If you are a burger person, it might be ok for you. Staff not so friendly. Considering the price and quality, won't recommend.

Read the amazing reviews so we checked it out for Breakfast. Unfortunately the bacon and eggs were cold. Completely underwhelming.

Wandering along the main street looking for somewhere to have breakfast and we came across this gem! It was busy!! Ordered inside at the til, coffee arrived hot, I didn't even need to add sugar, it was perfect! Breakfast was tasty, my roll was massive...could barely get my mouth around it! Lost a point because the white of my egg was still raw in some parts. Fixable issue, would still eat here again. Staff as friendly as they can be considering how busy it was.More

We enjoyed two warm donuts. I had a hot chocolate and my husband had a cappuccino we enjoyed everything especially on a cold day. The staff seemed nice. The menu looked good and decently priced.

My friend and I both enjoyed our breakfast here. The coffee was delicious and the food was just as delicious as it was beautiful. The service was friendly and watching the birds outside was a lovely touch

I asked for a half serve of eggs benedict - i.e 1 egg on half a muffin, I do not eat much and said I did not like to waste food, they were ok with that. But when it came out it was 2 eggs...atop 2 half muffin. I told her I ordered a half, and she said do you not want the other half, and she asked why. I again explained that I cannot eat too much and its a waste, that is why I explained it to the girl who took my order, she asked me what I wanted to do with the other one. I said I did not care but you wasted food by putting on my plate, why when I asked for this not to happen. She just looked at me and walked away. Seriously.More

Some of the best burgers. Staff serves with a smile. Getting a parking spot close by is difficult on a weekend. There's indoor and outdoor seating available. We forgot some stuff on our way to Apollo Bay and we got it 3 days later on...our way back to Melbourne. Thank you CharlotteMore

It was interesting to work out what was worth a visit from all the other TA's and their reports of some of the Cafes in Lorne. This one rated fairly highly so we though we would try for breakfast. We went in and stood and...stood and no one was all that interested so we walked out and went next door. That was disappointing. Not so CheersMore

You call yourselves a burger place by re-heating cooked meat, slapping on 3 day old tomatoes, wet lettuce on a stale Turkish roll. Maybe go and eat at some other reputable burger places and school yourselves. Absolutely woeful. And don’t get me started on the...$9 chips that were cooked in dirty oil. 🤢More
