A great place for locals and visitors

We are take-away regulars and occasional dine-in patrons at Freddie's Lavelle Street cafe. The food is great, the setting is intimate - and specially lovely in spring and summer with outside dining, and the personal service makes you feel extra-welcome. Highly recommended.

Quirky ambiance, very upbeat vibe and wonderful coffee! Stopping in for a cappuccino has become a morning ritual. Love the hand creams, candles and jewellery offered for sale as well as the local art on display. Definitely worth stopping in!

Our first visit and it was good. Freddy is the man - eccentric, involved and passionate about your food. For a French guy he makes pretty good Italian dishes and great French meals. Staff are great, real, and they look after toddlers and kids very well. BYO so you can soak it all up, a newer but welcome addition to... More

We recently visited Lavelle St Café with a large group of friends. The atmosphere is great and its always busy. Food is very nice, and the menu is extensive. Hard to know what to choose cause everything sounds so yummy! Service was quite slow on the night we visited, and the meals came out very staggered. Some people were finishing... More

A small "French-styled" cafe in Nerang, with al fresco seating under umbrellas. Quirky decor is complemented by great service. Friendly - this is the epitome of "friendliness" from all the staff, without being intrusive. Do yourself a favour and enjoy the bacon and egg roll on Turkish bread with home-made hollandaise sauce. Coffee is great - as a bonus! Well... More

I dropped in here for a coffee, not knowing any cafes in the area. What a great surprise as Nerang is not renowned for great service! This is an excellent cafe with friendly staff and excellent coffee. The Almond milk cappuccino was terrific.

Nerang is not known for it's nightlife but there is this special little place in Lavell St that is well worth a visit. We went recently for a double birthday celebration....and we loved it. It's simple and small but the atmosphere is magical! It's an Italian restaurant with a French owner/chef with one of those "larger than life personalities". His... More

Maybe all the best parts of life are always hidden… and this lovely little street cafe is no exception… An interesting combination of a Pizza restaurant run by a very enthusiastic French Chef. The food was not just good, it was VERY good and I think that not one person had any issues at all. We were a large group... More
