We visited with our Labrador, Morse, and were pleased to be able to sit outside in a corner out of the wind. Inside was very busy, but service was good & our meals were generous sizes.

It has a good selection of pies, sausage rolls and sweets. You can dine in so long as you have been doubly vaccinated. It is reasonably priced with good service. I would recommend it if you visit Inverloch

Rang up & booked but they lost the booking and seemed surprised when we turned up. I realise it's hard getting staff at the moment but I feel we could have been told they weren't doing a full menu at the time of booking. We...went out of our way to go here based on the reviews and were told once we sat down that we had to choose whatever was available from the display cabinets. Coffee was quite nice though.More

I was going for a walk and kept seeing people with coffee, so I went on the hunt for somewhere open early (7 am) on a Sunday. Found this busy little place. I knew the coffee must be good because it's a hit with the...locals. I wasn't dissapointed.More

We were on our way through Inverloch when we saw Vaughan's Cafe. We stopped for a bite of lunch. Nice cafe and the service was good. The meal was very nice and the staff were attentive.

So we picked the number one food place in Inverloch, but we were very disappointed. My choice from the menu (beef cheeks) was not available, so I changed to eggs Benedict with ham, it looked okay but all l could taste was a barbecue flavor...from the toast that had been done on the griddle. The ham was very light on couldn’t taste it and the hollandaise sauce had very little flavor. My partner had smashed avocado with humuli cheese substituted for goats cheese which she doesn’t like. It looked okay but the avocado was on the turn and it also had the same strong bbq flavor to the bread. Not sure where to go next, if Vaughan’s is rated at number one!!More

Great high quality coffee as prepared, by José & Jane and the team. Awesome friendly vibe. and very attentive service. I am always in for the scrambled eggs on sour dough, bacon, mushrooms etal. Breakfast was YUM !!!! Very full-some..... Cakes are excellent, as are...the Vaughan's exclusive Hot Cross Buns which should be made available all year.. Bravo guys...definitely the "go to" for great coffee and food. My guess is that it will get tooooo popular now and I'll have to queue up for my coffee.More

Not sure why the amazing rating. Had a caprese salad and it was ok. My other guest had the carbonara and the salmon and it was alright. I went out of my way to go here because of the rating but I didn't feel that...it deserved it. The service was average. This place has so much potential. Keep it simple guys people just want fresh food at a reasonable price!More

Hi there, we can definitley deliver meals to the local area, however it would be a meal that would need to be heated by the family as we would deliver during business hours..... not sure if that would suit. What did you have... More
