Had pretty low expectations of finding a great coffee and food place near the Mantra Parramatta - but that hurdle was cleared well and truly by Circa. Food was pretty special and i think the avo smashmay be the best I have ever had. The placve is seriously busy though, particularly on the weekend and if it's raining they lose... More

Have got to give this place a 12 out of 10. It hadn't been recommended to me but I always do some research before I try a new (to me) cafe,restaurant etc. Met up with a local friend who was a bit reticent about the food on offer. My friend chose the French Toast (that looked like a Monet painting... More

Nice coffee and good atmosphere to spend time with friends. We had avocado smash and soy cappuccino where both were real satisfying.

Haven't been for a few months, not much has changed. Food is still very good, but I would like to see the menu change. Not sure if the service is quirky or a little aloof, it's a fine line. Coffee always comes out a little cold when dining in, but takeaway is fine. Food is always healthy and delicious though!

Not the best food I have ever had, very average food, nothing special. I got the ottoman eggs and on it the bread was very stale. Croissant was not fresh at all compare to the price you pay for, you can have better croissants in supermarket. Service needs a lot of improvement : we were a lot of people waiting... More

Had lunch with my granddaughter on Sunday, waited for a short time for a table to be allocated. The coffee was just what we ordered ice coffee, no cream just beautiful tasting coffee. Ordered our lunch which came out surprisingly quickly, all fresh ingredients, just a lovely little spot to have a quite luncheon. Parking in the nearby council car... More

The coffee was great and awesome if you want to eat outdoors. The atmosphere was great and had a little bit of a hipster vibe.

It was very busy mid week and yet we were able to obtain a seat at the rear of the building. Although the staff were concerned it would be too hot, a cool breeze flowed through the back door to keep us comfortable. It does not appear to be any air conditioning at this venue although they have ceiling fans.... More

First off, the coffee was beautiful. Our food took a little while to arrive but we came at the busiest time of the day and it also gave us an opportunity to sneak in another delicious coffee. Seriously, there are no words for how good the coffee is. We had the Ottoman Eggs and Avo Smash- perfect portion sizes, beautifully... More

An alleyway between buildings is what you will experience and no air conditioning. That's the bad news, the good is that the food is different, tasty, well presented and fabulous service by enthusiastic friendly staff.
