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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This cafe 100% on all fronts. Very friendly local owner/operator "ladies". A real vibrant rural feel about the whole operation. Cool and spacious inside. Very clean. Lots of locals and heavily booked for lunch even though a Monday. Meals looked good. For us so we...will go back on other trips from the Gold Coast to Victoria.More

Wonderful to see this business back in the old but fully renovated building. New furniture with inside dining or on the deck. Wonderful friendly staff.

Friendly staff and a pretty garden location to stop and have a cup of coffee. The lady took our order of two coffees and we sat at one of the tables in the garden. The old store next door seems to be being renovated to...be incorporated into the cafe. This will be good in case of bad weather. The coffee arrived quickly but was we felt average. However, it was a good break in the journey.More

Coffee was very nice and very quickly served. Great spot for coffee and a bite to eat. Simply chill in a quite part of the world whilst partaking of a caffeine fix.

We celebrated two birthdays ( with two couples) in a good atmosphere. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We were there for two hours without noticing, so were clearly enjoying ourselves at this venue. Great company in a delightful place.

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the food - the best was the breakfast wrap (still served at lunch - small serving but toasted and scrumptious. There is limited seating both inside and outside - so probably best to book ahead.

We are relatively frequent visitors, sometimes with our dog. We have never had anything but a great experience here. You can safely ignore the couple of negative reviews. Friendly courteous staff and some of the food is different to run of the mill available at...most venues. Lemon myrtle cheesecake is to die for and the herb and cheese scone with capsicum butter is the best savoury snack around. Well worth the short deviation off the highway.More

My husband and his friend met at Miss Nellie's today for a breakfast and catching up. They could have gone anywhere but chose to go here and support our local business. After ordering coffees and food and being in the cafe for half an hour,...the waitress came up to their table, put a RESERVED sign on it and in a rude manner said they need to leave in half an hour as this table is reserved now. We have never ever experienced this in any other cafe or restaurant in any other town or city before. Or even other country! Where do you learn to treat customers like this?? The food might be home made and nice but you still need to look after your customers. You deter local business like this. Would not recommend.More

I love our local cafe Miss Nellies. I cannot fault anything. The homemade food is absolutely delicious, great coffee and fresh cakes, scrumptious high tea. The staff are always courteous, friendly and polite. The atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxed. I highly recommend.

Called into Miss Nellies for morning tea. There is seating inside and out and easy parking. We had tried to visit the day before but it was booked out and only takeaway was available so during holidays you may have to book ahead. I had...Devonshire tea which was enjoyable with 1 scone and plenty of cream and jam. The cafe is rustic in style and we all enjoyed the atmosphere. Would call in again if passing.More

Needed a driver break and got off the highway and stumbled on this gem. Lovely little coffee shop/cafe. The staff were really friendly and helpful and served us with a smile.

We are driving from GC to Sydney and decided to look for the nearest best coffee while on the Highway. 1st Coffee is Weak. So if your a coffee meticulous you’re not gonna like it. 2nd yes we are fully aware of the COVID safety...thing but just because we’re asians we are not allowed to use your toilet. We felt disrespected and the way the lady (who got our order) looked at us was so racist.More
