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.

If your door is open and you don't publish opening times on the front of your building, don't act crappy when people come in looking for coffee. Not the first time I've had my head bitten off by a surley server. Last time I decided...not to come back and I should have stuck to my guns, it's clearly the business model. Tip guys, don't be rude to the locals!More

Sat at outside table, waiter looked at us 3 times and walked inside, didn’t acknowledge us even though he looked at us, waited 10 mins, watched another group sit down and be served before us, went inside to ask if it was table service to...be told they are short staffed, tried to explain what had happened to be asked why I can’t wait 2 minutes , staff shaking their heads at me like I should just sit down and shut up and wait while everyone that came after me got served, used to be a great cafe with friendly staff, don’t mind waiting if you know, very disappointing, 2nd no time in a month we’ve had to go in and ask if we can order and made to feel we’ve committed a crime, lost us won’t be back, a simple hello, won’t be long, we’re short staffed or busy etc could have a avoided an unpleasant experience and lost customersMore

Terrible service if you are sitting outside. Expect to wait forever to be served. Also, all of the staff inside wearing their masks around their chins. Very arrogant when asked about this.

I usually come here for a light lunch, that usually being a toasted ham and cheese sandwich, followed by iced mocha, which is my favourite drink. It's actually a little out of my usual way, but I come here whenever I can, because the sandwiches...are delicious, with generous layers of ham, and the iced mocha is simply the best I know of anywhere in or near Melbourne. I don't drink hot drinks, but I presume that sensational quality would translate to there also. They used to be open Friday nights for dinner, with a menu that changed often, with a seasonal slant, and I hope they resume that again some time, as it included many delicious meals. Highly, highly recommended.More

Lunch at Kofi Bean was sensational. Good quick service and pleasant wait staff. Are the special marlin burger. The burger was tasty generous serve and the chips were crunchy hot and well seasoned. Wavy beef burger gets the tick of approval. Pumpkin pizza was a...let down with too much tomato sauce that was more like a tomato paste then a pizza sauce. Coffee was very good. Thanks a lot we had a wonderful mealMore

Headed back to this place after a long absence from Main Street Croydon. It was busy and vibrant. The service was great and the food matched the service. Loved the coffee! Glad to see it is still offering a good meal and coffee after all...these years.More

Other breakfast cafes in vicinity are now better without the wait of an hour from ordering to table. Busy Sunday morning so experience was spoilt by over noisy environment and inattentive staff. Overworked staff never answered my query as to how much longer and were...unapologetic when food finally arrived as wait appeared the norm to them. Usual type breakfast fair with nothing that stood out and Pancakes that have shrunk since a visit some time ago. Don’t think we will be back.More

My friend and I stopped at Kofi Beans with our huskies today to have a coffee and some food. Our dogs became a little rowdy and knocked the table we were seated at and smashed a glass and spilt the drinks. We felt terrible and...insisted we would pay for the broken glasses but the staff assured us it was okay and these things happen all the time, replaced our coffees, ensured us and the dogs were okay and re- situated us while they cleaned up. We really appreciated the service and level of compassion for the situation. Sam and Joseph were fantastic and we will be coming back again purely because of their help and service.More

Great coffee shop with lovely outdoor area front and back. Tasty food, fair prices and polite waitresses. They do a very steady take away coffee trade with their Expresso machine churning out a mean cup of java. Worth checking out if you’re in Croydon.

This cafe has been around for years, although it has had a couple of different owners. Still a wonderful place to eat or just have a coffee. The food is still pretty good, and the service is fantastic.

Been here a couple of times now but find the food a bit hit and miss. I am not a fan of sitting outside but suggest if you want to chat be outside. Feels very squashed inside, tables jammed up too close together. Food ok,...but nothing special. Coffee very much depends on who is making it as not always the best I have drunk. Doubt we will go back, other cafe's are popping up in the area so you have quite a few choices .More
