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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had an amazing breakfast at the Gold Creek cafe! A very friendly staff member made us feel welcome instantly! My wife and I had eggs Benedict which was well made and delicious. However we were even more impressed by what our two and a half...year old son had, with one of the best babychinos and dinosaur pancakes which he loved. Keep up the good work team!More

Excellent venue for a coffee catch-up with a friend. We sat inside, the waitress was welcoming and beautifully groomed, the coffee was hot and strong and the Portuguese Tart had just come out of the oven. Excellent! This place has atmosphere. There was a toasty...fire to keep us cosy. And lots of books and novelties to lust over. And there is plenty of outdoor seating for warmer days.More

Reasonably good cafe. Lunch was served very fast which had me wondering about the food prep. But it was fine none the less. Service was really good and staff are friendly. Menu is a little confusing as it has a lot of choices including an...all day breakfast, seafood and Indian. Lots of outdoor seating and lovely environment. A good stop.More

S & P Calamari were like little balls of batter; hard to chew and tasteless! Latte coffee was more like a cup of milk and coffee

We ordered the spicy veg and satay chicken and bacon wraps takeaway on our way through to the coast (didn’t want to go to Maccas or KFC). The wraps were both delicious, spicy veg is not too spicy but really flavoursome as was the satay...chicken wrap. The chips were hot and perfectly salted. The little salad that comes with it was also delicious and well dressed. They were easy to eat on the go. Will go out of our way to have these again when we are in Canberra.More

I normally only stop for coffee on weekend dog walk but due to lockdown and to support the business I got a curry for lunch. OMG!! It was the best. Packed full of flavour! So good there’s nothing left for a photo.

What amazing staff. 15 min before closing on a Sunday afternoon, we were welcomed in like long lost friends! Hubby chose a GF meal, and they adapted to his other dietary need without problem. I chose the quiche and salad with hot choc. Although they...were locking up, we were served with a smile, and treated so well. Thanks to the chef and the owner for some very hysterical views on just about everything in the dying minutes of our visit! We wont forget your generosity or your sense of humour!More

I debated whether to come here after reading Luke_DGT's review from December 2020, but I'm really glad we did. Service was great, food came out quickly and was very nice, and the big breakfast was exactly that - fed 2 of us. Coffee was nice....Quiet, attractive and serene atmosphere. Would definitely come again.More

After reading a few recent reviews, we started to question our decision to drop into Gold Creek Cafe for breakfast before a day trip up to Murrumbateman. I thought how could there be such solid reviews over the years and such poor ones recently... But...alas, the more recent ones were pretty spot on. The coffee was barely drinkable at best (somehow McDonald's across the road was a better option after we left to get a caffeine fix), the food portions were quite small for the price, sloppily presented and tasteless... And that's when they actually arrived. One of our meals was forgotten and didn't even get an apology when it was pointed out. This place clearly exists on the back of tourists who visit once because it's the only place about. People lament fast food taking over but when this level of disregard is what small business deliver... well, welcome the mega corp takeover.More

Stopped for weekday lunch at Gold Creek Cafe. Plenty of tables available in various areas just after social distancing had been introduced. It was quite busy but we were served straight away by a friendly waitress. Meals were fine. Coffee was good too. Free parking...and toilets in the shopping centre, so it was all very convenient and enjoyable.More

Gold Creek Cafe offers a standard menu of breakfast staples - bacon and eggs, eggs benedict etc. The portion sizes were large and the prices reasonable. While I thought the scrambled eggs would have benefited from a little extra seasoning, they were well cooked and...served quickly, The service was fast and attentive. The server understood gluten free requirements and was happy to adapt the menu item to something which was safe for me to eat. They also had a good selection of cakes, tarts and brownies which I understand are baked in-house.More

Good size served. Food looks delicious. However, when ordering ask for no salt. All meals at our table were killed by the chef. Apparently they regularly oversalt the mains.
