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.

Our family recently visited this restaurant and sampled a variety of dishes, all of which were delicious. However, the service left much to be desired. There were several mishaps, including bringing us orders intended for other tables before realizing the mistake. Additionally, a broken salt...shaker resulted in an excessive amount of salt being spilled onto one of our meals, necessitating cleanup with a napkin. The waitstaff's lack of professionalism was further evident when they couldn't distinguish between soy milk, oat milk, or almond milk for our coffee order. Despite these service issues, the restaurant's environment was clean and beautiful, complementing the overall dining experience. Ultimately, while the food was enjoyable, improvements in service quality are necessary for a more satisfying visit.More

We approached this café imaging it would be a bit like ‘Grandma’s House’ food and would have quick ‘snack’ type options for a low key lunch….we had seen scones advertised on the sign outside, and that was the sort of small lunch we were seeking....Once inside we found the place was huge, and my God so was the menu! I do not think any of us had ever seen such a massive menu before. It is a place offering ‘all things to all people’….and boy were there a lot of people! There are no reservations and the turnaround on tables is quick but the people are packed in like sardines…so don’t go in thinking you’ll enjoy a quiet relaxing restful lunch! It is really NOT the place to go when you really just want something small and simple to eat. We did manage to find a couple of smaller things on the menu – like a bowl of soup, garlic bread, and those scones – but you can see their business model is to pump out huge hearty main meals from their kitchen and charge accordingly. The quality seemed good but the prices are pretty high for a very casual place (despite the size of the meals), and especially view of the fact you order at the counter and then receive higgledy-piggledy service. Our group of six received our various drinks and dishes at all different times so that was annoying as some were finished before others started. But it is certainly a place to head if you want to (over!)fill your stomachs on a cold winter’s day!More

Had breakfast here and the food was lovely. I had the avo smash with bacon and poached egg and my husband had the big brekkie, both were really nice. The bacon was a standout as was the sourdough toast.

I had coffee and besetting cake here. Coffee was good but the cake was average. The inside cafe’s ambience is ok but you can sit outside which is more pleasant

We have been here before and it was great food hence coming again. Being local we just wanted a nice Sunday breakfast. When you spend $21 on a big breakfast and it is advertised as "eggs how you like" you expect they can give you...egg white scrambled eggs. Well no, the very rude woman taking orders said the chefs were too busy to do it. I told her it takes 1 second to separate an egg. The place was about a quarter full. Not even a sorry from her, even when I told her that was rather disappointing. I was ready to cancel the orders and walk out but we were hungry. Dirty glasses, bent cutlery. Service awful, bacon wasn't cooked properly, more boiled than fried.More

Purchased 2 pretzels to take home to Adelaide. They were so stale, they were inedible. Cost me $11.99. Very disappointing.

We have had breakfast here 3 times whilst visiting Hahndorf. The food is served in good time, it is hot and delicious. The coffee is awesome. All whilst sitting beside an open fire, great atmosphere.

A big sign outside saying best coffee in town but sadly it was not. It was okay though. I often say that going to a cafe can be an experience not just somewhere to eat/drink. It’s such a shame when you can see the staff...are obviously not happy. This was the case on our visit. No-one had a cheery word or a smile right from entry to ordering and then delivery of food. We had the sourdough fruit toast which was nice. Prices are reasonable for a tourist area. Probably wouldn’t go again.More
