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.

If your a lover of chilli, you won’t be disappointed with the chilli scramble. Absolutely delicious…. And the strong cappuccino was great as well. Good service to go with that!

BLOWN away by the granola!! Every bite was excitement. Haven't loved a dish so much for such a long so finding this little gem of a cafe was so amazing. Staff so friendly...coffee great too. But that granola...oh boy.

Was able to try the new version of the chilli scramble with kaiserfleisch mixed in and it was super delicious. My partner also loved the juice provided with her breaky roll. Highly recommend and friendly service from everyone. Will come again when next in town.

Hideous service. Rude staff. 3rd rate cafe. We waited 35 mins for a bowl of soup. Husband received his insipid toastie after 20 mins. As we were overdue at an exhibition , we requested that the order be cancelled. Apparently, it was ready in the...kitchen!!! And couldn’t be cancelled. A bowl of soup and 1 slice of toast !!!! Policy not to give refunds. Eventually as we were getting nowhere with the surly and untrained service staff we agreed to take it away. Was given to us , not in a cup but in a rectangle container. Useless to us. The toast was also swimming in butter, not asked for. Through the lot in the bin. If you are visiting Bendigo DO NOT go anywhere near this so called cafe.More

Lots of trendy and important types to be seen but also great coffee and an appealing lunch menu. The pumpkin gnocchi is superb.

Atrocious service. No table service, so stand in line for menu for ages....sit down and choose food....then go back and stand in line for a meal. While standing in line was screamed at by a local because I was standing too close to her, lol,...covid histeria. Quite bizarre experience. The location is away from city centre, and the vibe and presentation of cafe with their 50s mismatched chairs and tables might have impressed ten years ago, but now looks dirty and sad. Terrible experience.More

The owner manager has poor customer service skills and openly talks about and criticizes customers in earshot of customers! Unbelievable! Bizarre. Food and coffee is terrific but I will never go back based on the poor treatment of people.

We went there for breakfast. Menu looked ok. It stated coffee was $4, sounds great, so I ordered one. It came in a small glass, and I mean, a small glass. I questioned the size and all I received was a smile. I then wanted...another glass of coffee, and I was then told that sure, would I like a large for an extra 50 cents?? Why wasn't this offered to me in the first place? Why doesn't the menu list sizes and prices?.....I asked for chorizo sausage to be added to my order for an extra $3...I seriously doubt that it was. When I queried this, the waitress told me that it is sliced very very thinly, so I probably didn't realise I was eating it. As I said, the food was ok but when silly things like this happoen, it makes you wonder. there are so many good places to eat, you don't need this.More

Had iced coffee and quesadilla here. Good food and coffee. Staff were lovely. It was the end of the day but this place seems popular and busy which is always a good sign.

As my title says: Today was my 4th visit & the place is still 5/5. Atmosphere, service, coffee, food, decor etc.. The works.. It's all good. So I had lunch there today with my olds. Dad & I had the "Eggs Royal" +bacon +mushrooms and...Mum had the "BLT". She said it was the best one she's ever had. The eggs were spectacular - even the GF bread was well toasted & crispy - hard to get that. We all had coffee and that was quality stuff. I eat out for lunch in Bendigo quite a lot and have 3 specific fav places. This is definitely one of them.More

My first 5 out of 5 review here. Had a large almond milk flat white. I usually have 1-2 sugars but the coffee was so good it was easily drinkable without the sugar. The coffee art was impressive too (I took the picture after I...stirred it unfortunately). Then I had "Eggs Royale" plus bacon and garlic mushrooms. The meal was perfect & the mushrooms were some of the the best I've tasted. Overall the coffee & the meal was outstanding and so was the service. The only thing missing was a sunny day. It was wet - but I sat outside anyway. I forgot to take a pic of the eggs (damn it), but I'll definitely be back and then I will remember. Well done Old Green Bean =]More
