Was a little skeptical of this place as I am not a huge fan of crepes, however ordered one of the vegetarian ones and it was great! Also loved the truffles, they tasted AMAZING. Pleasant little surprise and would definitely go back. They're open until 10pm on the waterfront, great for a snack/meal later in the night

I had one of the Veg crepes with spinach, feta, cheese and sundried tomatoes in. Was absolutely to die for! Amazing! Great service, decent prices for what you get (huge crepe for $12 AU) that fills you up. There are also sweet crepes that comes with mountains of ice cream, fantastic looking deserts and hot/cold beverages. So things for everyone... More

Food was great although slightly expensive. Out of about 6 staff members not one of them smiled unless it was to each other then they went back to how they were. My husband and I even tried to be extra courteous to them and they just looked at us puzzled and walked away. Not your usual response.

Raw food and very poor customer service! Received half raw crepes and was told that's the way it's cooked! This after enjoying many cooked crepes at market square, poor service from the franchisor Mark, would have thought being the boss he would know better! Lost my friend and I for life! All we wanted was to have a well cooked... More

We have eaten often at the Belmont, Geelong West and Waurn Ponds Panache Restaurants. The crepes are amazing. The Blueberry Kosciuszko Crepe, Death by Chocolate or the Mushroom Crepe are usually our choices. The only negative I would give the restaurants is the noise factor. They all seem to be very very noisy. The coffee machine, banging of items, people... More

Poor service and poor quality coffee. A cappuccino mug came out as milk and when we paid extra to have coffee taste we walked away after 10 more minutes of waiting. Not good enough. Get a barista who knows what coffee is about and can serve more than 12 people at a time. Ordinary

Our favourite place for breakfast. My favourite is the crepe Benedict. For a sweet crepe you must try the blueberry Kosciusko. It doesn't have the best view in Torquay but does face north and has the sun shining in the large front window nearly all day. Well worth a visit. The only down side is sometimes the staff are louder... More

I've only ever had cappuccinos at this particular Panache, as there are quite a few around. Never fails to disappoint in the coffee department! Atmosphere is fantastic. Location is perfect. Laid back and very welcoming

My boyfriend had a latte and I ordered a long black. We sat towards the pier and had a good view of the sun set. It is a good location and lovely coffee.

We go to Panache quite often, for just a coffee or sometimes a crepe too! Always good food and service no matter which one I have gone to around Geelong.
