Local to our place and a reliable all rounder for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bacon Avocado Sourdough is awesome for breakfast. Burger basket meals in the evenings worth a look too

Brunch with friends. This is also and arts centre and does have an arty, cool feel. I will definitely go back an see what else is on offer. We ordered, Eggy Benny with chorizo, scrambled eggs and toast and eggs royale. Delicious, good service and very good price. Recommended.

As good a place as you'll find in Croydon. Great atmosphere; locally owned and run; great coffee; great food and if you go to the Hoodoo's venue out the back you're sure to find some great live music in the evenings.

There is a female who works at the burger bar and she is fantastic! Whenever we travel into Croydon we make sure we go because her service is incredible! And so are the burgers!

Went for a hungover Sunday brunch at Hoodoos. Great eggs benny, fresh sour dough bread and the staple of any brunch, avocado. Reasonably priced, hopefully as Croydon continues to move up through the social rankings it stays true to its roots. It was good to see it busy with a constant steam of people coming in. Also check out the... More

We popped down on Saturday morning for a leisurely brunch as I'd been following Matthews Yard (venue) and Hoodoos (Café brand) on Instagram for sometime and the food looked great. The menu is awesome with so much choice (I have no special dietary requirements or allergies). I had the Get Stacked which was simply awesome! There's really not many brunch... More

I recently held my 50th birthday party at Hoodoos venue in Matthews Yard. The room has a warm welcoming atmosphere and is great if you prefer a more quirky setting than say a corporate type hotel or church hall. The facilities are all you need for a wonderful night. An excellent sound system, good lighting, small stage, tasty buffet and... More
