Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My boyfriend and I lucked out as we were up early and were trying to go to the shop next door, which was closed and Little May’s was the only place open. Lucky for us, it had everything I need in a coffee shop: wonderful...bites (we had the carrot cake, croissant with jam and butter, and the regular breakfast, all lovely), casual and peaceful atmosphere with seating inside and out, cafe music (reminiscent of French cafes), kind service, and early opening hours! We were happily surprised at the quality and ambience in a small town.More

I've been here a few times over the years and used to enjoy the food. Stopped in with the intention of enjoying breakfast recently and was gobsmacked at the prices. There were no basics like a simple scrambled eggs on toast... every single menu item,...which is simple and ordinary breakfast fare, was $20-30 + suffice to say, we had a coffee and left. I was disappointed to see a lady working in there who coughed a number of times and never once bothered to cover her mouth. Tables were sticky too, indicating they are not cleaned.More

We had coffee here back to back days during our Montville stay. Lovely coffee and nice atmosphere with calming music and local art on walls. Day 1 we had cheesecake and day 2 breakfast as well (gnocchi). Had previously heard it was a good spot...to visit and we weren’t disappointed. Service was quick and friendly.More

Staff were lovely. Food and drinks were delicious! We had the Breaky Bun and the Montville Avo and they were both top tier. Also tried a mint hot choc which paid off - yum! Great brekky spot

SO DELICIOUS!! The best chai latte I’ve ever had. The best maple bacon I’ve ever had. Everything was so good! Scrambled eggs, avocado, my mouth is watering just reminiscing on our breakfast. Wish we could come here everyday.

Enjoyable lunch, great coffee. Unfortunately the group of 3 seated next to us made it an annoying experience. They sat for quite a while over coffee playing cards, one of the group (a girl) had a screeching voice which resounded all over the eating area....She had no idea that other people eating would have enjoyed a quieter lunch. She seemed to know the staff so not sure if she was a friend of the staff or the owner. We were glad to exit.More

We were looking for a breakfast venue and Little May was open earlier than most (7 am). Lovely menu - a bit different from the usual - delicious food and great service.

Our son recommended Little May as he had been here before. Food was delicious, fresh and tasty as you would expect from this region. New owner introduced herself and explained subtle changes in the new menu esp the fresh juices. Coffee was superb. We are...staying in the area a couple more days so will definitely be back.More
