Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 February 2015

Had a steak and mushroom pie and coffee for breakfast in feb when on great ocean road. Pastry and filling superb ; sauce/gravy at just the right level of viscosity which as all pie lovers know is imperative to great pie enjoyment -good steak and mushroom filling -only criticism no brown sauce available - but best meat pie I've ever tasted

For an establishment that draws you in with huge advertising full of promises of silver medal winning pies and great coffee, they've got a long way to go.
If there was an award for the worst coffee in Lorne Grandma Shield's takes the cake. Over the long weekend the cafe's seating area was filled the muttering of disappointed holidayers taking the first sips of their burnt and bitter coffees. For a business that has huge signage on the windows claiming their coffee and pies are great, they've got a long way to go.

For a business that is confident enough to claim they provide great coffee I was bitterly disappointed. Absolute let down, and expensive just for a kicker. Won't we back any time this century!

We visited with my family today, when ordering simple sandwitches we were told 'Oi slow down, this is Australia you know'. Our server was training a new staff member and seemed extremly stressed and pressured with 4 people waiting to be served. This was the worst customer service I have ever experienced. My family and I were shocked to be spoken to in this manner and treated this way! Whist I am not Australian born I am and a Resident, I have never been treated this way in Melbourne.

The food and coffee was average (this being kind) and I would not recommend this bakery to any tourists as it is extremely anti foreigners.
