Bought takeaway coffee here and it was very good. Had planned to visit a highly rated cafe nearby but couldn't get in their front door. So decided to give this place a try. Glad I did. Really happy and friendly staff member who made great coffee. Definitely would recommend.

Had a very ordinary breakfast here. It was not very busy but the service was rather slow. In fact it took a long time for our meals to arrive. Of the 3 meals only one was up to scratch. I am a mushroom lover but their mashies were the worst I have eaten,or not eaten as the case was, were... More

Sturt St was busy on a public holiday where you still had to fill the meter for the car park. One cafe didn't have room and cafe Europa was also bursting with numbers. We settled in, ordered lattes and BLTs and weren't disappointed. Service and food were both good. Well done!

Decided to give this cafe a try for brekkie after being recommended. Sorry we did now. Asked for an extra hot flat white with no froth but received a latte (not sure why baristas can't deliver a flat white - perhaps it's due to laziness???). Ordered big brekkie requesting poached eggs and toast to be on the side. Half an... More

Chose this one because it wasn't as busy or noisy as some of the others - open at 7am; had the big brekky which was very filling - the freshly squeezed orange juice is great! Excellent coffee.

I have to be honest and say that I usually attend Europa when the nearby restaurants are bustling and full. However having said that, the food generally is good, but not consistently. I generally have been there for lunch and the specials are not of a consistent standard, sometimes overseasoned, sometimes not at all. The soup of the day is... More

I was glad I found this place. A few locals were already having breakfast at 7.15am on Sunday. Staff were helpful and friendly. Coffee was fresh. Big Breakfast I thought was a little expensive, however when it arrived it was a large portion and tasted Devine. Scrambled eggs were also light and fluffy. Must try if in Ballarat.

Had all day Breakfast Lunch on Easter Monday. Whilst service was a little slow, (although) busy , staff were friendly and food was good. Would go back next time I'm in Ballarat
