The chopping block has a great selection for breakfast and love their smoothies, never really dined here for such but if the fare is as good as their morning offering I'm sure it would be a winner

Despite it being a busy Sunday morning, the service was very fast and the food fantastic. The menu is interesting and varied and the atmosphere very relaxed. It's a lovely place to enjoy a meal and conversation or just read a magazine if dining alone.

I ordered and paid for breakfast for eight people, it wasn't cheapest breakfast around and the acia bowl for was very small for $18 (compared to other times i have ordered it) I asked for my bacon to be well cooked as in crisp, but my bacon was the only one not cooked.

The menu is good for breakfast but possibly needs updating. When the specials are on these are the best value and tasting. We ordered scrambled eggs and they were more like an over cooked omelette but in saying this the bacon was very generous and well cooked. Coffee never disappoints

We went with our 2 children under 3. The food was served quickly and of high quality. Good service and child friendly. We were brought a child's activity bag as soon as we sat down.

We found the Chopping Block to be a pleasant eating place. The tables were spaced with elbow room. The menu is quite extensive, the service friendly and the food very good. Happy to recommend.

Everyone knows this place and goes there to meet friends. Service is prompt, staff courteous, and food okay. Not for banquets, perhaps, but great for quick and enjoyable coffee or snack.

My wife and I went here for lunch last week after a specialist appointment. The place looked inviting with a nice ambience. The special on the board jumped out at me, so I ordered it. Haloumi, chicken breast, red onion, avocado, rocket on toasted sourdough with aoli and dukkah. ($16.90). I specifically asked for no red onion and the staff... More

The coffee is very good and the savoury muffin was superb. Very casual and staff who listen to the order. Service was quick.
