“BEST CHOWDER IN THE WORLD”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

At $27 a huge bowl it is not the cheapest but it sure is the best we've ever tasted anywhere else - it beats those we've tasted in NZ, UK and USA hands down. YUM !!

“Good food, nice atmosphere ”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The staff were friendly and our food simple and tastey.

It was just a really nice place to eat, not pretentious or trying to be "hip". Just a really nice laid back place to eat with our baby that offered good value for money.

Highchairs were available (ikea classics) but there was no changing facilities which would be my only complaint.

“Great coffee!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Family breakfast. High chairs for our toddler and a great menu with top-quality coffee. Poached eggs on sourdough was great, wife had smoked salmon & cream cheese bagel which she said was delicious.

No change facilities for a baby.

Rest of the menu looked great.

“A short coffee break - great”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Just a short coffee break while driving along the Great Ocean Road. We sat by the window looking out towards the ocean. The coffee was very good and the cake was also tops. The cake selection was small but very creative and high quality. A lovely stop
