“Smiles, sun and usually great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

Having spent a few days recently in Healesville, I visited Harvest Cafe on a couple of occasions. Its a regular stop for me when passing through for take away coffee in a hurry. The coffee is always good, staff friendly (although can be a little less friendly when busy) and the place has a great atmosphere. Breakfast on the first day was fantastic. Perfectly cooked scrambled eggs, nice toast, hot, arrived quickly, everything that you want in a breakfast. A great start to the day....lingered over a 2nd coffee and enjoyed the sunshine in the garden.
Breakfast on the Wednesday was less successful....Zucchini fritters....barely warm, raw in the middle, cold grilled zucchini and the poached egg i requested with the dish was well and truly boiled and hard. Not enjoyable at all and such a let down following the previous day. They were busy and seemed understaffed. The staff were obviously not enjoying themselves. No sugar, salt or pepper on the table, coffee took forever and then arrived with no crema and looked as if it had been sitting for a while before it reached my table. Luckily for them, its hard to be in a bad mood when you are sitting soaking up the sun! This place has all the ingredients to be wonderful....its a shame that it can be so great one day and so poor the next.

“Good Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

You have a choice of indoor seating or under a large covered alcove. As the temperature was 40 degrees, we elected the cool alcove out of the sun. Coffee and cake were great and I'd imagine more substantial fare would also be good in this friendly coffee stop.

Know how to make a good coffee. Good service and nice courtyard on a hot day. One of the top two in Healesville

“Healesville Harvest = Happiness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

Harvest is another one of the regular places my colleagues and I meet when driving up to Eildon. It's known that we stop for coffee and sometimes breakfast.
The coffee is great. The breakfast is generous - just make sure you tell them if you're on a timeline because it can take a little while. Try the frittatas - delicious.
Staff are friendly and easy going. Lots of parking around.
Pricing is what you'd expect for the calibre of food and location. It's the last good stop for coffee if you're heading east so soak it up!
