Great For Dessert Lovers But Service a Let Down

I dined at Bay Vista just two nights ago and the butterscotch and banana waffles I ordered were delicious. Reasonably priced and generous with the chosen toppings. I would have dined there again had the service not been so below par. The staff served our order without drinks, which we didn't... read more

The food is good, a little pricey. But the staff need to work on their service and get their heads around the seating. My family and I have been seated upstairs on two occasions and both times we are left waiting upstairs for the rest of our order. The staff come up with some silly excuse like "the plates were...

Always a pleasure to enter such a busy yet organised cafe that serves more than dessert. From breakfast to dinner, the cafe's menu offers pages and pages of luscious cuisines.

A very popular place but as per a previous review, it's a great place to get a great big sweet fix but I think it's expensive for what it is. Family of four, each had a dessert - single waffle, soft serve, a big bowl with 3 scoops of ice cream and a sundae - cost $70. Very busy so... More

If you like desserts this is the place to go!!! So many options on the menu from waffles to savory and sweet crepes. Make sure you try the mushroom and cheese crepe as well as the nutella one with bananas and berries 👌🏽

We went on a weekday around 9:30pm and the place proved to be hugely popular, we hardly found a table. There is a ~40 page menu with everything-sweet-you-can-imagine, ranging from 12-30$. So first of all, you cannot take anything small. We ordered cheesecake, ice cream, and one of the huge something-Junction bowls. The portions were huge, which I guess makes... More

Huge portions but not inexpensive ~ best to share. Impressive menu of sweets including crepes, ice cream, waffles and more. Both sweet & savoury items like pancakes, cakes, desserts, and fountain items. Wide variety, for some too many choices. Café, coffee & hot chocolates light meals, bagels, and famous big ice cream bowls (about $20AUS). Best to share! Very busy... More

Visiting our grandaughter in Kirrawee for Christmas & our daughter & son in law promised to take us here for the "best" dessert. They weren't kidding! Strawberries & Ice Cream with delicious dipping chocolate, Caramel Cheese Cake, Peanut Butter Crepe, Lemon & Sugar Crepe with a cappuccino rounded off our selection. Extensive menu & nice view as well. We're happy!

Bay Vista serves very fancy desserts. A bit pricey (between 15-30$) for a dessert, but you will be getting something quite special. Nice ice cream selection.
