Tender steak and yummy chips

The Hog's Breath Cafe although it has a rather off putting name should not put you off visiting as their steaks are something different one is used to. Thanks to their special treatment they are wonderfully tender and have a lovely beef flavor. Try the wonderful chips too. Of course there are many... read more

I’ve tried their wraps and burgers and they have been fresh , tender and satisfying and at $9.95 are very good value. They also have a vast selection of main meals which are large in size so...

at Ozone there are plenty of places to choose from this is my least favourite, food often cold and soggy fries, stake poor quality. much better stake place a couple of doors down. can not work out why the place is often full maybe it is just the hogs breath name they are trading on.

There is a big name to follow you into eating at this place but I didn't really feel as if me parting with my money was anything special for them.

We visited our first Hogs Breath in Qld over 20 years ago, so were very happy when they opened in Victoria. My in-laws live near Knox so we introduced them to Hogs Breath. We weren't sure if 80 year olds would like it, however much to our surprise they loved it and we go there for dinner nearly every time... More
