“Stylish little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

A group of 12 of us had lunch here today and I highly recommend it. We sat out on the footpath on a lovely summers day with a nice breeze. The menu is written on paper bags that are clipped onto a little stand. There is I think something to suit all tastes including an all day breakfast, and vegetarians. In all seasons I enjoy a bowl of soup and there were 2 choices. A couple in the group thought the vegetarian lasagne was really nice and it was a large serve with salad. The ploughmans lunch was also good value. Although none of us had any, the cakes looked delicious. Good coffee and a reasonable price at $3.50. The shop sells a range of oils, condiments, jams etc. And of course after lunch what could be nicer than a walk around the lovely shops in Daylesfords main street.

“Tickles your taste buds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Firstly....what a coffee! "No decaf, no skinny, no chai", its just great tasting coffee!

The food is on the smaller side, but all about taste. We shared a bruschetta and ploughman's plate (with extra bread). All fresh and delicious.

“Lunch at Cliffy's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

While visiting Australia we passed through Daylesford, stopping for a snack lunch at Cliffy's on Australia Day weekend. This is an interesting, small cafe/restaurant, at the entrance to Daylesford. It is a quaint old Australian building, rather cramped but very welcoming with off the beaten track food, sourced locally. The beer was locally produced and was tasty. The lamb pie with mint and peas was excellent as was the other food.
It was authentically "Australian, very welcoming and reasonably prIced. If you are passing through Daylesford and feel hungry then I recommend you try this place - you won't be disappointed.

“A hidden gem in Daylesford”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Had lunch at Cliffys last week. First time I have been to Daylesford for many years. What a great place. Will definately return for a good look around the town and another visit to Cliffys. The day we visited the food, wine, atmosphere and service was all excellent. A hidden gem!
