This café is in a prime location and has good menu choices. However, I've had 3 very ordinary food experiences, probably the worst being a whopping great lipstick imprint on my second cup of coffee.

Right on the beach Pavilion Cafe & Bar is a perfect spot for lunch or coffee & cake, especially when the weather is a bit wild & woolly! Great views, great food and friendly service. If you are there before 10am you may see the race horses being exercised in the water.

This place attracts a crowd due to its great view of Lady Bay towards the Gt Ocean Rd cliffs, and good food & coffee. Indoor and outdoor eating. Wide ranging menu.

Enjoyed the creative choices on the menu for breakfast, including the tortilla, which was very healthy and tasty. Great setting with fabulous views of Warrnambool's Lady Bay and breakwater area. It was a busy morning, being Mother's Day, but coffees and breakfast was served fairly promptly and enjoyed by all.
