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.

Food is ok but way too expensive for what it is. Simple tart and pie was $15!! Came with salad that was simple and too basic. Would not recommend

We love this cafe. The coffee is the best in the Gully, strong and hot, and the service is so friendly. Their raspberry/white choc muffins are the best ever! All the food is amazing, breakfast or lunch. Such a lovely vibe and great for kids...with the children’s area down the back. Definitely our favourite!More

We enjoyed a delicious coffee made by Ria and the friendly attention of Jess, Rapture is and will always be the best local cafe to enjoy good coffee and exquisite food.

Very slow and for $17.50 not a lot of value on the plate. Were there a year ago and pretty confident portion sizes have shrunk. New owner perhaps? Two other cafes Salte and Station Food and co are both better. Cheaper too for something more...rewarding. Oh and removing ham from an egg on toast dish and then charging $5 for substituting one small piece of bacon? Does that sound like value to you? Perhaps it was just a bad day and they were busy, but for $73 was still left unsatisfied as a family.More

Been here many times before but totally disappointing on this occasion - the pancakes have gone from being fresh to pre-made and microwaved - tough and leathery unable to eat - thick and glugging - like eating cold sponge cake If they cannot make them...properly they should be off the menu - poor reflection on the chef / cook if you go here - try something elseMore

Lovely service and nice coffee. Continued to provide their well known food and coffee through the Covid-19 period. Has a great takeaway special for those wanting a quick coffee and focaccia.

Gave it a try. Plenty to choose from in the area so was a bit let down. Good menu selection but breakfast and service was Mediocre at best. Coffee and juice was fine.

The staff at the cafe show care and thought for the food and coffee. The cafe is situated at the bottom of the foothills, and has great passing trade. Nice salads and focaccias in the cabinet. Coffee was good, however, milk was a tad hot....A great cafe with great specials.More

Great place for mums with kids. Maybe not ideal for a quiet girls get together as kiddies and babies may be loud. Food is good. Service needs improvement. Not overly busy the last three times I had lunch and each time the waitress forgot basics...and did not check cutlery quantity in container to match the number of people sitting at the table.More

Enjoyed lunch recently and was happy with the service and the food. Probably missing a WOW factor which could elevate the reputation to a higher plane. Returned on another occasion for take away coffee and all good. Certainly worth a try.

This cafe is opposite a cemetery and sits between a carpark and a petrol station. Don't judge a book by it's cover though - once inside the doors it is wonderful wonderful wonderful. Home-made cakes and pastries, awesome toasties, fresh flowers on the table..... We...have been living in the area for 6 years now and are grateful to have finally found somewhere we can be regulars.More

As my last couple of visits have been in stark contrast to my previous review 3 years ago, I warn people that with the new management unfortunately the range and quality of the food is vastly inferior. Such a pity. Even the tea tasted awful...! Embarrassed to have taken someone here so won't take a chance again, until I hear that there has been a big change.More

I had the Going Green Brekkie and it was really unpleasant, hard unripe avocado and no seasoning. They must have run out of certain ingredients too, instead of asparagus and mushrooms it had broccolini and green capsicum. Coffee was bitter. Kids play area was filthy.
