A cafe to last in Eastwood is special. Not many of these older places have survived but Homers has. The staff are very friendly and the quality of food is great. Over the years I've been many times and everything is consistent.

Homer's cafe was my favourite restaurant in the hills area - serving Newtown-style cafe food in a cosy comfortable environment at very affordable prices. The service was always lovely and friendly and willing to accommodate customised requests. My go-to order was the gourmet sandwich on wrap bread, which I also tried on a few of their other breads (they offered... More

Me and my wife visited Homer's cafe for lunch. The food was excellent. I had spaghetti bolognese and my wife had chicken risotto. The food was excellent. The things that needs attention is the staff attitude, no smiles and no enthusiasm. The look of the cafe is also run down. Would have given it 5 star if it had not... More

I like this shop has very traditional original feeling. I feel like travel back to 30 years ago. Cakes are very yummy. We asked them about allergy ingredients and they are very honest.

Older type cafe, could do with a makeover. I had the catch of the day which was a grilled fillet of fish and chips for $9.80 with can of soft drink (lunch deal). Nothing special, dish looked thrown together, although the taste was fine. Service not too friendly (no smiles) but fast and efficient so I can forgive that. They... More

Let customers enjoy the experience ! Staff needs to be trained in food ethics & table setting. See picture. Also don't rush customers in ordering - smile - have a passion for your job. However Food & Coffee was great. Just the delivery of things Your number of pax will then increase -

I ordered the chocolate obsession and wow was fantastic, hubby had the homer's deep fried mars bars and loved the choc melted goodness, but then became too rich afterwards, might share it next time around. Overall dessert was great and cheap,... More
