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.

On entering I was requested to register on their covid system, a welcome change from nearly all venues in the Glen Waverley area. The waiter was attentive and efficient when I ordered. The food was fairly typical of many other places offering breakfast as it hard to differentiate poached eggs with tomato and smashed avocado. However, it was provided promptly and was accompanied by good coffee. A good find for me and, obviously by the number of people in the place, for others as well. I will be back

They do a lot of things right: friendliness, decor, atmosphere, presentation, flavour. Not good though was: coffee was only warm, serving size. We ordered an avo and beetroot breakfast with 2 poached eggs. It only comes with 1 thin piece of bread (should have been 2 pieces), a few tiny cherry tomatoes on the bread, maybe 7 pomegranate seeds and a smear of beetroot hommus. It was presented beautifully but quantity wise was very lacking. Not rushing back.

Love this place. Always a good meal be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. Been many times over the years, great service, good atmosphere (can sometimes be a bit loud). They open up the glass, frontage on warm evenings, giving it a Lygon Street feel. Varied menu, but I have my favourites, well mixed drinks and good coffee. Good location, central meeting place, plenty of parking. Since cutting their opening hours, best make a booking for lunch or dinner because they are always busy, takeaway meals also need to be pre-ordered or you will wait a while.

We ordered meat with chips and salad, expecting this to be hot, but it was only lukewarm, both our plates. There was only one option for shiraz by the glass and I've tasted better wines that cost less per bottle than the glasses we had. We've been there many times in the past, and this time we went because one of our party really wanted to go to try the Greek lamb cutlets again. But this will definitely be the last time we ever go there!

I have been to Cafe 57 many times. Their food, service and buzz has always been great. Today, my friend's meal was fine but they totally lost the plot with my dish. I paid $27 for a chicken salad. What came out was iceberg lettuce whites only (including core), browned avocado, limp cherry tomatoes, olives, fetta and grilled chicken that was tasty but a tad on the gristly side. Not at all satisfying - aesthetics or consumption - but their coffee was delicious and service quite good. I'm hoping this experience was just a random once-off and not a downhill slide.

Dined for dinner with friends. I had the pork cutlets with sweet potato mash, broccolini & honey mustard sauce. My meal was tasty. I also had a Prana chai which was nicely brewed & also tasty. Service friendly. Will return to try other menu items.

Returned for dinner with a friend. We shared the pita bread & dips for entree & I had the lamb chorizo salad for main. Food was tasty. Service friendly. Will return again as we're keen to work our way through the menu.

We go to this restaurant relatively frequently (one a month perhaps). We have a 6 year old boy. The food is always good and there are lots of deserts to choose from. The wine and cocktail list is solid. The service is friendly and appropriately quick, but there's no rush implied. Not amazing, but never disappointing.

Melbourne’s best kept secret! Prawn risotto or the prawn linguini is magnificent. Great club sandwich too. Attentive and friendly staff. Terrific atmosphere. Highly recommend. Already booked again. Grazie mille

Been here a number of times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The food was great and so was the service… this was on a Saturday night at around 7pm. Parking was also very good.

As happy guests for many years in particular supporting the business during lockdowns we booked a brunch. Unfortunately they messed up our orders for the drinks. We noticed other guests who came later had already their drinks. When we complained we just heard the standard excuse “We are super busy”, no apologies instead the manager with a teaching drive tried to explain that one bad experience should not influence my view after many years of great memories (?). The food was served before the drinks. This was the last time we came here. “Super busy” = other guests are more important, just shut up.

I’m a regular to this cafe if I’m in the area. It’s a real must the coffee is excellent the food, (I love the toastie & banana bread) but all the food is excellent. The staff are always friendly, it’s busy at lunch time so make sure you book.
