Cafe Downey on Urbanspoon 

Downey Cafe would be a successful story if they were located in the city business area, where sandwich lovers and big-serving lovers would rejoice in a munching celebration. Unfortunately for Downey Cafe, they are located in the heart of Mt Lawley, off Beaufort St, where hypeness and fanciness are a successful magic de-facto couple and working-day sort of meals are not well appreciated.

The decor of the place is very functional, pleasant to the eye, but it lacks character for the always demanding Mt Lawley clientele. Still, the place is comfortable. The fact that the place is not popular or trendy makes it perfect for quiet chatty cue-free, noise-free rendezvous, which is always great.The place is very clean and have lovely toilets! Children friendly. Family friendly. Me friendly.

Downey specialises in what I call manly food: sandwiches and burgers, but they have a selection of salads and cakes. Their sandwiches are very fresh and tasty, huge in size, and  they come always with crunchy delicious chips. Their breakfast menu is not the usual one you find everywhere, very tasty and generous in size; however, the time I had mine there, I got my eggs tepid, which is a big no-no for the cranky-in-the-mornings me.

Their coffee is Ok.

Service is fast. The staff are matter of fact, still affable.

The pricing is great.
