My husband and I went on a drive, lunch trip to Olinda. We were originally going to dine in at Pie in the Sky but it was too busy so we went to Olinda Café. The service was excellent by everyone. The food was good and well presented and the coffee was excellent. I highly recommend a stop if you... More

In this little town nestled in the trees and ferns, you will find a great place that feels like you're a local. The staff was super friendly, the food excellent and prices were more than reasonable. So glad we stopped in!

Our cycle group found another cafe to be closed on Tuesday, so it was after 11.00am when we got to Olinda, cold and wet (that's variable Melbourne weather even in summer). Service was excellent, coffee and cakes popular, and two of us had the soup - very welcome to warm one up.

Ordered the scones with jam - excellent choice - home-made jam with tasty scones. The smoked salmon sandwiches is also another good choice. Smoke salmon did not taste too salty.

While visiting some of our old haunts throughout the Dandenong Ranges we stopped in the small town of Olinda. Just like many café’s they provide guests with big breakfasts, light lunch options and a variety of desserts and drinks. There is ample seating inside, near the cosy fire place or opt to sit within the lovely courtyard which is located... More

Beautiful cafe with a cozy outdoor area! Greeted promptly with a warm smile upon arrival. All staff are very friendly and welcoming. I had the pulled pork roll and my husband had the lamb and rosemary pie with a side of chips, was so tasty and very filling. Will definitely return.

I met with family for a girly lunch, and again, I was not disappointed. My guests gushed over their calamari salad, and pulled lamb pie respectively, whilst I finished every morsel on my plate of zucchini and haloumi fritters accompanied by a fresh greens and pear salad. The kiddies menu is ideal and the juniors tucked into their child-size pizzas.... More

We visited this café with a group of 6. When we walked in we knew we had made a great choice. It was so warm and cosy inside, lots of people already enjoying the food, and friendly service. We ordered a variety of foods, coffees and treats and everything was delicious. Prices were very reasonable. Great little café.
