Welcome To Lobby Boy
The office is overwhelming, the office is too boring. Susan keeps complaining and you can hear Peter snoring. Whatever the reason, Lobby Boy is at your service and we’re here to make your day that little bit special. Join us for a coffee, join us for a meal. Settle in or take it away, depending on how you feel.
Our goal is to create a place to get away from the office – to build a sense of community and to become an integral part of people’s daily ritual. In the words of Starbucks “a place between home and the office”.
... not simply a place you walk past, rather a place you walkthrough
The lobby will become the lounge room of the office block – the community hub, the meeting point and the go-to place for catch-ups; not simply a place you walk past, rather a place you walk through.

Great spot for breakfast or lunch! Recommended to book before visiting as it's always busy

The quality, quantity and the care of food has certainly depreciated since this place started. The prices has risen but the amount and the quality has decreased...not sure how this makes any business sense but not going to get myself another meal here.

For a table booked for 9am, peak hour in North Sydney for meetings, it was over 40min for the food to arrive and another 5 for coffee to turn up! Unacceptable.

They didn’t appear to be understaffed at all as there were plenty just wandering around aimlessly.

The food itself was tasty, although a little too much decorative weed and lettuce appeared on most meals (table of 6). It was disappointing that what was a tasty plate was ruined by the tardiness to the point that we won’t return any time soon as there are too many others in Nth Sydney to choose from that beat this place for food and service.

I go to Lobby Boy every few weeks to catch up with a friend, we share a Ruben Sandwich and we have noticed the last 2/3 times it hasn't been the best in the food.

Delicious breakfast, professional and friendly staff. Great place for a catch up with your work colleagues for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Highly recommend all North Sydney workers to visit Lobby Boy if you haven't already done so!

The reason the ratings are so low is that we were asked to leave the table after an hour as it had been booked (I had made a booking also). I have attended many restaurants that have timed seating, but I would expect that they would notify my of this prior to making the reservation and not suddenly whilst we were seated there enjoying a beer.
I was hosting a client for lunch and was left slightly red faced when we had to up and move to the couches not 5 min after we finished eating.
Other than that I had no complaints - the staff were nice (even the gentleman who asked us to move), ambiance was good and food was also good.

Ambience. Nice. Grounds always do a great job. Service while waitresses were pleasant, lost our order which am appreciative of tech failures. The lack of observation that we had been seated a while even on refill of our water to not become aware we hadn't had our coffees and food really showed the lack of good waitressing skills, especially on a fairly quiet morning at 8am. Then, wrote the wrong coffee orders down. Food, the corn and pine nut fritters were fair but not one I'll re order.

The Lobby Boy North Sydney offers a unique dining experience - very classy and polished whilst not overpriced. Staff are very friendly and professional. Food was excellent with a menu to cater for all tastes and types. Also a great place to catch up for a quiet coffee and chat in their lounge area! Highly recommended. About time North Sydney had this type of venue to cater for us office workers.

Love the food and ambience. Natalie was very kind to help me order a birthday cake for our lunch celebration. Good service! Second time there and it did not disappoint!
