Stopped for a snack with a view. Good coffee was served and a delicious array of cakes for elevenses. Would I return,probably not... the lady seemingly in charge perhaps a little brusque for my liking.

Pleasant little cafe by the lake, friendly staff and plenty of local produce being used. The platter of local cheese, meats etc was perfect for a light lunch on a sunny day.

Fantastic food, fantastic coffee, the lemon meringue cheesecake is to die for and the view is amazing. Service is great..........best place to sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the lake with a nice glass of wine as well. Need to book a table though cause I have told too many people.........!!!

Thanks very much for your positive feedback. The crew here at lake cafe and deck are pleased that the food, local wine and service were all to your liking. The deck is indeed a lovely spot to enjoy views of the lake. Although booking a table is not essential, it is always wise to do so. More

My wife and I have been holidaying in the Yarrawonga and Mulwala area since 1983 and over the years we've seen a lot of Hotels, Restaurants and Cafe's in this area, rise, fall and some rise again. However this café has maintained a high standard for its food and service since it first opened about 15 years ago. We love... More

This place was recommended to me about five years ago , if it wasn't for that I don't think I would have found it . We visit Yarrawonga once a year and this is where we go. Location is lovely , but more important I guess is the food , which I can highly recommend , chicken and mango parcels... More

We were recommended this café from the tourist information centre in Rutherglen. We are so glad we listened. This little café is situated right on the lake with water views from the verandah. We had lunch with a view which was great and it was a perfect day as well. Lunch was good as well.

Great service, fantastic view,looking over the lake. Food was fresh and delicious. The coffee was only lukewarm, so if you go there ask for extra hot.

Thankyou for taking the time to review lake cafe and deck and your positive comments. We are indeed very lucky to be situated in such a beautiful spot. Everything we serve is produced in our small kitchen and our coffee is served at 65 degrees , which is meant to be optimum drinking temperature. This will obviously not suit everyone,... More
