“A community spot that feeds your belly and your soul.”
Review of Now & Not Yet

Now & Not Yet
Ranked #4 of 29 Restaurants in Warrandyte
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 November 2023

Been coming to this gem of a cafe since they first opened their doors – feels like we're part of the furniture now! The warmth and friendliness of the staff, led by heart-of-gold owner Derrick, make each visit a truly pleasant experience.

Best coffee in Warrandyte, hands down. Whether it’s a quick bite, leisurely brunch or Tamil feast, we’ve never been disappointed. Plus, the prices are just right – good on the wallet and great for the taste buds.

It's inspiring to see this not-for-profit cafe's commitment to social causes, its support for local artists with an in-house gallery, and particularly their advocacy for asylum seekers. There's a truly vibrant cultural dimension to the cozy ambiance.

In a nutshell, this isn’t just a cafe. It's a community spot that feeds your belly and your soul. So, if you're after fantastic coffee, scrumptious eats, and a place that truly cares about people and the arts, you've gotta check this place out.

we all ordered coffee before looking at menue - when it served they were all cold. Told waitress and all she could say was that they were busy and must have been sitting on the bench. No apology, offer to heat them up or repalce.

When the popular cafe two doors down couldn’t accomodate us, we walked into Now and Not Yet for breakfast. First impressions were of a teenage team manning both the coffee machine and the floor. Limited menu but the coffee and food came out quickly. Coffee had good flavour but was on the weaker side. Hubs was happy with his breakfast roll but the poached eggs on two pieces of dry sourdough with no butter offered or provided on the side, lacked flavour.

Interactions with the unpolished and inexperienced service team made us feel uncomfortable and we left quickly after finishing our meal. Was surprised this cafe had such positive reviews based on our experience.

We won’t be returning especially when there are so many stronger options in Warrandyte.

Four of us enjoyed a very nice brunch here recently. All dishes were cooked well and presented well. The menu has a good range of options and the coffee is excellent. We haven’t been here for a while but will certainly return.
