“Serious coffee and AMAZING breakfasts... Like the best we have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

What a gem! Unpretentious little cafe in the country with coffee like Melbourne and breakfast to rival hardware society cafe.
Don't miss this gem, ride from bright and burn the calories on the ride home ;)

“Pretty Porepunkah”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

What a cutie. Service was cheerful and prompt. Food was very good.
It was divine sunny day and the outdoor area was spot on !
Question? how do they churn out such great food from such a tiny space?
Best of all there was a waterbowl for Ruby Tuesday the wonder dog.

“The best French toast in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We are fussy about coffee and breakfast. Both were excellent! The French toast was outstanding. It helps that the cafe is owned by an American ex-pat. It has a great ambiance. This place is a real treat in a beautiful part of the world.

“Absolute local gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

How lucky to be able to get authentic Californian mexican style food in this great local cafe. The breakfast burrito was excellent value and unbelievably filling. coffee was better than most places we tried in bright. Wife had a bagel which was full of flavor. The chef really knows how to use his sauces. Only gripe is that we had to ride home and couldn't stay longer. But we'll be back next year with a car to settle in for the arvo. Oh, and the view of majestic Mt Buffalo is superb from the front of the cafe. Overall great location, great food and excellent value.

“Wow such good cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

I have visited Bright many times but never discovered this great cafe before. The soup was so amazing I went back a second day to indulge. Was so nice sitting in the sun eating great food.
