips, generous serve for a child but way too salty) and a serve of garden vegetables, which were lovely and one of the few occasions when paying for a side was worth it.Later we went back for a hot chocolate, which was nice. The cakes looked great but we were full - we will try them next time.
