It is always nice to go to Kiss the Koala, and yesterday was not over busy which was good. Staff are always very welcoming. Much as we like the menu we would like to see some new or different menu choices, and maybe some more pastries, croissants etc. when not wanting a full breakfast, brunch or lunch.

We love Kiss the koala, been here many times. This time we came with friends, and they also enjoyed the food and loved the restaurant. / My only side note that is not a negative feedback just some constructive one is that the koala brunch seemed to be smaller at this occasion

I love this place and every visit has been a great experience. Emilia and her team are lovely, the vibe is spot on and the food is delicious! I could eat that chicken and waffle dish all day every day... but it's better left as a treat. Make sure you book as it gets busy, but just make sure you visit and I promise you will love it.

This place is amazing! Great menu, lovely staff and a very cool atmosphere, I will most certainly be going back now I’ve discovered it! There were so many things I wanted to try! We ordered the breakfast waffle and the avocado on sourdough- both were delicious! They are family friendly too. I would definitely recommend!

Loved the food and the whole concept. Thought only giving one poached egg with the waffle was too little, should have been two. Apart from that, everything was great.
