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.

We enjoyed coffee and croissants for a morning break sitting at the outside tables. The staff were very pleasant and efficient taking the order and bringing it out. The coffee and croissants were beautifully presented in smart table wear. The cafe has a friendly, smart...casual ambiance with great food and coffee.More

One of my go-to cafes in and around avoca. I think the deluxe bacon and egg roll might be my favourite b&e anywhere… hands down. Also love the coffee here. Very high quality.

You must try their Deluxe B&E Roll. Unbelievably good and unique. Coffee is also very good quality. Worth a visit.

Absolutely great burgers. Excellent in all accounts. Away from the beach crowd. We enjoyed The Boy and Rose had to offer. Most of all the team at the Cafe was delightful. Especially the chief Victoria who made our burgers

Cafe had a nice beach vibe we were excited to try it out , drinks were really nice , food was awful - my husband had a deluxe egg and bacon roll , the bun came out soggy and the egg was not cooked it...still had raw parts. I had the north avocado and not only was it smothered in some sort of pickled bettor more than avocado but I asked for a roasted tomato on the side what I got was a tomato cut in half that had been put on a grill for what seemed like 10 seconds as it was rock hard and could not be cut through. For a busy little restaurant I expected really good thing especially after all the good reviews, but safe to say we will not be attending that cafe again.More

Was so hungry and this delux bacon and egg sandwich really hit the spot. Being a creature of habit l would have gone every day for breakfast. Just back from the beach one street and well frequented by locals this is a gem

..phere here. The coffee is good. The staff are pleasant and the food is ok. What more could you ask for? OK, beach views! But it's only 50m from the beach to come in and relax.

Staff are friendly, chilled, professional and always seem to go the extra mile Coffee is sensational - probably helped by the fact that they focus on quality over speed Interesting menu with emphasis on healthy tasty ingredients

Loved this friendly cafe on the northern side of Avoca. Walkable from where we were staying and the perfect place to get a coffee, breakfast or brunch after a sunrise walk on the beach. Love all the friendly pooches and their owners. Authentic and comfortable...local spot.More

Bacon and egg roll was good but for $13.50 it should be! Large coffee comes in a cup which would be lucky to be a medium anywhere else!More

Hi Danny! We are so sorry you do not agree with our prices. Our takeaway cup is actually the same as a lot of our fellow cafes. The reason we don't have any larger size is because we believe that coffee is best enjoyed. 2...More
