Great food and atmosphere - service could be better - Edit

We went here on a Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised to see that they had a special event from 12-4 not advertised in their usual opening times. They had lovely tables set outside in the sun and live music, which was great. We ordered three of their $5 street-food style menu items: nachos, falafel wrap and arancini, as well as a $10 bottle of kombucha on tap. The food was great, especially the arancini which were SO creamy. The servers did seem a little disorganised (quoted the wrong amount, and then forgot to give change) but they fixed it when we pointed it out, and the food did take a while to come as they had a fair few customers. I'd return as the food was really good, but perhaps don't come if you're in a rush!

Pros: Delicious food, Well priced, Nice atmosphere - cute plants everywhere

Cons: A little slow, Servers need a bit more practice

All vegan gem - Edit

Coffee Whole is one of those places i had never heard of until recently but i'm so so glad that i was awakened to this little gem.
I'll keep it simple and short... This is a COMPLETELY VEGAN cafe, not a "vegan options" cafe. If you are a vegan or even a vegetarian i highly recommend visiting and supporting this awesome business. Vegans doing great vegan things :)

Food is next level (as seen in photos).
Coffee is great!
I have been more than 5 times now and i will keep returning. Highly recommend!

Pros: ALL VEGAN, Great coffee, Amazing creative vegan dishes. SO much flavour!

Good food and better coffee - Edit

This place was really good. Coffee was amazing, food was lovely. The only complaint I have about the decor is that one of their chairs nearly pinched off my finger but it didn't so who cares. Ahem.

So first off: I had their loaded sweet potato fries with mushroom, avocado, beetroot dressing and cauliflower aioli. All very good. Calling them 'fries' feels a bit disingenuous (they're really big wedges of sweet potato) but they were cooked perfectly. I feel the beetroot sauce and aioli could have stood to be a bit stronger in flavor, but the avocado was perfect. Lemon and avocado is a fantastic flavor combination and the green peas added in worked a treat. All in all the food was very good.

The coffee was perfection. Bonsoy latté; temperature was hot without being mouth-burning, flavor was balanced between a nice strong coffee taste while still being mellowed by the milk. Nailed it. Best coffee I've had in a very long time. Presented beautifully, in a glass tumbler rather than a coffee cup; surprising and excellent choice.

That said, the aesthetic of coffee whole is both very excellent executed and possibly a mistake given its location. Berkeley Vale is very much your classic suburban residential area (and in a nice concession to that there is a small children's play area); Coffee Whole shares a small strip mall with a laundromat, a financial advice company, a hairdresser and a property broker. This kind of pushes up against its spiritualist/vintage aesthetic and that kind of detracts a little bit from the vibe: The chosen aesthetic and the location feel constantly at odds. If I went again I'd probably choose to sit facing away from the windows to absorb myself properly. Still, I can't help but wonder if a poppier, more lively aesthetic might not be more fitting with its surrounds.

But this is nitpicking. The food was good. I had, excuse me, a damn good cup of coffee. The staff were extremely friendly and understanding. And the aesthetics of the place feel wrongfooted to me but are executed very well nonetheless. I will be back, make no mistake.

Pros: Delightful coffee, Small but varied vegan menu, Children's play area

Cons: A bit echoey inside; noise carries, Outdoor areas much less appealing than inside
