We have visited Cafe Moby many times during regular visits to Torquay. The location is lovely with a view over the ocean. Recommend their smoothies and curries.Would give this place a higher rating if service was more efficient.Not sure if the owners realise but during busy periods many people simply turn around and walk out.We have done this ourselves many...

the coffee and food is lovely. Also the play area at the back of the cafe is very friendly for kids as there's a playground, sand pit and toys to keep them busy, us adults can enjoy our coffees while the kids are playing. Good place to while the day away.

Enjoyed a great lunch with friends. Good bottle of wine, pumpkin ricotta quiche, pulled pork burger, caramelised onion pie were sufficiently filling for us. Flavours good. Service unobtrusive. Finished with coffee, tea and a shared muffin. Lunch for four and around ninety dollars.....and we sat in the sunshine. What a great May day

coming here for breakfast on many mornings has been a good gathering spot for my family. yes sometimes there is a wait for your food thats because its crowded with everyone wanting to taste the great food, the overall atmosphere is very relaxing thats why we come not to mention the great view of the ocean.

We went there for lunch when we were visiting the Great Ocean Road. Very nice atmosphere and decor, warm, comfortable feels like home. Menu has a great selection. We tried two specials of the day, lamb curry wrap and chicken leak pie, both are very yummy and a very good serve. Service is good. Strongly recommend to visit:)

Going on rave reviews we tried to dine here. We found a vacant table, dirty, peeling paint and browsed the menu. Warned by people at the adjoining table that they had been waiting 40 minutes for 2 wagyu burgers priced at $18 each so we hesitated before ordering anything. When their food hadn't arrived 5 minutes later, we chickened out... More

Great breakfast menu and fantastic coffee. Love taking the kids here as there's so much room for them to run around an play. It's a great atmosphere. A local favourite we keep going back to.

We love the back yard for the kid friendly factor but just can't cope with the queue or the 20 minute wait for coffees to come out. Maybe that's just a fact of life for summer in Torquay though. Food reasonably prices and decent quality
