I love this cafe, it's been a favourite ever since I discovered it a few years ago. Great coffee, attentive friendly service & great house made food. It's got good vibes & is a soulful place. It's my must-stop cafe whenever I'm in Kyneton. For the fellow fussy coffee drinkers- I drink long blacks & have high expectations of the... More

The food I had with a friend was totally disappointing and my friend agreed. I had the tacos and they were greasy, oily and all tasted the same although meant to be different. My friends pumpkin bread was revolting and he had a small amount of mine and we both felt too oily. I still feel sick ....

The Little Swallow was about as cute as it sounds...so very! The service was great even though they were packed. I would suggest on weekend make a reservation as we did but others did not and they had no space. Food was so different which is always good. The chef thought uo so many great dishes it was hard to... More

I usually finish my plate even if I'm not enjoying it but I couldn't this time round. The dish I ordered was super oily. Coffee wasn't crash hot and I had to put sugar in it to drink it. Service was ok.

I love this place and have reviewed it several times. The food is always fantastic full of flavour and generous portion size representing great value for money. The service you can't fault. It's always warm and friendly and even if they are busy which they always are nothing is to much trouble. Today when we went back to my surprise... More

A breakfast for all seasons, great coffee and buzzy atmosphere. What more could you want? Home made Baked Beans. And big rosti's that are tender on the inside, not starchy. Oven roasted tomatoes, generous bacon and sausage....eggs, any way. All the locals eat here. Every effort is made to seat customers but some just had to be turned away, just... More
