Our Customer’s Reviews

Stumbled upon this awesome cafe today, almost didn’t go in as I am not a coffee drinker and thought that’s what it was all about given the name. What a wonderful surprise, the food and drinks were sublime! Highly recommend the Lamb Kofta Balls and salad. Oh my god the Limonana is to die for! I will definitely be back! Gorgeous range of food, drinks and coffee of course!

Finally after years of trying to find an amazing coffee combined with exceptional service we found Benchtop Espresso! Every day is better when you start your day with a coffee made by the team at Benchtop

I visited for an early breakfast. This is a bustling little cafe with an extensive blackboard menu. ...
The coffee was exceptional and several different coffee beans were available. ... A visit to Lismore without a coffee at Benchtop Espresso would be a wasted trip.

Stopped by today and ordered a Turkish coffee - it bought back memories of other places travelled. Great selection of coffee / food, and staff friendly - will be back again.
