    Food was really good, atmosphere was relaxing. But what let this place down was the lack of service. We were welcomed in and seated by a lovely lady (who in turn was the one who finished our sale and was also very polite). But the service in between was almost non existent. We asked about the coffee, the girl replied with ‘mmm I am really not sure, I don’t really drink it’. Fair you don’t drink it. But if you work in a Roasters, surely you should learn the basics. Then trying to get some service to ask for table salt or another coffee, I found myself standing up to signal over a staff member. This all happened around 2pm - there where more staff than customers (we were also a booking). This place does really deserve a 7 as their food is really good. Their coffee is delicious and their menu caters for a good ranged tastes.

    Great coffee, Comfortable seating - a solid start. Saffron scented rice podding dish exceeded my expectations. I found the noise level just a bit high. Nice music choices though.

    The atmosphere of the restaurant was very good, the service excellent, the crockery beautiful, the four drinks they were all excellent but of the 4 dishes we ordered we did not like the potato hash was overtaste rosemary flavor, the corn fritters were not crispy enough and the flavor of the whipped goat cheese was stronger than the flavor of the fritters.

    What a surprise. I have passed this place many times and never thought to go until a friend recommended I try it. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the place. Very spacious, trendy and surrounded by lovely vertical gardens. Loved it and will definitely return.

    I consider the bathroom floor cleaning appearance sub-standard especially in the corners.I reported this to the manager who stated they had trouble cleaning them and that they were cleaned every second day. I would think that a restaurant toilet floor would need cleaning at least daily

    Really great space, great service, great menu. Coffee was excellent. Only issue was corn fritters were definitely on the small side, more like an entree than a meal.

    Friendly staffs and nice atmosphere with spacious areas. Food was tasty and portions was big. Dog friendly outdoor sit was good as well. Dessert looks so good, but couldn’t try this time. Definitely go back again thanks

    Delicious food even though they had run it of my first two choices. Love the atmosphere inside with the vertical gardens and circle light.

    The food was OK but nothing special while the coffee was a bit week.

    A good choice of menu items catering for the health conscious to those wanting to indulge. Favourite dish is the waffle dessert. Nice open warehouse space with a cute courtyard with greenery everywhere.

    The food was ok, but if the menu states 'half an avocado' for $4.50, it's not ok to substitute a blob of green mush that clearly came out of a caterer's bucket.

    Friendly staff and good menu, excellent coffee and a great dog friendly section, not that this applied to our group, but love dogs. The food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen, but overall would definitely recommend and will return to sample other menu items.

    This was our second visit to Undercover Roasters and we thoroughly enjoyed our family brunch this time. Booking online was easy, and we were shown to a nice comfy booth straight away. The cafe is in a huge, airy industrial-style warehouse filled with greenery, and it has a delightful outside garden area along the side of the building (dog-friendly). The coffee is top notch and we bought some beans to take home. Undercover has one of those menus where you want to try everything (hence the return visit!). The serves are generous, terrific value, and a little bit different from the usual fare. Don't miss the sweet potato French fries. We chatted to two staff who were incredibly friendly, and we loved our bubbly, smiling waitress. The food took a little longer than we were expecting considering the venue wasn't packed, but this is a minor quibble. We will be back for sure!

    This restaurant has a great ambience. The interior is beautiful, modern, and sleek. Has lots of pot plants and the songs are nice too, makes you feel relaxed. Ordered Iced latte, Iced long black, Chicken & waffles, and Sweet repeat waffles. Total 50.50 AUD. The service was extremely quick, our food came almost together with the beverage. The staff were attentive and helpful. The food was good, and the presentation was spectacular. Recommended!

    What a great find! Terrific spot for a casual coffee, brunch or even a meeting. Lots of interesting menu choices that will please those who prefer to stick to traditional fare but also plenty of interesting tastes to try.

    Great staff and very good service, the fitout is lovely with lots of greenery and very spacious - indoor and outdoor seating. Coffee was excellent and the food very good, but a lot of flavour going on with the zucchini corn fritters, the shrooms were a standout

    Really cool new place in Abbotsford. The staff were super friendly and the food was superb. Chilli scramble was divine, such soft and creamy eggs. Will be returning to our new local to try more of the menu soon.
