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.

This cafe has a well rounded menu that caters for all dietary needs in an inclusive way. As a vegan I often have to have avo on toast but at this cafe they have really thought about what they’re serving. From the eggs Benedict that...my husband loves, the mushroom on toast with almond feta for me and the keto bowl …… everyone was very happy. Great coffees and lovely staff too. We’ll be back again!More

We found this little spot quite by chance. You almost wouldn’t know it’s there – buried in the back corner of Mountain Gate village in Ferntree Gully – and effectively no signage on the window/s. Coffee specialists – with ticks in all the right boxes...– a rare find nowadays. Clean – including the bathrooms. Creative menu, quick & friendly service. Just great for lunch, light meals, coffee & cake. Even if you don’t troop out to Ferntree Gully that often – it’s worth the hike. We will be there more often. Just a pleasure – even though it’s not quite just “around the corner” for us.More

Arrived at 10am for morning tea. The cafe was a little busy, but had plenty of seats. We checked the cake display case and noted that many items seemed a bit expensive, and were not large. We decided on the Fruit Toast and coffee. The...Fruit Toast was heavily fruited (nice), and not too thick - unlike cafe raisin bread which is nice and thick. It was rather nice. The service was good - nothing to complain about there. The toast and coffee cost $12.35 (nearly twice the price of some cafes in the area).More

Went for lunch yesterday (Tue 29/03/22). When I sat down I was told a bottle of water would be brought to our table, if they had time - they didn't. After ordering with a waitress who made it abundantly clear that she did want to...be there, our meals arrived at the table 40 minutes later. We finished our meals and waited to be asked if we wanted to order anything else, we waited 20 minutes - we we not asked, just ignored. Staff not wearing masks, as they are legally obliged to. Will never go back. I expect to be treated like a welcome guest when visiting a cafe for lunch, not an inconvenience. Not too much to ask for, in my opinion.More

coffee is amazing, food is very good. but unfortunately there is no mask enforcement and no staff members were wearing masks which brings an uncomfortable experience and environment.

I am now in bed with stomach cramps, headache, nausea and a rash because their ‘gluten free’ avocado smash has Vegemite in it that isn’t gluten free. I received a half hearted apology from the waitress and that was all. Perhaps she doesn’t realise that...now I am going to be sick for a whole week. The GF bread is that awful white mushy cheap bread. The meal tasted strange with Vegemite on it so I’m not sure why it was there. Don’t go there if you have allergies!More

I’ve been here twice and the food and coffee are delicious. But unfortunately the portion sizes are miniature. I would love to come here again but I just can’t when they’re charging the same high prices as other cafés and I leave hungry. The berry...cheesecake especially was the tiniest little cheesecake I’ve seen in my life, and they still cost $7. You expect a minimum amount of food for the price. Just feels like being ripped off because the outer suburbs don’t have a whole lot of choice for cafés, honestly.More

A great venue for freshly roasted coffee and light meals. The coffee beans are roasted on-site, so you know that the quality is good.

What a really great place for Breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised to find this place not far from home and enjoyed the Avocado Toast and the Pesto Chicken Panini. Service was really good, friendly and engaging. Enjoyed the coffee and the prices were not too...bad for what you get. Definitely coming back.More

I only recently discovered this hidden gem and I must say I have been blown away impressed not just by the great food and coffee but also the fantastic hospitality and the service. It’s just one of those places where they really are prepared to...help, add extras, take away toast, use almond milk - none of it seems too hard. And they are even helpful when it comes time to pay the bill, with dividing up amongst our group. I took hubby last weekend and this week he was very keen for a repeat visit, which just showed me how fantastic this place is. Who’d have known that behind that ordinary exterior is a welcoming foodie haven!More
