On the Australia Day long weekend this cafe handled a very busy breakfast time in expert fashion. While it was clear that resources were being stretched under high demand, the staff handled the busy period in very good cheer and managed to keep us all...More

I was craving poached eggs on toast and these guys didn't disappoint, along with good coffee... a note though, my friends had hard (overcooked) eggs, whereas mine were gooey and fabulous. They were a bit disappointed.

For a Melbournite it’s hard to find good coffee in small towns. The Cafe Velo is by far the best place to go for coffee in Bright, absolutely delicious! The staff were super lovely and the cafe has a great atmosphere, especially when you sit...More

I love going to Café Velo just for a coffee and one of their most scrumptious muffins, There is lots of room to spread out the supplied newspapers and read them. Atmosphere is always pleasant. Does get very busy in holiday or special event weekends....More

I am impressed by the number of bicycles on the balcony of this hotel. The cafe is tugged behind the hotel. They serve good coffee and good breakfast. I appreciate the curtesy extended by the owner in being so lenient with cyclists. It is located...More

Hot choc served on the deck was quite nice, but felt this place was a bit out of the way. No real atmosphere here, it was ok but nothing special.

Lucky to have had a couple of breakfast (best milkshake ever) and lunch here and loved it. Great atmosphere and on a nice day lots of tables out side and the food is great, will happily return next time we are in town.

Good morning, we were regulars over the past few years and usually turn up almost daily(4-5 days)y with 2-3 families for breakfast often after a bike ride. Your breakfasts were hearty generous and well presented.The venue was relaxing and a great place to visit for coffee and cake through out the day and even read a newspaper This year we came and were really underwhelmed compared to prev. years, so much so that none any of our family groups revisited. Did you take holidays around mid January as we can't understand the difference. The breakfasts were very basic and uninspiring and muffins were either rock cakes or doughy under cooked I only ordered Iced coffee (as i was late).and didn't bother ordering after seeing other serves. I wished I had ordered a milkshake after having the coffee. The service seemed to be quite young compared to the 20/30yr olds experienced previously. Sorry thought we would ask a question in case it was a family health issue or similar.

Run by cyclists for cyclists we are unashamedly laid back and easy going. Plenty of bike racks and lots of like-minded people. We are the only cafe in Bright serving Padre coffee. No smoking inside or out.
