Great coffee spot

Great find, good coffee and delightful homemade cakes & slices really to die for, nice relaxed spot to chill out ! Only negative was they had no decaf the 2 times we visited which made me sad, however i substituted with a lovely lemongrass tea .

We wandered down a side street as nothing much along the main drag looked enticing. Found this gem. Great coffee. Had two. Homemade style burgers. What a change. Husband had a slice also which you serve yourself. Great spot.

These burgers are not cheap ($$$) but are especially yummy and had to go back twice. Their coffee is great and it's a pretty cool vibe there.

We had some delicious coffee at this cool little cafe last week. I had read lots of glowing reviews and was not disappointed. Love the decor, quick service from friendly staff - almost felt like a lane way cafe in Melbourne but better! Pity we couldn't try the cakes and hamburgers - maybe next time.

I've been coming here for years. Glen has been making coffee in town for ages, and now owns and operates his own business. Hard working team with good quality coffee and nice cakes in a funky, alternative atmosphere, great to see the evolution of the business responding to market demand. Great to see the team working together and doing something... More

Love grabbing a coffee here every time I'm in Port. Great coffee and lovely cakes on the counter. No pretenses just great coffee.

I wish this place served yummy breakfast too, as well as big burgers (no gluten free no vegan). Coffee and cakes are the best in town, but opening hours mean that you'll find yourself at Whileaway Bookshop Cafe 9/10 times (eg after 3pm on Saturday).

Hey Erin, Thanks for your review! Our burgers are our first foray into food. We love burgers as much as we love the coffee that we roast and serve. We prefer to do a couple of things well. There are lots of places that do yummy breakfasts in town if your not in the mood for one of our killer... More

This place does superb coffee. You can't find better in Port D. When we visited they didn't sell much in the way of food but it didn't matter. We came here solely for the coffee and we weren't ever disappointed. Once I witnessed a trainee barista make a latte with too much froth and the trainer made her do it... More
