The meals we ordered took a little longer than expected to arrive but the cafe was busy at the time. Both meals were delicious, however felt lacking conpared to the price paid. Overall very good though and we would return, just be prepared to pay a little more than for some other cafés in the area.

Went for a work do. Ordered lamb and could not cut it as it was so tough. Got a steak knife and still couldn't cut it. When the chef's wife came over and asked about the meal I said it was terrible. She said that this was the first night they had used a new product from SFF and didn't... More

A great food experience, with a wonderful menu. How do you choose when the menu ranges so widely and includes excellent vegetarian meals too? I've visited Cafe Rue before, several times, and have never been disappointed. The food this time was superlative, a salmon crepe, with a delicious sauce. Beautifully served, wait staff attentive and helpful. Thanks guys, see you... More

Had west coast whitebait and coconut scallops both dishes were excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The chef came out after service was completed and we had a good chat to him who pointed out interesting places to visit. Would recommend this as a really good place for couples or families

I love the food and ambiance of this cafe, the staff are friendly and helpful and there is usually parking close by. You can sit in a window seat and watch the world go by while tucking into an eggs benedict or a full breakfast yum, yum.

Eight of us dined at Cafe Rue last week. Everyone of us had the most delicious meal from fish,lamb shanks & chicken. Beautifully cooked and presented. Starters of a selection of breads & dips were generous.Also the staff were friendly and tentative. I would recommend a booking here

Having visited here several times for morning coffee and yummy scones, we thought we would try it for lunch. We were really disappointed with the food. The Thai beef salad was a mass of iceberg lettuce with some bits of beef and crushed up instant noodles, the lettuce was the strongest flavour in the dish. It wasn't nice at all.... More

Friendly staff, very tasty vegetarian option, stuff capsicum yum. We also required a gluten free meal, they were very helpful and checked the ingredients thoroughly. This is very reassuring.
