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 only average for the price. Bacon was poor. Table service was satisfactory. Beware if looking to halve the bill 50/50 on credit card with another couple. Flatly refused to assist. Never encountered that before and won't be returning.

Great coffee, excellent service - super friendly & helpful with local places to visit. The venue is very interesting & full of character. If in Daylesford definitely call in for a coffee &/or cake!

Found this little gem online by looking for best coffee in the Daylesford area . The reviews were spot on! Amazing coffee on the table within minutes . Local people also enjoying coffee which is always a good sign! Lovely shop selling local preserves, chocolates...and baked sweets . Lots of old world charm . Highly recommendMore

Great place for coffee cake and lunch. Lots of options, run by the same team as beppe but very professional and well executed. Loved the pear pastry and coffee and the genuine rustic nature of the building - this is genuinely rotting not fake distressed...- actually adds to the place, must have been quite something in 1850!More

While on a weekend away with my partner we picked Cliffy’s for our first breakfast in town. Sorry to say but we won’t be rushing back. Service was quick can give them that. The shop is cute and interesting browsing the shelves for jams, chocolates,...cakes etc.. But the coffee was Luke warm and cold by the time I reached the end, which wasn’t long… bacon was terrible. Eggs ok, hash brown ok. I’m glad we got there early as I wouldn’t like to wait in a queue to eat this food.More

Fabulously delicious! The place was extremely busy so we waited in line to grab a table. The staff are exceptional. All friendly and work like a real team not flustered with how busy they are. They just do what they do and they do it...well. The Turkish eggs were bliss as was the coffee. Customer service 💯More

We stopped by the town of Daylesford for lunch on our way back to Melbourne. While the place is not exactly at the centre of town, it was close enough. The place has that really nice charm, with a very nice atmosphere. There was a...short queue when we arrived but we were seated in 5 minutes. Food was of high quality and original, a modern twist to traditional brunch fare. The braised chicken on quinoa was a pleasant surprise.More

Worst ever french toast. Dry and tasteless . Berries were not fresh. Bread was dry and cold. Little effort to make it taste terrible.

Best place to eat in Daylesford. Best ambience, kind staff, quality food, coffee and general warmth that comes from the heart of an extremely well run, local place like this. Top notch always, so grateful we have lovely Cliffy’s in our town.

Seated in a fabulous spot right by the fire was the perfect start to the meal. I decided on the Billy Tea and I was very happy I did - full of flavour and served in a traditional tin mug. Well priced and large meals...- eggs Benedict with a mustard hollandaise and hubby had scrambled eggs with bacon, beans and a hash brown. Everything was perfectly cooked and came to the table quickly. We will be back!More
