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.

Not only was my coffee delicious, the recommendation of a savoury muffin with relish "spot on", but Nathan's subsequent help in solving a problem was kind and unexpectedly generous. It's clear why this establishment is well regarded - rated #1 - by locals and visitors...alike! Thank you.More

Amazing coffee with exquisite coffee art, sorry I drank it before taking a photo! Had a cinnamon bun and an Anzac caramel slice which were divine. Just stopped here for a quick coffee as we passed through the town. Would highly recommend. Friendly staff too.

They really do know how to make a good cup of strong coffee here. I had a perfect long black. Good crema. Good temperature. The flat white was excellent too. And as for their fresh, home baked banana bread….yum! Do try it!

Passing through on way to Adelaide , we noticed this coffee bar open early in the am , and already busy. We stopped, staff were friendly and welcoming. Coffee was fabulous and banana bread and chia puddings were excellent. Obviously popular with early morning walkers...and dog owners, we thought it was great place as well.

By far the best coffee we found in Mount Gambier (after hunting extensively for a week - I admit I’m a coffee snob). It was so good I bought a bag of beans to take home. Add in big warm smiles, great service and truly...delicious toasties and banana bread… just perfect. Our second week in town we never went anywhere else for coffee.More

Huge, welcoming smiles from every member of staff when I went in. I was there for less than five minutes for two take-away coffees and came out feeling really happy and with what turned out to be the best dang coffee I’ve had all week....Gotta go to Bay Blue if you’re in town.More

Cute little coffee shop - tasty coffee - but no sweetners available for diabetics? Was offered raw sugar or honey - neither are good for diabetics. Just invest in a box of equal or something to have on hand.

We have found it incredibly hard to find a decent coffee on the Limestone Coast. Hallelujah for finding Bay Blue. Great coffee, fantastic staff and the yummiest cinnamon scroll ever. We will be back every day to get our caffeine fix while on holidays.
