The Turret is an excellent cafe! This cafe actually makes its own cesear salad dressing, instead of squeezing it out of a bottle like most places. The cos lettuce is crunchy fresh, the bacon and croutons crisp and not greasy. Perfectly poached egg atop, and can request anchovies. Love it. Regularly enjoy their soup of the day too. Today it...

A group of six recently visited for breakfast. We regularly visit different venues for breakfast and had never visited The Turret before. Service started well - offered a drink while being seated. Other members of our group arrived shortly after and they were also offered a drink. After about 10 minutes or so we were ready to order our breakfast.... More

Great atmosphere for breakfast, lunch, coffee, cakes. They have a great catering service as well. The owner frequents front of house and is a gem! Forget counting calories and head straight for the cake counter.

Easy parking on side street, and great food. I've had the raspberry/ banana something bread twice and it's incredible. Good coffee and fast service. Never had an issue here.

Stopped here for breakfast one morning. Lovely meal and amazing chai latte. A little on the pricey side but happy to pay a bit more when the service, coffee, and food are always excellent

We enjoyed the friendly and efficient service, even when the restaurant was busy for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Drinks were quick to arrive and even though the service of main dishes was rather slow, we all finally enjoyed the generous serves - vegetarian breakfast is to be recommended, as is the full breakfast and some very elegant looking eggs...

From time to time I find myself in Ballarat for work. I couldn't get a park near the cafe I usually go to but saw this cafe and it looked busy, which is always a good sign. It was lunch and I was able to get a table. There was the regular menu and a daily special menu. I had... More
