Great cakes, wraps, juices and coffee. Especially love the 'health loaf'. Friendly staff, and very good customer service, best cafe in Smithfield.

Friendly staff served up seriously delicious food. I had the bacon breakfast wrap with additional baby spinach. The relish had just the right amount of spice. My hubby raved over his light breakfast with additional smoked salmon and avocado. Perfectly runny eggs and quality ingredients. Chai latte with almond milk was good too.

The server (a young girl with long brown hair, possibly Canadian) was an absolute delight. When I asked for a gluten free sandwich, she asked if I was a coeliac because she wanted to make sure it was prepared correctly. The sandwich was great. Ham and salad but they filled it up because gluten free bread is actually very small... More

I have tried breakie and lunch at this little gem and food and coffee is consistently good and so is the value for money! The wraps are yum! bacon breakkie wrap, poached eggs with chutney and the salads are sooo fresh. Friendly bunch , My daughters fav is the tropical smoothie dairy free made with coconut water!

Didn't have a coffee because of poor review so had a smoothie which was more the consistency of a milkshake. Not enough ice cream (only 2 small scoops) and had ice in it which is a definite no no in a smoothie. Service a bit slow as the assistant was trying to take orders as well as do cold drinks... More

Coffee at Cumquat is great as long as the owner isn't making it! He would benefit from a barista course as he is killing a reputable coffee bean and his money wouldn't be lost on a course in customer service either.

Great spot for a quick catch up with friends over coffee. Their dirty chai (chai latte with coffee) is YUMMY!! Bacon open grill is also delicious. Service is good.
