Unfortunately we must have visited on a very poor day, judging by the other reviews on here. We were hoping for a decent coffee as it was a cool Sunday morning and we were about to leave town. We walked in and there was only really about two other groups inside eating. An elderly lady was waiting to order in... More

Had a delicious chocolate cheese cake and coffees. Waitress was especially nice to us, maybe we reminded her of her grandparents! But I think she is one of those treasures that cafe owners need to know just make their place special. The plus here also is that it is near the Telstra Air telephone so I didn't need to bother...

Quirky place occupying half a store next door — or is it a converted or covered walkway? — with good food and coffee. The eggs in our breakfasts were either organic, or very very fresh, with bright bold yellow yolks. Cooked breakfasts were slightly cheaper than nearby cafes (which still leaves them a bit more expensive than similar places in Melbourne),... More

Very slow service yesterday for our visit. Cafe was probably 30% full if that. Meals and drinks took forever to come out and then when they did there was variations omitted. Staff couldn't tell me what the sauce was in the bowl they put on table and didn't even know parts of the meal when I asked for Beetroot relish... More

We come to Inverloch every few months and generally have a coffee here. The service is pleasant, and the coffee good. They offer a good range of cakes, muffins etc. They also serve dinner, and the menu and prices looked reasonable.

Friendly staff and quick service from order taking to food delivery. We both enjoyed our meals and drinks. Price seem a little expensive for the country- more what I'd expect to pay in the city. But all in all- a nice meal and I'd go again
