    Decent food, but disappointed by the service rendered at Ten Square Cafe. Booked a table of 6 to celebrate my birthday and was basically chased out within 1h 15m of being there. The cafe was noisy and the staff looked to be stressed and moody. Not a great ambience if your intentions are to come here and have an enjoyable time with friends.

    Tucked away in a quiet side street in the food lovers' quarter of Hardware Lane was an ideal way to start the morning! Great coffee and the chilli crab scrambled eggs were delicious.

    My husband had the eggs benny and I had the avocado...oh my goodness...both meals were absolutely amazing!!! I don't know how they put so much flavour into our dishes, but I relished every bite! Then on top of that, the amazing barista put a unicorn and a seahorse on our lattes!! Perfection!

    I have to admit, I am struggling to understand why this place gets such good reviews. Firstly, it was noisy, with music pumping at a level I'd consider annoying at 9am. The vibe was chaotic with people constantly coming and going and kitchen staff continually approaching and turning over tables. The table next to me was so close I felt I had to lean in and whisper to my wife so as not to include our neighbours in our conversation. It was impossible to enjoy a coffee that was served luke warm, it seems they spent far too long on the latte art. They promptly provided me with a new coffee (and the lady next to me who returned hers also). Before I finished I was interrupted again to be told I had a strict 1 hour and fifteen minute booking, though this would start early as I arrived early. I promptly ordered to reduce the likelihood of rushing my meal with hopes the experience might redeem itself, but the food was just okay and it seemed the guy next to me agreed as he left half of it behind then complained as he was leaving. I must admit, his over cooked scramble looked most unappealing. The servings were small, they missed detail on the menu when describing the dish and my wife had to order additional sides to go with a plate of under cooked curly kale they called 'greens' (not pleasant as it scratches it's way down your throat). To be honest it was much calmer outside, would not recommend or return. Unfortunately another case of taking on more business than they can keep up with to reasonable standard. Goodbye $80 sub-standard breakfast and a thoroughly over-rated experience!

    Food was great overall! One meal was a little underflavoured and over salty but the other three were absolutely fantastic! Excellent service too. Would definitely recommend 👌🏻

    The food at Ten Square (I had the Sweet Potato Vegan Stack and my friend had the chicken and waffles) and the chai lattes were great, but the service was much less so. The initial server who got my chai was great, but he went off shift and the person who replaced him was pretty much MIA. We had to flag her down for everything we wanted to order, including a refill on our waters, every time. The last time I asked for a water refill she took so long to come back with the jug that we left before she did. Her attitude when we did get her attention was terrible. She was snooty and rude, and it was clear she didn't want to be there. As someone who worked in restaurants for years, I know how challenging the industry can be, but her lack of service was totally unacceptable.

    Fantastic food, great range (food and drinks) offering plenty of options for V and VG, which served our group of 7 perfectly. One of the group commented ‘best burger for a long time’ while others tucked in to healthy poke bowls. Drinks from fresh juices, tea and coffee range or booze if that’s your thing! Tucked away but close to Emporium. Would highly recommend - you can’t not find what you fancy!

    They got the booking wrong & seated us inside when I requested outside. I asked to be moved outside & they did eventually. They ran out of a few menu items which happens but the weren’t very interested in selling what was left. Won’t be returning, plenty of other nice cafes for lunch in the city.

    Service was quick considering how busy they were! Every dish we ordered was amazing, and I loved that they split the bill here too. Highly recommend the Benny and the Chilli Scramble (which actually does have a good bit of spice in it!)

    We waited We spent $120+ We ordered and then waited 30 minutes to be told our orders weren’t available So three of us watched one of us eat The excuse was “we’re busy” Not hospo busy but maybe most tables were turned over First and last attempt, especially when there are so many good options to support

    We were drawn to Ten Square by the perfectly varied menu (something for everyone!) which turned out to be delicious, but what really made the experience noteworthy was the comfortable ambience (sat outside) and extremely amiable staff! Staff were chill/unobtrusive while maintaining an air of confidence/competence. Just a lovely time all 'round :)

    The overall environment of the cafe was really nice and cosy. The staff were really friendly, making the atmosphere really comfortable. Despite this, our meals took a while to be brought out. We ordered about 10 minutes after we got there but did not receive our meals until 45 minutes later. Once we received our meals, some were overcooked. But depending on what we ordered, others were extremely tasty.
