“Not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lots of big cakes and decent, strong coffee. Food is average though, nothing special. Service is good.

“Big serve! Lacked the people factor?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

For such a busy street I'd expect they'd have more people in this place. There's something missing. Our coffee and cake was okay. The servings were too big? Not sure I'd usually say that, but they were monster sizes and put me off! Feel like they need to improve the service, or music or something?

“In need of a revamp, was a disappointing visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Place is in Chapel Street. Cakes are unbelievable. But the venue is now way over due for an update and usually empty of patrons probably due to its dark uninviting decor. ( red booths splitting upholstery) to make our experience worse waitress obviously an overseas traveller, was totally uninterested in the job, had no idea how to serve the desserts, ( didn't know u heat sticky date, we had to send back twice to heat and to add ice cream ) had no idea re coffee choices just told us to look at menu and order. The experience was so off putting ( and we have eaten at other Cafe Geko's as well as this one before) we nearly walked out, but we paid the $9 for the dessert had no coffee, and will definitely go elsewhere next time. Disappointing that this well known Melbourne place delivered so badly. Hope others have a better experience, as the cakes are delicious if done right!
