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.

Never judge a book by its cover. This cafe looks modest but has excellent baking. Great quiches salads and pies. All home cooked. Great taste. Lovely spot. We will be back I hope. We have quiche omelette and apple pie.

Went with family for my Mum’s birthday. The service was great, the food was amazing - the menu is a little bit fancy without being over the top, and can cater to both the more and less adventurous. The cakes were delicious, overall the whole...experience was fabulous. On a sunny warm day, sitting outside would be lovely. Will definitely return.More

Had no idea what might be on the menu, but saw some yummy looking scones in the window, so went in to ask. So glad we did! I had the Spanokopita, which was amazing, and made right there. The others had the salmon with avocado...and potato rosti, which they loved too. I think they make certain items each day, charge a flat fee, and that’s what is served - there’s only a small kitchen. Atmosphere was lovely with lots of interesting stuff to look at and buy, and you could sit out on the terrace for the view if you wanted.More

I wish we lived closer to Effloresce as the cakes are incredible! We visited Metung for lunch and after walking by their cakes in the window we had to try one!! They had a rose water and fig pavlova cheesecake and it was probably one...of the best cakes we’ve ever had. Definitely planning our next trip back to Metung to come back here again!More

Quaint cafe serving delicious coffees, smoothies and super large omelettes. Lovely views of the ocean from the courtyard to the rear of the café. Lovely young ladies waiting the tables were fun and friendly

Famous vanilla slices? Not on weekends! Kitchen closed between 11 and 12. In that hour they're deciding what to put on the menu. You can have cake, but not the famous slice . You cant have an egg between 11 and 12 either must be...cake but not the VS. My advice is preparation. Extremely disappointed. Obviously still finding their feet.More

Popped in here for a coffee one mornin and sat outside for 2 reasons - 1. We had our dog with us and 2. because inside was full - obviously the locals love this place and I have to say I can see why. The...service is so nice and friendly - the coffee is ok and they really welcome the 4 legged friends who come to visit (although I am not sure that the resident dog is as enamoured!) Thank you.More

If you want home made tasty food this little cafe is the place to visit. A small family run eatery with delicious food and cakes made on the premises, the list of cake selections changes all the time but you must get in quick as...they sell almost as they hit the display.More

Despite advertised open times for this place saying “CLOSED” for every day of week on the TripAdvisor app (?) this place is definitely OPEN! Quince cheesecake was delicious, but coffee very second rate, weak in flavour & no creamer. If you’re a discerning coffee drinker...(like us) this place is not for you. Service was friendly but very slow, 2 coffees & 1 cake took 15-20mins. However nicely presented cafe, very clean with lovely assortment of cakes, chocolates, wine & other produce (not all locally made) & gifts. Would have given 5 stars but for poorly made coffee.More

So nice to see this site open again after so long being empty. Makes Metung look alive again. We had eaten at the Metung Hotel so came across for coffee after lunch. Beautiful coffee so much creama on the Long Black which so many find...hard to achieve. Even some of the supposed Baristas in Melbourne. Very varied menu and great selections so will have to come back and enjoy a meal as well. $4.50 for the coffee but well worth it and so lovely to sit out on the deck looking out across the jetty and park. The staff are very friendly as well so really worth a visitMore

If you didn't grow up in a home or had a grandma or aunt that baked fresh treats regularly, then you're in for a treat. The smell coming from this little cafe is truly amazing. I'm not a sweet tooth but if you love cake,...scones, and anything pastry then go no further. Even though I'm a local and frequent here often, it took me a long time to discover this gem in Metung. If you're a bit of a coffee cafe snob it's probably not for you. This place is like going home, it's full of real people, real food and just good old fashioned charm. I'm a coffee addict and it's my daily grind, just right all the time. Give this little gem a go, you won't be disappointed. Oh, and give Betti a pat too, she's the mini Schnauzer that has a charmed life, probably will be sound asleep out front. EnjoyMore
