We visited this cafe for lunch on a hot March afternoon. Only once we ordered food, did we really take a look at our surroundings and noticed the cleanliness was far below the standard most other cafes in Dee Why maintain. Two of the three...dishes were good but my wife’s Avocado & Chicken burger arrived warm and even with a steak knife she struggled to cut the bun, and she said of all the variety of lunches we have enjoyed in our 5 weeks in Australia this was her worst meal. Had it simply been the food we probably wouldn’t have left a review as most kitchens can have one meal that doesn’t hit the mark but as we left they began wiping down the table with a dirty looking cloth that should have been thrown away many moons ago so we wonder if not finishing the food was a good idea.More

Great service and food from such a busy cafe. The big breakfast (the local) would have got an excellent review had it included pork or beef sausage and not the chicken one provided. Anyway only being picky and empty plates returned.

Spending 4 days in Many for a Birthday celebration. We had researched places to enjoy a meal, No 1 on the list was Seachange Cafe for breakfast. Beautiful morning, nice quiet location across from the beach. Fast efficient service, friendly staff. Small seating area, but...colour and decor make the cafe seem larger. Food was well presented, and more than enough for a healthy appetite. Highly recommend for a relaxing morning watching the world go by enjoying a coffee and meal.More

Had lunch here for my birthday. The food and service was surprisingly good, and I will definitely recommend SeaChange for its extensive and delicious menu. I'm a vegetarian, and I was very happy with my meal.

Excellent food and service. Very fresh and caters well for children. My husband had the largest salmon portion he has ever had at a restaurant and it was delicious. We also had a 4 year old with us and his meal was delivered promptly. All...three of us ate and drank everything. I had the garlic and cheese turkish bread. Yum. Definitely recommend.More

Best food for miles! Always friendly and prompt service, large menu choice with some meals hard to match elsewhere. Views and location second to none. Constant lines to get a seat is your best giveaway and it’s the busiest on the whole strip. Recently renovated...and highly recommendedMore

You get a sense a lot of locals come here. As a local myself, I only order the same thing - it has the best fish and chips. More expensive then the fish and chip shop down the road, but its worth every extra penny....They do takeaway so I only sit and wait for my order. Most times, the staff are great and offer water whilst you wait, which is a really nice touch. Sometimes the staff are too busy bickering, behind the counter, but with sea breeze and a nice cozy vibe. Its a great place to try.More

We enjoyed our visit to Seachange. Generous servings and very well cooked food. I yearn for intelligent informed staff who can string a sentence together, not the case here. I don't like being referred to as youse!! The place needs a bloody good clean. The...glass doors and windows were filthy. Hadn't been properly cleaned despite assurances that in these times it would have a good going over before re-opening.More

Great location near the beautiful Dee Why beach. Busy cafe with very robust menu - something for everyone. Portion sizes are very large so consider sharing something with someone. Lots of dogs enjoying brunch with their humans as well.
