Best eggs Benedict I’ve had for a while. The ham was good quality unprocessed leg ham and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Good coffee. The cakes and other treats looked delicious and took a lot of effort to pass up! This might be my new Saturday morning brunch spot :)

Lower East is a really good cafe in the heart of Wollongong. It is normally quite busy however the staff are always very accommodating with seating and provide efficient and polite service. The food and coffee are both high quality with the Eggs Benedict one of the best I have had with a generous serving of a unique but tasty hollandaise sauce. Would highly recommend.

We had a very nice feed. The staff seemed to get a bit flustered when several big groups turned up at once, and they made a stuff up with some of the meals, but they recovered well and we enjoyed the food, coffees and service.

I had their version of the big breakfast, which was filling and cooked perfectly.

Probably one of the best cafes in Wollongong.

Visited Lower East for Sunday morning hangover breakfast as we were wanting to try all of their new Vegan options. We were not disappointed!
Both my Friend and I had the Incredibowl, and it was so delicious! The Tofu was definitely the highlight of the dish!
The coffee was just as yummy, along with the juices that we ordered to regain sober-ness.

Would visit again and again!

Nothing worse than being served burnt toast, oh wait a minute, yes there is, it’s when they serve it to you with the burnt side down. I’m not sure what they were thinking but burnt toast and fried eggs with yolks that are not even close to runny made for a very poor start to the day. Absolute rubbish.
