This cafe was a welcome sight given the wind. The staff were ok but the chef was friendly. The fish was delicious!

If you are hungry and looking for a place to fill big tummy then this is the place to be. They do big delicious meals. Staff are friendly enough and I've noticed lady at the bar seems to know most people coming in to the place.

Glasines is a great place for casual dining. The food is good, quick to come out and you can't beat the prices. Friendly staff.

Called into Glasines cafe restaurant to escape the cold rain. Definitely not a restaurant, more like a gambling place and Bar. Not so impressed with the solo staff members attitude, a smile would have been nice. Don't like being treated like a door mat. Food very limited to cake and coffee.

We called in for the early bird roast special (only $10.90!) and had a delicious meal. Friendly, helpful staff made for a very pleasant family meal.

Went here for coffee to escape the rain with my mother. The focus seems to be on the bar and its patrons but the service was still efficient. It didn't have a great ambience so we didn't linger. Would probably not visit again.

A bit of a grim place. Most of the people seemed to be here to throw money away on pokie machines... ot was all a bit depressing really. The staff were nice, and the coffee was ok... but I would not go back. Kust a seedly atmosphere.

I took my mum and daughter to Glasinos for lunch on Mothers Day. What an amazing delicious meal. It was so good that we ordered another dish to take home to dad. Staff were lovely and it was just a lovely Mothers Day lunch. It was great value - Thanks so much.

I liked the freshness of the food. Menu was very good. Very welcoming and happy staff. I loved the placemats. Old bits of news clippings laminated. Good idea. I will be returning for sure.
