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.

Since Andrew and Anna took over King Bean it has been the friendliest service I’ve had in years. I used to take my 96 year old mum every week and we’d sit in the car and people-watch. Andrew and Anna even brought our coffee and...lunch out to the car, they’re amazing. My mum passed away in January and I live in West Melbourne, so I won’t get out that way now but I wanted to tell locals how wonderful they are at King Bean. Thanks for your friendly smiles and great service in the past.More

I had been going there weekly for Sunday breakfast but not anymore. The older lady is very rude and not customer friendly at all. Such a pity as every other staff member there is lovely.

Popped in for a quick brunch as we haven’t been here for over 12 months. Very disappointed, weak coffee, oily tasting breakfast and the menu didn’t have the ol favorite banana bread with berries any more.

The owner is an amazing man, good friendly staff. However, coffee needs a lot of improvement ! Please invest on good coffee beans and an amazing barista ( a professional ) who can make an amazing cappuccino . It seems I’m drinking a cup of...milk! I miss the days when Caroline and her team would offer us excellent coffee !More

Always drop in here for coffee when visiting from Sydney and often have a meal as well. Lunch this time was as enjoyable as any here i the last ten years. Great Chicken Curry and Roti. Mother in Law's pancakes stacked high enough to jump...over and she loved them. Coffee excellent. What more can you want in a local cafe than consistency and value for money. and .... excellent service.More

Always easy to drop in here - particularly if you’re at the medical centre, at Knox Hospital or want an alternative to Maccas. Friendly and consistent; always happy to stop by here.

I have been going to this cafe for years.New owners who are very friendly.Same old menu for last 10 years. Needs to be reviewed and less choice but more modern healthy cuisine. A change would be nice.

Good food, great coffee, but absolutely exceptional service. Friendly, responsive and short wait time for meals. Prices were also fair and menu had a pleasing variety of dishes on it.

My husband and I came for breakfast midweek. We were greeted by very friendly staff. The coffee was excellent, as was the food (pancakes and eggs florentine). We would happily return.

Love 'King Bean'. Go at least three times a year with friends and it's always enjoyable. The prices can be a little on the high side (and the servings aren't huge) but the food is delicious and freshly-prepared and there's always something new to try....Coffee really good.More

We've been to this cafe a few times & found that it has pleasant, helpful staff with good food. The menu doesn't look much different to anywhere else, in fact it doesn't reflect the quality of the food because it's a bit scrappy. We had...eggs on toast with a few sides, & found everything to be well cooked, & the serving sizes to be good too. They offer beautiful sour dough bread for toast, & the eggs are free range, which is essential. We enjoyed our hot chocolate & coffees, & will definitely be back. The only negative is that it gets very busy & noisy, however it isn't full of loud groups with too many kids as are other places, so that is a bonus.More
