This place has all the makings of great place. Interesting decor, great location for looking out the window, good coffee and an interesting menu but I can't work out why the couple behind the counter are in hospitality as they don't engage with the customers. I have been there twice now as it is a great place to sit on... More

This place often looks busy so we thought we'd try the coffee.....won't go back. Two people working on a holiday......probably not enough. The man making the coffee couldn't raise a smile or even a pleasant look! The lady was busy washing up and wiping the floor rather than serving. SO, coffee making had to be interrupted to take the orders,... More

Disappointed to read some of the reviews about the Central Milkbar. As locals, along with many other locals of Beechworth, it is a favourite with us.

The owners are always friendly and most obliging, they deliver coffees to staff from nearby businesses... More

Unfortunately we got no further than trying to order-Very unhelpful staff-No gluten free bread.How difficult is it, to at least have some Gluten free bread in the freezer?No, I'm sorry,can we help you with something else?-just no care at all.Poor customer service-perhaps it's time to move on?

So the one advantage of this place is it appears to one of the few places that opens early to get that very much needed coffee fix. Only problem it was more milk than caffeine. I can not comment on the food as I did not eat however from what I saw on the plate the food looked pretty good.... More

We had a loathsome breakfast here..waitress wrote order down, seemed waitress was also chef..but got it wrong and delivered only one of the meals we ordered. The other was a horrid roll that had a tiny piece of bacon on a mass of bread roll with raw spinach. My egs Benedict was on a slightly warm but not toasted English... More
