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.

Fantastic place, staff very friendly and welcoming. Had breakfast here two days in a row as we felt it had the most to offer in Lorne. The range of meals was excellent and the meals themselves were great. Everyhting was spot on will definately return.

We went twice in a row because food was amazing!!!! The boy serving both days nice accommodating and great for front house staff. The food was the absolute stand out and pricing actually. A lorne bene only 23 and the scones 2.50 I really believe...they should put their prices up. We used to charge 20 for a bene and half piece of bacon and no spinach!! Not sure when going back but please visit and try their toasties as well. Even kids chicken nuggets were amazing!!!More

Tried HSP..my personal review..not too great. The bowl full dish was full of fries and not much meat…Disappointing. Service was good though. Their brekkie menu looked better than the kebab option. Will I go there again?? Perhaps for breakfast food.

First morning in Lorne and decided to have a yummy brunch to start our day. We both chose smoked salmon bagels. We love them…. Toasty with cream cheese, smoked salmon and avo. Well not quite what we were expecting. Bagel was only warmed, barely a...smear of cream cheese, single layer of smoked salmon but the amount of avo was over the top!!! It literally oozed out the top and up my nose! Now we love avo but this was ridiculous and embarrassing to get it out of my nose!! Coffee was ok, service average but disappointed by the food. Plenty of other breakfast options in LorneMore

Was looking for a snack at lunchtime and stumbled across Lorne Central. The entire process was easy and relaxed with helpful and friendly staff. The kebab was very good quality and ideal for a light lunch for 2. Great prices too!

Firstly, didn't need to ask for a menu, our hostess saw what we were needing and gave them to us. Secondly, all day breakfast in a cafe where staff are attentive and cleaning tables even when busy. Thirdly, great kebabs and selection of cakes and...other meals. We will be back next time we are in Lorne!More

We encountered this cafe when we came into town and visited it every day of our holiday. The food was mouth watering, the service friendly and the atmosphere welcoming. The coffee was exquisite. Highly recommended.

A bit so quick ‘Pit stop’ at Lorne Central! A double espresso, a cold pressed orange juice with the Fried Halloumi and Prosciutto on toasted rye bread and hashbrown. So if travelling from Melbourne or to Melbourne this is a great place to stop and...have a coffee or something to eat. A word of warning watch out for the Sulphur Crested cockatoo who will steal your food if you not looking! 😆More
