Delicious meal for a late family lunch. Excellent service and serving sizes. Our new local! We tried a burger, wrap and some of the Cronut desserts and we were delighted across the board. Even though we were close to closing time, we felt able to take our time and were very well looked after from seating through to settling the bill. Thanks to all

"I could not have been more impressed by the friendly staff, excellent service and fantastic food. I was keen to check out Table 1 from their Facebook page popping up in my feed, and they didn't disappoint!

My favourite cafe in Lake Macquarie and Newcastle! The food here is INCREDIBLE! Their diverse and interesting menu has so many options, but I usually always pick the waffles. The staff are super friendly and attentive and they are always happy to cater to dietary requirements. I always have a great dining experience when coming to T1E.

I'm from Sydney and this place has the best breakfast I've ever had. Very large portions. A very busy place you may have to wait to be seated but it moves very quickly. Literally minutes to wait. The staff were very friendly and attentive. As was the owner. Coffees were superb too. Would come back again and again.

Can't talk these guys up enough. George is the King of Customer Service and is always so welcoming. My mum and I come here as often as we can because the menu is great and the staff are great. We feel like we have really become part of their 'local family'. Portion sizes are fantastic and prices are competitive. Love your work guys, keep it up 🙂
