We recently had breakfast here and wow, what an excellent eggs benedict. It came with slices of freshly grilled salmon and quite honestly it is the best I have had in a long time. Really good service and very large iced coffees finished us off.

A traditional cafe presenting a terrific range of breakfast, lunch and treats. Friendly fast service. Obviously a favourite with the locals!

Been here a few times, convenient location with pretty basic takeaway/cafe meals. Coffee very average but looking at other coffee outlets in town, it would be about the second best, to be polite. Very basic menu, nothing very interesting, I guess that's why the staff don't look very enthusiastic.

I was greeted and shown to my table promptly. Great breakfast menu and decent menu choices. Coffee came out quick and breakfast was soon to follow. Prices fine

The atmosphere at this little coffee shop is always pleasant and friendly the staff always greet you with a smile and will accommodate in everyway possible... the food is amazing with so many awesome choices from all day breakfasts to the biggest yummiest Theo's burger, which is often a favourite for myself and my partner. We love coffee, juices and... More

Come to Theo's everytime I visit Emerald. Great large meals at great prices. Inside and outside dining. Today i had bacon and eggs with a Boost Juice from his juice bar menu, with a takeaway Caramel latte.

No such things as a small serve. All the meals are sufficient to keep you going all day long. Very tasty and a nice place to eat.

I loved this place so much I had lunch here 2 days in a row. The food is super fresh and the servings very generous. I had Chicken and salad sandwich which was huge, stuffed with moist roast chicken, crisp salad and fresh bread.

Saturday morning brekkie before hitting the road. With few options available (but more than I had first realised -- see my review of Luv-a-Coffee), I chose Theo's. Walking in the door, I was immediately asked if I were going to sit down -- almost as if they were expecting me to do a U-turn and walk away quickly. I said... More

After reading such a well composed response from the owner of the Capricornian Restaurant regarding you rating them a 1 out of 5, which might I add is just ludicrous as their restaurant is my favourite and my families favourite restaurant to dine at in Emerald!! I too felt compelled to respond to your long winded nonsense! Firstly I smell... More
