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.

I work in hospitality so I am always incredibly compassionate towards businesses etc but this was disappointing. Waited 45 min for 1 coffee, and egg and bacon sandwiches. No cutlery on tables, pepper/salt etc. toilets weren’t clean and some staff had shocking body odour. Would...definitely not recommend.More

Average coffee, menu choices were good and meal ok but service was poor at best, had to ask 3 times for staff to wipe table down. Arrived @ 10.30 food arrived @ 11.30. Many other choices locally give them a go.

Disappointed with the service, no smile no acknowledgement and then ignored. Have been stopping here for quite a few years on our travels between Melbourne & Sydney. It’s in convenient easy to park location with good coffee and food. It doesn’t cost anything to say...good morning but it might cost you a customer.More

Staying at the accommodation across the road Quest Albury on Townsend and the breakfasts were to die for. Fantastic selection and cappuccinos probably the best l have had for a long time. Did take back to the apartment some of there takeaway options which was...ideal when working late in the office. Coming back to Albury, awesome town, awesome peopleMore

Finally found somewhere that makes amazing coffee was my wife’s first words after taking her first sip of her coffee. We had lunch here today and everything was delicious. We ordered the smashed avocado on toast, a scrambled eggs with bacon and scotch fillet sandwiches....Everything was delicious. The steak sandwich was with Turkish bread and made it that extra delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful the cafe it’s was clean and refreshing. The prices were a bit on the high side. 18.00 for the steak sandwich and 20 for avocado Overall excellent experience will be back for sureMore

After several failed attempts to check out this cafe due to popularity, we finally managed to experience lunch there today. Whilst inside was crowded, there were plenty of outside tables available. Service is prompt and friendly. The coffee is excellent as is the food. Quite...a varied menu with GF and vegan options and lots of choices for brekkie or brunch. We chose the Lamb Congee ( sort of like a lamb stew with a poached egg on top!) and the Open Scotch Fillet Steak Sandwich on Turkish bread were both delicious. It was well worth the wait and I can now understand why it’s difficult to get a table here. Highly recommended.More

This was best coffee from a bad bunch locally. I had long black. It seems hard to find strong coffee in this area. We are from Sydney so I don’t know if it’s related to the water or the brand of coffee used.

Driving from Melbourne to Newcastle is a taxing experience and you have to make many stops along the way. Of course, you can stop on the Hume Highway service centres but the food here just makes you feel even worse. Albury is a 3-hour drive...from Melbourne through some very unite resting countryside on a very boring highway, so it's nice to stop at The Proprietor for a decent lunch. They are making an effort here, and it shows. The coffee is very good and the food is typical cafe fare, but it is Melbourne standard and that's why it's our lunch stop. They could smarten up the service, though. It's not terrible, but a bit inattentive and slow. They also have Keto friendly options, which works for me.More

A breakfast and lunch based cafe located just off the main street of Albury. A comprehensive breakfast menu was on offer when we were there. There is seating inside and on the footpath. The staff were friendly but the speed of the service looked to...be slow for those sitting outside. Worth a visit and I would not be put off from visiting there again.More

Average, busy and disorganised. Food was okay, not memorable despite having potential - menu reads well and venue is well located. Breakfast toast didn’t offer butter and mushrooms with poached egg is for one egg only. Strange when there are two slices of toast. Coffee...was average as well. I’d save my $ and eat elsewhere.More
