Toongabbie Cafe Reviews — Cafe Volare
Serge being a chef has taken the quality of the food in Toongabbie to a whole new level. When you ask for a little salad on the side, it’s a salad you would expect to pay $10 at club med for, but he includes it in the meal price. You can easily end up full for $10 thinking you just spent $20. Just ask for the schnitzel that is not on the menu and you will soon find out what I mean, certainly 5 star value for money.
The pizza is on at special times and he has even brought on a special pizza chef Con Aroyan just for this, pretty good and great value for money.
The coffee goes well with the breakfast menu, very strong and I find ordering a tea is good after a meal here as he has a great selection to choose from.
The inside and outside vibe and Décor
The best time to visit this place is early in the morning when the rays of sunshine are beaming into the café, you can choose from indoor or outdoor dining.
He is also open late so the afternoon can be a good time too. Décor inside displaying some funky chandeliers and big old comfy chairs.
If you feel like dessert you have come to the right place as he has Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and some unique Italian desserts that are to die for. I’m not just talking it up, my wife sends me down on my day off work just to get the Tiramisu. Unfortunately for me he had just sold out the day before but he has a wide selection of other treats that are a must try.
What is good about Serge is that he is the owner and operator and doesn’t skimp on the service. He maybe just one man but he is a man of many talents and no matter how many people are in the cafe at any given time he still manages to service them within a good time frame and everyone leaves smiling.
Serge is a great guy to talk to and because this café is nice, quiet and hidden away, he is always good to have a chat. Is a no-nonsense type of guy, straight to the point and loves to see people enjoying his food. I think the service is better than some pricy restaurants I go to these days. The great thing he is there all the time so you don’t have to always learn a new person’s name every time you go there if you get my drift.
This is a great place to have meetings and gatherings of let’s say 20 to 30 people at any given time just let Serge know in advance.
Here at Elders Toongabbie and Kings Langley we had our Christmas lunch here and everyone was surprised about the quality of the food and the service.
Serge had only just recently taken over from the previous owners and the café was left a little run down.
Most people don’t discover this place because of it’s location but I believe it works to it’s advantage and that’s why he said “I didn’t want a cafe in a busy hustle and bustle location, I want people to feel relaxed and that they can escape from it all”.
Excepts all card types and doesn’t hold you to a minimum transaction. You can order online through menu log or through his website.
So don’t write this cafe off give it a try I think you be pleasantly surprised and I’m sure you’ll become repeat customers, I know I did.
