A converted small church, the place was very busy; wait staff dancing and twisting around customers. The inexpensive food was average. The service a tad hectic (presumably because they wanted to free-up tables asap). 'Cheap and cheerful' is an expression that comes to mind. I'd...More

Accommodated 14 of us very easy considering the cafe was very busy. Great friendly service by the young man and excellent food. Fantastic building also. Next time we are visiting Shepparton, Friars cafe we will be attending. Thank you, loved the experience..

Yumm. Very nice, quiet little cafe. Set in an old church. Staff greeted you as soon as you entered, friendly and attentive. Food was good, choice was hard so many nice options. Upstairs and downstairs choices for seating usually. Would recommend. Would comeback.

Breakfast with friends in this energetic and buzzing cafe. Great ambience and use of church pews and artifacts but thoroughly modern menu. Quick and friendly service. Great value for money.
