The staff at Cafeteria are just wonderful especially if you have any food allergies, even suppling Lactose free milk and Gluten free chocolate so you can have the most amazing Hot Chocolate on these very chilly days. The food is also delicious.

Great food. Friendly service. Often go for dinner on a Friday evening. A local gem well worth a visit for breakfast or lunch or the occasional Friday night treat!

I know, the name is incredibly basic, but the food is good. It is listed on Urban Spoon website and in the Australia Good Food Guide (AGFG) which is a very popular foody magazine. Black Rock is a southern suburb of Melbourne.
