Cool place and they have some interesting pieces in there. Collectors stuff... The food was sloooooowwwwww as a sick snail, but really good, at least. The coffee... tasted like tea... No Coffee flavor... I read the description of the blend. Fruity after tones and all that Australian-Roasting-BullPoo... If I want fruity I drink a juice, when I order a coffee I expect it to taste like coffee...

If you asked me what my favourite place to eat in Sydney is, I would say Robocog without a moment of hesitation. I am not kidding. It serves brexican (breakfast mexican)! I know right?! There are other things on the menu, but why would you try anything else? Plus, the coffee is pretty good, the staff are adorable and there are robots everywhere! If you can, get a table outside!

What a cool little spot. Latte art was perfect. Flavour smooth. Enjoyed my latte. Nice fit out and great service. I think they may roast their own beans.

Agree with other reviews: come for the vibe, the food, staff, but don't come just for the coffee... Nice place to kill some time, but there is better coffee nearby.

Great looking cafe and fantastic service. Wasn't a hipster overload the day I was there (thank goodness!) - although it looks like it could be on any given day. Terrible coffee though, what a bummer!

I love this place. The food is great, the owners and staff are wonderful. The coffee is very drinkable, not the best in the area, but it's one of my favourite places to kill time and work over a cup.

No mount of retro robot toys and funky artwork can distract you from the harsh reality of this hipster-friendly cafe. It's a Sunday afternoon, 3.40pm. I wasn't expecting the place to be packed with people - nor was I expecting to be the only customer in the cafe. So, I certainly wasn't expecting to wait 17mins(!!) for my coffee to be delivered. the reason? The barista was "on a break with his friends". When my strong flat white finally arrived, I was disappointed to learn that I'd waited for a bitter and pale cup of coffee that was almost completely devoid of body or flavour. Tastes like a cheap, stale commercial blend. At least the milk texturing was well-executed. The place LOOKS great! Lots of warm colours and solid timber tables give thhis place a homely feel. Dozens of wind-up robot toys are spotted around the cafe, presumably as homage to the cafe's name. But the ambience is weird, it's funky inner-city cafe meets loud Asian restaurant. The screaming (possibly in Thai?) from the open kitchen is most off-putting. Some jazz plays quietly in the background but is drowned-out by the staff yelling at/laughing with each other. Will struggle to recommend this cafe to anyone. Very disappointing.
