“Afternoon Tea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Called in for afternoon tea on our way home from doing the Black Dog Ride, needed a hot drink and some cake. Hot chocolate was great but very disappointed in the Lemon & Lime slice. No tang in taste at all, if you make ones of these it has to have some bite and tang of the citrus. Also when served it came out on the plate just on it's own, really should of had some cream on the side.

“Great to look at art while you eat breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

A lovely little café where you can get good food and coffee and look at art work (and buy it) at the same time.

“Great music and coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

In the Main St of Lancefield this Gallery Cafe offers homemade meals and a good selection of beverages. I am told by those who indulge that their hot white chocolate is to die for. There are few large tables as well as those catering to smaller groups and two lounges in the front windows for a spot of people watching.
A couple of tables provide outdoor spaces for smokers.

The owners John and Gemma run a gallery space on the white walled venue with new exhibitions of local artists mounted each month. You can also browse through an interesting selection of jewellery and handmade giftware.
On the 4th Sunday of each month is an open mic/jam session from 2-5 where musicians get together from around the surrounding district.
The cafe also provides internet access.
We like to spend a bit of time here after wandering the Lancefield Farmers' Market (on the 3rd Saturday of each month.)
