Love the coffee....we visit regularly and arrive as the most mouth watering scones are removed from the oven! Can highly recommend a raspberry and white chocolate scone washed down with an amazing mocha.

In comparison to other local cafes we both felt that while the coffee and tea were nice, the charm that we've been accustomed to wasn't there. The scones and jam were very good, the handmade chocolates a delicious sweet treat so we'd go back again when looking for quite cafe without the hustle and bustle of other venues.

Coffee was okay but nothing special. The lemon friand was flavourless and dry. Service wasn't too bad. Good location.

Scones were huge and watched them being baked. Have them with cream and you are in heaven. Coffee excellent and service good. Nice area on sturt street with plenty outside seating. Great local.

Positives: delicious jams and chocolates Negatives: expensive food, watery hot chocolate and unprofessional staff speaking about personal lives (hot guys, ugly guys, friends hooking up) in ear shot of customers.

I often visit this café as the latte is the best in Ballarat. Interesting and varied menu and a great place to meet friends. The chocolates are a feature and hard to resist!
