Great for high quality coffee in this modern grunge cafe. An eclectic mix of vintage furniture and clientele. Great for quick meal or snack though the main attraction is the awesome coffee.

We visited for two coffees and cake. One coffee arrived had to go up to counter and reorder mine as no one could locate it. Waited again and when it finally arrived the waiter said I had only waited 11 minutes and they were busy....More

Bad everything. Slow, too cool for school and/or high staff.. the ugly, sticky mismatched furniture on wobbly tables is just gross. Walk in and the clientele seem to 'catch' the staff attitude and glare at you while you go about your coffee-ing. It's just unpleasant.

My husband and I went there on 27th April for a coffee and toasted sandwich. It took the guy at the cash register at least 15 minutes to take our order of 1 small cappuccino, 1 medium flat white and 2 toasted ham, cheese, tomato...More

A cold reception by one staff member didn't give a good first impression, however the other staff were friendly and helpful. The food and coffee was acceptable but not special.

Great for a coffee or brunch. Really good coffee in a hipster retro environment. Has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

This place needs more staff. And perhaps some training for those that are already employed. I'd not normally visit Suspension but as my "Go-To" cafes are all closed over the Christmas break my hand was kind of forced on the matter. When they opened 10+...More

The friendliness of their service provided to their regulars, upon observation, significantly dwarfed the friendliness shown to me, though this could have been unintentional. The muffin I had was average, being also obviously catered by a service, not the cafe. The coffee was not on...More
