What wouldn't you like here, coffee was strong hard to know what to eat it all looks and sounds so great, staff was helpful and polite even though they seemed to be busy and the decor was a relaxing and inviting, loved the fireplace. Great work

Recently found this place and very happy about it.. although my waistline is likely to suffer. Sensational coffee, very friendly staff.

Thanks, relaxing and cosy place to settle in for a coffee and cake, good options for both food and seating (couch, table or outside). Keep it going.

My wife & I had lunch at The Turret on New Year’s Eve 2013 after spending the night in Ballarat & heading back to Adelaide by car.

This cafe has nice decor & ambiance. The service was very good. The cafe served delicious & interesting meals; although the mushroom soup was far too thick. Good coffees too.

I had reserved a table for lunch for a group of friends. When we arrived the table was set with menus and cutlery. The food arrived promptly and the coffee was great also. The cakes are to die for. It's just a shame it's so noise with the wooden floorboards and it caters for lots of drop in coffees. Otherwise... More

There was too much spinach, in everything. I didn't have a choice to not have spinach.

The cakes at The Turret are amazing. Not only do they look spectacular but they taste devine. Won't buy my cakes anywhere else! It's worth going here just for a coffee. Always great service, efficient and friendly. A Ballarat gem!
