We visited twice for coffee and once for breakfast. Service was fast. Coffee was excellent. Delicious scrambled eggs on ciabatta for $10. Couldn’t fault their staff either! A big thanks to Ellie. Congratulations to the owners- it was busy every time we passed.

Beautiful day and lovely setting. Friendly and efficient staff. Mocha and chai latte both excellent, and muesli lovely with fresh milk, yoghurt and berries. Jaffle was ok.

Whether you just want eggs and bacon or if you want something more exotic like the savoury danish you will not be disappointed. The breakfast is substantial and you will be happy. Good coffee and fresh juice too.

I’ve eaten some great burgers in my day, and the burger that this restaurant serves up is second to none!!! My work colleague purchased my lunch and the request was anything that would fill me up. That is exactly what this burger did and it...More

Very nice location and the food is not bad either. Very enjoyable. I had a steak sandwich a little overpriced I thought. Nice atmosphere

A wonderful cafe with delicious food and lovely staff. Nothing was a problem and everyone was extremely helpful. The tiger prawn pasta was amazing and the gnocchi was beautiful. The children loved the kids burger

Great food. Every dish we could on other people’s plates looked delicious. Had the gnocchi, highly recommended.

Visited for lunch. Pleasant environment overlooking the pier. Seems to be part of the University but doesn't have a student feel. Lunch for two, a milkshake and two large coffees was $47. I'd happily return in the unlikely event in ever back in Geelong.

I only go for breakfast, which is around once a month for the last couple of years. Have only had very positive experiences.
