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.

Chose this cafe for lunch, great decision. Lovely and attentive staff, and the best pies ever. We had chunky beef which was really chunky, not just the occasional piece of meat and mince. Great flavour and the best pastry. Well done!!!

We had a toast breakfast with fruit toast and sour dough. We loved it. The coffee was good and the decor interesting. We were brought water without having to ask. A great spot !

Stopped here for breakfast on our way home from Warrnambool and can highly recommend. My husband had the omelette which he said was very tasty and full of ingredients. I chose the ham and Swiss cheese croissant, again very tasty and didn’t skimp on filling....Enjoyed a coffee and a very welcoming atmosphere.More

I ordered scrambled eggs and sourdough, arrived on soggy supermarket grain bread, eggs were overcooked and rubbery …inedible. Seriously the worst breakfast I’ve ever had at a cafe.

My husband and I both really enjoyed our breakfast at The Farmers Son. Great country style food and hospitality and great city style coffee (strong but not bitter). Hubby decided he needed an extra piece of toast to mop up his eggs which arrived promptly...and without charge. We will definitely stop in again!More

We briefly called in on Saturday 30/08/19 while visiting Colac for the first time from Cairns. The staff were very welcoming & friendly and we enjoyed our hot cuppa with one Hot Chocolate & one Cappuccino. Defiantly worth a visit.

Thanks so much Stephen for taking the time to review Farmer's and for stopping in. You probably really needed that hot drink while in cold old Victoria !!! Safe travels.
