I regularly visited this cafe and was satisfied until the manager decided to join the girls serving behind the counter. The atmosphere changed instantly with his arrogance towards the staff.

Colin and I with two lovely friends for lunch! However I must say the following: Good points: premises immaculate, displays nicely done, salads quite nice, reasonably priced and very friendly staff! Bad Points: potatoes, supposedly cooked in their jackets were NOT so! Potatoes were scrubbed but peeled and were very hard to cut through. How they can be promoted as... More

No-one can equal Ellie May's for baked potatoes. They just have all the elements right. Three fresh salads of your choice come with the potato and they are yummy. Had tuna pasta, pesto pasta and coleslaw today, all delicious. I have had lots of baked potatoes over the years but Ellie May's are by far the best.

He then made the most popular waitress redundant through no fault of her own which further affected the morale. I will not be giving them my custom in future.

I ordered a Hot Jack Potato Meal for $12, with a cappuccino. You are offered three choices of salad, the staff seemed to be very impatient if you spend two extra seconds to choose your salad. Another cold face if you ask what was inside the salad. Ask for a tissue paper, yet another cold face. I finished eating and... More

Very disappointed! Got the worst service ever today. Ordered a breakfast that came with a coffee. I asked for a cold drink but no option given. Our meal came and we were given filthy cutlery for which we asked a replacement. The lady snatched them up and stormed off putting the dirty cutlery back into the tray with all of... More

The big breakfast was delicious!!! Very generous servings and scrumptiously cooked. The staff were very pleasant and very obliging. We had stayed in a hotel near by and this was a much nicer (and cheaper) breakfast option!
