“My local eatery of choice. Yummy food, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I eat or have coffee at oscars at least once a week. Love the food-sweet chili chicken and zucchini soup with crusty bread, oscars breakfast, and tandoori chicken wrap are my favorites. Love the courtyard in the summer, think its a hidden piece of paradise where its easy to pretend you're on holidays. Staff are friendly, fast and efficient. Great place to meet friends for wine or coffee or just take a break from shopping as its directly across the road from Ballarat's central shopping centre.

“Busiest place in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in Ballarat for business. During the week Oscars appeared to be the place to be...lots of patrons. Extremely diverse menu. Food wasn't too bad, and nice atmosphere. Not badly priced for what you get.

“Nice open style cafe/restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Oscars is your traditionally cafe/restaurant that does quite nice food. It doesn't have any of that wanky or overhyped food, just nice traditional cafe food (eg Caesar salad, open sandwiches etc) and with the nice open front and outback courtyard area it's great for a Sunday brunch style thing or just a casual coffee and cake etc
