They recently catered for a small work luncheon. They catered expertly for everyones needs (gluten free & vegan), there was a great variety & the food was delicious. Good comments were received all round & best of all it was very reasonable price.

We have been coming to Yello cafe for a few years now and have always been happy with the quality until now. Today's breakie just wasn't the same. Layout of the shop has changed and so apparently have the meals. The big yello was very disappointing as it seemed to have shrunk in size and changed from what they used... More

Service was lifeless and unwelcoming, not a smile in sight. Food was slow to come out when it did arrive it was OK but at this stage the poor service had left too much of a bad taste.

This was a nice little place to stop for lunch and coffee. You can sit outside watching the world go by but make sure you keep an eye on your food as the local gulls are very sharp on trying to share your spoils. There are no toilets in the café which was a little frustrating.

Great food, little high in price, but excellent service and coffee stop. Enjoyed the seagulls clearing the dishes at the end as well. Mind your manners.

This time just a coffee stop. Have been here before and had awesome eggs Benedict sitting outside at the roadside tables. However just popping in for a coffee as I knew what to expect. Good strong coffee with great service. Will be back again.

Food is average. Service is average. Wouldn't recommend it but probably quite good for a quick bite to eat if you're desperate

We came on a stat holiday and it seemed like they were caught a little bit on the hop. But neverless staff were lovely and the food was delicious (I had a vege option which I would highly recommend). The gingerbread milkshake was yum and the cajun fries delicious. Thanks!
