- Thanks so much Will & Wal.

“Thanks so much to Wally, Will and the team @ EQ Cafe & Lounge. We recently held our dad's significant birthday party there. From the get-go of planning our event, the owner Wally was incredibly accommodating to our needs and requests. The venue was perfect, the food spot on (we received many compliments on their behalf) and the attention to detail and customer service on the night from everyone from James in the kitchen and Wally, Will and also their young bartender was brilliant. We would highly recommend EQ for any upcoming event you're planning.”

"EQ Cafe & Lounge recently hosted my husbands surprise 50th birthday party. There was over 140 guests and we had a stand-up cocktail style event. Wally and the team cooked up a giant, delicious seafood paella on the floor and served canapes all night. Our guests were so impressed with the food, service and evening in general. We were so happy especially Peter (my husband) was blown away not only because of the surprise also the organisation and how lovely the venue looked and how roomy it was also. Thank you EQ team for a great evening”

“My husband organised a surprise 40th Birthday at the EQ Cafe & Lounge with my entire family and closest friends in attendance. I was quite overwhelmed at how much trouble The EQ team went to in making my day so special, as they held this private function on a Sunday afternoon of a long weekend just for us! The food was incredible and the service as always was outstanding. We played music, danced and everyone had a great afternoon. I would recommend hosting any event at the EQ Café & Lounge -Thanks so much Wally, Will and all the team!”
- Julie Jenkins - January 2016

“A huge thank you to Wally, Will and the team at EQ Café & Lounge for making our engagement party one of the most enjoyable nights we’ve ever had. To add to our delight we received overwhelming feedback from our guests about the service and the food which included cold canapés, arancini balls, pork belly, mini beef burgers all the way through to the spectacular paella that was cooked right in front of our eyes; it’s clear that the team are extremely experienced in dealing with and catering for groups of all sizes. The modern fit-out of EQ made for an easy, stress free set-up – we simply added a few balloons and our fabulous cake to create the perfect space. We have no hesitation in recommending EQ Café Lounge for any kind of function or special occasion.”
