So, it's January in Eden on a Saturday in peak holiday season and naturally everything is closed. We are driving through Eden at lunchtime and Sprout is open. It's a nice location in the town centre and looks good. But...despite the staff outnumbering the customers...by 2 to 1, the service is non-existent and we are ignored for 10 minutes before a girl acknowledges our existence. The staff don't know what cacao is even though it's clearly marked on the menu as a smoothie option. Water is not brought to the table and nobody can pronounce bruschetta. I asked for the WiFi password but that was an issue apparently. Eventually, it was produced so I could write this. Our Espresso Banana smoothies were clearly screwed up because others that came out later were much different. One of ours was replaced. Fortunately, the food was decent, if not remarkable. Sprout could be a real winner if the staff were trained properly or took their jobs seriously. Maybe we just got them on a bad day, but the signs are there that this is normal levels of service. Have a look at my review of FoodCo on Franklin to see how Victorians approach this scenario.More

Did a bit of research and decided on this place and glad I did; great coffee, excellent breakfast options and unbelievable salmon. Do yourself a favour and get the salmon pate. Just note it isn’t open on Sunday which is a shame as I was...going to buy a truckload of the stuff.More

Thanks so much for your kind review, Robin! I’m so sorry we are unable to stretch to opening Sundays any more - hospitality is notoriously short of staff at present!

On a cold rainy day in Eden, we happened to have lunch at this little cafe. What a treat. Had the most delicious, tasty fish chowder I’ve ever had, topped with local smoked fish and served with garlic bread. Wonderful stuff.

Very good local main street cafe with friendly and efficient staff. Plenty of choices from menu or food cabinet. If eating in, well spaced tables indoors or street side dining. Very good coffee.

Breakfasted here and the food was so fresh, healthy and tasty we bought several quiche slices to have for dinner in our flat rather than eat out of an evening in what is a fairly disappointing evening selection of eateries in Eden township. Coffee was...good quality, muselli excellent and the fruit toast artisan quality. only shame is they aren't open of an evening.More

Thanks so much for your kind words and so glad you enjoyed our food. Many food businesses have unfortunately been closed in Eden but we are hoping more will reopen soon to provide more dining choices!

Fabulous health food with local produce. The smoked Eden mussels were brilliant - and available for takeaways I really enjoyed my salmon and pea frittata. The rest of my group were really impressed too.

We had delicious scones, jam and cream here but sadly the coffee wasn’t up to par. It was lukewarm and bitter. I returned to the counter for some boiling water but it still didn’t stack up.More

Thanks for your feedback & though delighted to hear you enjoyed the scones, I am naturally disappointed to hear about your coffee; which we generally pride ourselves on. I would certainly have preferred the barista had made you a fresh cup and will follow up...More
