We dined here for Breaky/brunch. Busy time for the cafe and the service as super slow. All drinks and meals came out staggered. Food was decent. Coffee was very good. Coffee was the highlight. Staff all seemed to be run off their feet and as...a result weren’t overly friendly nor helpful. Decent size meals for the price. Quality of ingredients also quite good. Would be good to have salt/pepper and a cutlery basket on each table as it didn’t come out with the meals and we had to ask two staff members. We had the smashed avo x 3 and a serve of the Nutella banana Jaffle- all vegan which was great for our vegan family of 4. All in all, we’d come back again for the coffee.More

This has to be the best place to have a coffee and snack in Lorne. The vista across the bay is magnificent. The jaffles are great fillers after a swim or walk. The coffee is great and the staff very friendly. Well worth a visit...when in Lorne....ticks all the boxes.More

They pride themselves in being a gourmet, sustainable cafe, open from Friday to Wednesday, 8 am - 2 pm and the only beachfront cafe on the Great Ocean Road. HAH is within walking distance from the Mantra Lorne, the camping grounds and local shops. Located...adjacent to Lorne Beach, surrounded by the Lorne Sea Baths, a skatepark, playground, amenities and the Lorne Anzac Memorial Park; makes for a perfect cafe setting. Inside has limited seating, and the exterior is spread out to cater for COVID restrictions, or you can sit on the sand. ‘HAH’ stands for Health & Hire and is not just a cafe but sells an eclectic choice of healthy lifestyle food and drinks made in house and sourced locally. Their menu consists of a smorgasbord of healthy options such as gourmet toasted jaffle sandwiches, bowls of smoothie goodness or super juices, the usual hot/cold drinks and yogurt soft serve. Not only this but you will find a range of eco-friendly products such as hats, organic deodorants, bento boxes, shopping bags and other groovy knickknacks. There is the ability to hire a quiver or soft surfboard, bodyboards, SUPs for all ability levels. A great place to break up a long beach walk, in a super chilled environment with friendly staff. Recommendations Yogurt soft-serve - great on a hot day. Take away coffee - Ocean Grind Blend.More

Lots of people serving.... yet slow service, considering I was only person and my friend in shop. Young boy washing dishes put me off with him wiping his nose with a screwed up old looking tissue. Then kept wiping nose with hand Yuck put off.
