I had the flourless chocolate tart which was close to perfect. My partner had the old fashioned vanilla slice which he enjoyed. Coffee and hot chocolate just ordinary. Waitress was very cheery and apologetic when I showed her the couple of pieces of baking paper I'd removed from my mouth. $25 for our afternoon treat.

Vela 9 is open from 2-5 pm on Sunday afternoons, with live music. We settled in, had a glass of wine, listened to the music. When we went to order an antipasto platter at around 3.30 pm we were informed the kitchen had closed. The only food available was cakes from the display cabinet. I'm not sure the kitchen even...

During the busy Easter weekend I came to Vela 9 for lunch. Upon arriving at Vela 9 a lovely waitress approached my friends and I with a smile, informing us to take a seat where we pleased. There was a wait on coffees and food but, my god, was it worth it. The coffee was incredible, made by a very... More

Breakfast today was great. Sun shining, sat out the front, staff extremely attentive(but not pushy), eggs perfectly cooked & a good almond latte. We'll be back in future.

Have been numerous times and unfortunately have watched the progressive demise of what was an amazing experience under the previous owners but that has now steadily declined to lazy cooking and service. Arrived for breakfast close to end of service but due to not being served for 15mins had to have lunch menu instead. Ordered a soy coffee and milk... More

First visit & l wasn't disappointed. Magic day so sitting outside was the go! Very friendly service - my latte was superb & flourless orange cake came warmed with real cream (may even have been double cream). Delicious, moist & moorish! They've got live music all Easter & it might be a regular? Good experience & worth a try.

Great decor, smiling and obliging staff on arrival with my family, after doing a walk by other places for a gourmet breaky in Inverloch. Kids pancakes - non left - no complaints = happy. Portobello mushrooms, avo, eggs and greenery was my order and two double shots of bean = delightful. Wife had corn fritters and the relish something else!... More

Delicious coffee. But should consider hiring another coffee machine to cope with the demand on busy long weekends. Would save turning away customers who don't want to wait 30 minutes for their coffee! Surely management knew the cafe would be extremely busy for the Jazz Festival prior to March 11.
