Popped into this cafe for lunch on a wet and windy Monday, when most other establishments were closed. Quite busy and with a nice cafe vibe. We had UK visitors with us, and they were keen to try the local fish and chips (as we were too). Unfortunately, it was a disappointment - the fish was flake, which is fine, but it was simply dry, overcooked and tasteless, and the batter was chewy and stale. Seemed very much like it had been prepared earlier and just re-heated. Just not good enough. Coffee was good though, and we did see some other nice-looking dishes coming out of the kitchen, so hopefully, what we experienced wasn't typical.

Possibly the best coffee on the island and can get packed on weekends.

Has a great view of the beach and nice selection of kids toys too !

There are so many places on Phillip Island to eat, it is really good to come across a place that stands out and is extra special. MadCowes Cafe is one of those where it is extremely popular for good reason. Food was excellent and service was great even with all the people. Highly recommend this place.

We enjoyed a great breakfast this morning albeit that the weather outside was bleak...it was cozy & warm inside...all meals served with happy friendly local service. Always a must to visit whilst on the Island.
