Great coffee and the food is excellent. It has a nice hole in the wall feel to the point where I don't have to wear the paper bag over my head. It's good to see a barista with appropriate facial hair. Seven and four seventh thumbs up! /@$

Came here for the last day of our honeymoon, wanted a quick breakfast before heading home. We were amazed, wife got scrambled eggs and I got the pravatas bavas which was a freaking amazing way to wake up! Spicy and tasty! Great coffee and great friendly service. Definitely coming back.

While staying in the Blue Mountains we were looking for a good breakfast and chose Thunderbird simply based on a few pictures of their food offerings we saw online. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the feel of the place as it's perfectly in sync with the theme of their Mexican-inspired food menu. It really reminded us of a couple of our favourite cafes back home. Service was perfect, and had a nice chat with the owner Owen who is one of those guys you just like instantly. I really have to disagree with a previous review that was quite critical of the food menu here. They got it totally wrong! Let's face it, Mexican is a relatively simple cuisine, but when quality ingredients are prepared well in a way that's very accessible then you can't really complain. I couldn't fault our breakfasts. My chorizo and potato was perfect, even better with a good amount of chili sauce (they have a huge selection of these). The tomatoes were deep red, Rejoice loved the quality of the sour dough. The locally roasted house blends is solid and will appeal to most milk coffee drinkers. I opted for a double ris espresso on the single of the day which happened to be a lovely Ethiopian Sidamo. It was nice and clean with plenty of fruit acidity. Thanks Owen and team, really enjoyed our visit today!
