Reviews of Bilgola Deli Cafe
I have visited only 3 times over 3 years. I so want to love this cafe but find each visit somewhat underwhelming.
Good space for mummy groups
Plateau needs a cafe ( just wish it was a really good one so I didn't feel the need to go down the hill to Avalon/Newport )
Always polite and friendly service
Frozen meals available in large fridges c/o Corella catering which I think is connected to this cafe. I have not tried any based on my experience in cafe but I must admit I have not heard anyone say anything bad about the catering.
Large range of sweets
Hot hot hot coffee. I judge a place by its coffee and my personal pet hate when I buy a coffee ( which I do alot) is when its so hot it burns your tongue. So hot you can't hold it in a take away coffee cup without needing to put it down. I think when its this hot it burns the coffee.
Dirty tables. Place was empty on recent visit and half the tables had not been wiped down following the table being cleared. U then noticed how dirty the kids toys were. I prefer no toys if the toys available are not clean. I then don't need to argue with my kids as to why they can't play with the toys.
I have had one meal and a few sweets here - not bad but not great either based on my few purchases.
With a bit more attention this place could be so much better and have the plateau residents keep it fuller. Just my opinion, as I said I really want to like this place.
Absolutely disappointment in the service at the deli, am a local resident. Went here to enjoy a bite with my family ordered two coffees and pancakes with bacon, as well as a toasted wrap. After a 45 + minute(more like an hour +) wait our food arrived. The wrap wasn't even toasted. Most disgraceful is the deli was not busy, lots of staff on and not one person apologized. Am disgraced with this service will definitely not recommend to anyone.
My family and I went to Bilgola Deli for brunch on Sunday. The coffee is as good as it gets.. and exactly how we ordered it! We had the big breakfast and were very happy to enjoy the fresh eggs and bacon. The staff were friendly and even though you have to order at the counter the service was professional and fast
