Just stopped off on the way home for some coffees, a yummy chai and a hot chocolate.. then saw the cabinet food and purchased a very nice venison pie - possibly the best pie I've had in a long time and a slice. Food I saw going out looked really delicious. I found the service perfectly acceptable and the vibe... More

Glad you enjoyed Providores and as you say your lose for choosing not to return for the way I reply to some reviews. People seem to think they can go on line, use a pysdynom and be as rude as they like and tell 1/2 truths or total lies about my staff, partner and Cafe and I have to accept... More

A good place for a weekend breakfast. Choice of cabinet food - chicken curry filo, smoked salmon stack sandwiches etc, to gourmet pies and great cake selection to the menu board, there is something to cater for all tastes. All produce seems to be locally sourced and of a very good quality. The scrambled eggs were so tasty, very creamy... More

There is absolutely no atmosphere, decor very dated, food very average, will not be going back. Staff were okay but not over friendly.

Obviously Providores didn't suit you, no problems just go somewhere else as is your right. Just a bit petty and small minded to have a moan about it on line especially when our cafe has many regulars that keep us busy and guess what you won't be greatly missed. OH NO sounding petty and small minded like you. Smack my... More

There is consistently good food at this cafe (especially the health stack) but unfortunately the management do not exactly encourage you to return. They are rude and grumpy with very little tolerance for anything slightly different like large groups or a changed order. It isn't necessarily their obligation to accommodate them but it is quite telling that of every place... More

Providores is the biggest cafe in the Mount and is consistently busy with mainly regulars and customers that have had Providores recommended to them. With big groups we do ask for no changes to the menu so we can get the great food as you state cooked in a orderly and quick fashion ( hence why we have a menu... More

I tried coffee here and a few salads and sweets. I have never been disappointed. Staff is friendly, shop lacked some atmosphere.

A good all round eating out experience.The staff were pleasant and courteous. The food was well presented and off an acceptable standard considering the price paid. Service was timely and efficient. The only downside, whilst the toilet facilities were clean and tidy, they sure could do with a complete makeover.

This used to be one of my favourite places to get a coffee. Over the past 6 months this place's service and coffee has really gone down hill. You honestly feel like your business is just not welcome. Coffee is bitter and not great. Pies are over priced and empty of filling. You get a better pie at the Bakery... More

I have bad news for you Suzy, mummy & daddy lied when they told you the customer is always right and no you can not have everything you want in life ( the front slice included) and that writing a overly long rant still will not get you the front slice.
