Description: Antipodean Cafe only uses quality coffee beans roasted at our own Cafes by Indonesia's top specialty roaster, Merdeka Coffee. Why is our coffee so good? Because Merdeka Coffee only purchases coffee beans directly from our partners, who are small-holding growers, rather than going through the brokerage system. At Antipodean Cafe, we work hard to offer a uniquely "antipodean" style cafe food menu. Our favorites include a BLT on sour dough bread, double salmon fish cakes, Burmese shredded chicken salad and of course a range of delicious and healthy breakfast choices for all ages. Cake and biscuit choices include Carrot Cake, caramelised apple and cashew cakes, shortbread, raisin loaf, date cake and so much more! All our cakes are baked in-house using recipes handed down by famous Kiwi chefs (and relatives).

“Venue not so good....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

...as I dont like sitting in very cold air conditioning so prefer outdoors dining but not sitting on the pavement where occasionally one can get hassled. My main beef about this place is the acoustics - something really needs to be done as you truly cannot hear the person sitting across the table as there is too much background noise going on, especially when the coffee machine sets off. Shame about the venue as the food is excellent but I truly don't want to keep saying "pardon, I can't hear you" continuously throughout lunch.

“Brilliant place for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

The menu is on the wall which adds a tint of nostalgia as if you are in a typical Aussie place for breakfast . We had the big breakfast ( toast, bacon, mushroom, scrambled eggs and hash brown) . Delicious . Coffee was great too as I assume they make their own coffee. Service superb. Friendly staff. Price appropriate too! Tiip - ask for extra toast. The toast was extra delicious ( again prob made in house) but we didn't get a chance to order because we were too busy eating the mushrooms, scrambled eggs, bacon.....

It's not often you get to try something new. I ordered Burmese chicken salad - fantastic. Delicious flavours. for an afternoon visit, order the ginger caramel biscuit thing to go with coffee. Yum

“Great atmosphere, light food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

1. If u like breakfast type of savory food this is the place. A lot of light dishes which seems like side dishes

2. If u want a heavy meal, not the place to eat!

3. They said their chicken with asparagus was nice, tried it and thought it was an amateur dish. Like someone that just learned how to cook made it up. Very basic nothing glamorous.

4. Their menu is on the wall. Take a look at it before deciding, cause for the amount u pay it might just be more worth it to go to the mamak down the street.

5. If u like to eat a few side dishes as a meal, go to bodega right across.

6. Great atmosphere, but food is fairly average.
