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.

A small hill top cafe seating at the main road of Olinda. Take a short break before you head on shopping those small boutiques around the corner. Price is not high, and food is decent.

Olinda Cafe is part of the history of the hills. Heather and Craig and the staff will make you feel so welcome. Multi-generations of hospitality make this a highlight not just of Olinda, but internationally. Consistently high standard in all things. An absolute favorite.

We had a lovely meal for lunch here at the Olinda Cafe. Loved the presentation and taste of our soup, pie meals, and our breakie the day before. The staff was very warm and friendly, even when the cafe was very busy. Loved how they...add two tea bags to the teapot. So civilised.More

We parked out back in their private car park, arriving before 10.30am Sunday - and the car park was nearly empty. We raced inside through the rear entrance, hardly getting wet in the rain. There were friendly staff inside ready to greet us, and show...us to our choice of table - the one in front of the stoked wood heater looked best (we could smell that warming aroma of a wood heater - very nice). The waitress advised us to place our order at the counter when ready - all good. My large long black coffee (in a mug) and the Toasted Fruit Loaf were delicious, and my wife could only eat one of the two House Made Scones with jam and cream (so we took the second scone home for Ron). This is such a pleasant cafe, with good car parking out back, and the wood heater, and some great memu items - we need to visit again and try some other dishes.More

An extremely cheerful and attentive group of staff! When we visited it was a very busy day, but the staff remained upbeat, smiled and quickly attended to our needs. We ordered lunch and were very pleased with their offering of a cheese and potato pancake...with salad. The additional fries were also delish. All the meals we watched being delivered looked amazing and hearty. It was warm and cosy inside and there was also an alfresco area. Well done Olinda Cafe! Highly recommend.More

We visited this gorgeous cafe and I was so impressed! Outstanding, accommodating and friendly service from all staff, they had a great outdoor area with heaters and were dog friendly! And the food was yummy too. So glad this place was open on a Tuesday...when a lot aren’t, we will definitely be back!More

Arrived in time for our daily coffee fix, lovely friendly staff, coffee was perfect and their yo yo’s delicious, but really we should have shared, didn’t need lunch after that lol! The cafe itself is set out well and has a lovely area out the...back with heating for the cooler weather. Would definitely go there again when next visiting Olinda.More

Olinda is a great place to visit when you’re up on the Dandenong hill, so much to see and food choices too. The air and greenery is just overwhelming great. We tried for the first time this cafe and we were satisfied with the service...and food. The lamb pie was great and the scones were reasonable not the best we have eaten. Overall was a good experience.More

This place is so consistent with perfect meals every single time we’ve been here. They are always busy but we have always managed to get a decent table. Service is always smiling and prompt. I always order the haloumi and zucchini fritters because i crave...them.. they are that good. The apple , rocket and mint salad is so fresh and lively too. My partner had the olinda burger and he said it was ‘really...really good’. Chips and aioli are awesome. I love this place. It temporarily closed a while ago and i was so sad.. just happened to be in the area and realised they’re back so had to go there even though we hadn’t planned to. Well done to staff there, you all do an amazing job.More
