Review of Spoke & Stringer by Jamie Druitt

Great food but they are always super arrogant and disorgnaized. They often say we're fully booked when they're actualty empty with tables on hold without guests. Outside there is little shelter from the sun, or rain but their answer to buying a few simple umbrellas like every other cafe is that their super busy and don't need to do anything "we're always busy".. it's empty today and most days of the week.. The weekend is busy but still uncomfortable sitting outside in direct heat. Food and coffee is the only redeemable quality of this place, it's great. Not being able to get a table due to a disorganized booking system is just silly in this day and age. I've been going here for a year and it's impossible to politely speak with them. Not expecting them to listen or change from this review but you've got an awesome thing going, why not capatalise on your food and reputation, perhaps double/triple your revenue with a few simple changes? Being busy on the weekend alone is great - why not push the weekday traffic?

UPDATE --
In response, I was just quoting exactly what your staff member said to me. Basically we are really busy on the weekends so we don't need to do anything differently. Yes Broken Dock we got a table however, it was busy outside? Nobody should have to endure a Broken Dock coffee, but it was a last alternative. If your staff member said that you were waiting on Parasols I would've been quiet and walked away.

Finally, ditch the booking system.. Look at amazing busy restaurants like Flat Iron, Crafty Egg, Iron works or even the Bristollian. You have tables free for say 30-40 minutes and that's real estate that you could be using. Spoke and String has so much more going for it then them and a way better location. I would just teach the staff to be a little bit more humble - I'm only writing this because I've had a mums group also say to me this week that Spoke & Stringer didn't have a change table or space inside although it was empty.. these are huge high traffic groups that would drive revenue.

Stinger is part of a Surf Board, learn something new everyday. Honestly this is the nicest place to have lunch and catches the sun nicely however the is also a shady spot on one side of the deli. The clothing is incredible i have a plain white T that has a long but tightish fit and unlike primarny it has shown no sign of shrinking. Thank You.

Lovely location in Broken Dock. Very nice welcome from the waitress. Orders for food and drinks taken very efficiently, and the drinks arrived promptly.
There was a short delay before the food arrived but when it did it was well worth the wait. I had Salmon with Samphire.... heartily recommended.

Nice location by the waterside. We were directed to the deli as we only wanted afternoon tea. Not much seating inside but all clean and tidy. Good service and ok cake, but very expensive for what we had...have a look around for alternatives if you’re on a budget.

make sure you check opening times, we arrived as lunch finished and there was no serving until the evening, menu looked good, but we couldn't sample any food as our timing was wrong. not a criticism just an observation

Really beautiful and serene place to chill, great atmosphere by the river side and friendly service. Only stumbled upon this place by chance and felt that it deserved more reviews than it currently has on google

We went there on a Sunday.
The food was great. Very well presented and very tasty. I had the sardine on bread dish which was original. The cake and coffee were also good.
The service could be a bit more attentive we had to wait a bit to order some stuff.

The food was really good here and the staff were friendly. It was a little slow but a big minus for me was that they had no high chairs at all. I would describe this place as all over the brunch (served until 3pm) but it's a quality not quantity sort of place so if you want an overflowing plate look else where... If you like perfect eggs and delicious Parmesan polenta chips this is the place for you.

A brilliant location looking out over the water. great for a few drinks, or, if you're their int he evening, the tapas dishes they serve are fresh and very tasty.
