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.

Absolutely fabulous. The interior and exterior decor are just lovely and the coffee and orange cake 20/10!!!! The staff are just magnificent. They anticipated that 3 of us were going to share the cake so it already came sliced with extra spoons. Service above and...beyondMore

I had never been into Crystal Brook but had read good reviews about this cafe. It did not disappoint. It was really good coffee and I must admit to being fussy. The interior decor was also beautiful and it felt light and inviting. Friendly service...and lovely morning tea options. A unique cafe!More

It’s been two years since I visited last and I approached with some trepidation - would it be just as I remembered ? A gold star for consistency must go to the proprietors and staff of the perfect little cafe. I had the orange cake...with syrup and must say it was the best I’ve ever had. Worth coming to SA just for the cake❤️More

Called in here based on the review on TripAdvisor. It is in the old SA Bank building which has been done up as a fantastic café. Great coffee and cake and friendly conversation with the owners.

Dropped in for a cake and coffee and loved this place. It’s an old bank building lovingly refurbished into a modern coffee shop. Tea comes in an vintage china pot, muffins are huge, and service impresses. Definitely stop and check this place out.

Make sure you turn off the main road and head 5 kms to this great little township with a few hidden gems. One is Vault 35 which is a coffee shop inside a renovated old bank. Great coffee and food all served by really friendly...staff.More

We happened on this gorgeous cafe during a road trip and what a gem it is. We're very fussy about our coffee and this was the best we've had in years. Additionally, the building itself is lovely--a transformed bank with the vault containing well-priced 'treasures'...to peruse and buy. Service was friendly and attentive, and there was beautifully displayed food to tempt the hungry traveller. Crystal Brook itself is a great little town and this cafe adds to the reasons to revisit.More

A relaxing and delightful place to have a break. This old bank has been transformed with a lot of love, and it flows through to the customer. The outdoor area is well protected from the sun and wind, and the staff are so friendly, and...they make excellent coffee. A small lounge area could be used for small business meetings.More

Everything about this cafe is exceptional. A stunning high quality renovation of an old bank building. Tasteful decor, comfortable seating, excellent coffee, tasty selection of cakes, especially an assortment of cheesecake slices, very friendly and efficient staff and reasonable prices for such a sophisticated looking...establishment. Al Fresco dining also available if it's not too hot. Congratulations to the owners for this major contribution to a small outback town. This is a must visit cafe if passing through Crystal Brook.More
