    We had a really lovely time here. The food was lovely and the staff were helpful. The only negative element was that there was a customer who was permitted to have her dog seated at the table with her and was eating from her plate. Happy to see dogs on the ground, but not at the table and using the crockery.

    A very pleasant outdoor dining experience. I particularly loved the visit from the blue tongue lizard. The food was a taste sensation and catered to all needs. The menu was enough and the choices varied. I would definitely recommend, and will dine there again.

    This was a work lunch prior to a meeting nearby and I have seen this cafe but never stopped. I will definitely stop again as I loved the atmosphere and hoping the weather is warmer to sit outside in the courtyard. Loved the quaintness of the inside sitting areas.

    Ive always loved this cafe but not a fan of their new alternate bread option and they wouldn’t let us sub it for a normal bread. They also wouldn’t let our friend with food intolerances change to a GF plain bread with eggs because they don’t do changes on weekends, which is disappointing. Won’t bother going again on a weekend with a group, stick to week days.

    First time dining at 8 Murray Street. Didn’t disappoint on all levels. Even got a coffee on the house for having to wait a little longer thank usual for meal than normal. My friend and I were enjoying our catch up that we didn’t even notice the time delay! Will be again.

    8 Murray Street is an inner city northside treasure. The staff clearly enjoy their work environment and we are always treated like friends when we return. The food is creative, interesting, full of flavour and disgustingly healthy! Ask for an Apricot 8 Murray Street Bellini style cocktail, containing fruit from their own apricot tree in the courtyard. It's amazing! We love this place.

    Great food, drinks and vibes are what 8 Murray do. It's always a great place to go, that said, they are very popular and their kitchen gets easily overwhelmed so service of drinks and food can be very slow. Staff are very friendly and helpful nonetheless.
