This little venue down in High street Belmont is getting the good stuff done, with delicious bites and damn good coffee. If you're looking for a slightly different coffee experience then this is your place with different brewing methods such as Aeropress and Chemex available on the menu. The food is simple and brilliant with plenty of Vegan options and... More

Self confessed coffee snob but I love the range of coffees here. Easy drinking through to more exotic and specialised available. Plentiful menu. Yummy paleo/special diet options. Recommend.

This coffee shop has the best choice of paleo food including lamb salad and some delicious hummingbird or banana cake. Definitely a must visit

I've been going to lavish for the last 6 years and couldn't possibly find any better coffee in town! Lavish specialises in not just coffee but healthy meals. They make all their slices or baked goods on site using only the healthiest ingredients! The paleo snickers are to die for!!! The staff are knowledgable and very friendly. Well done lavish... More

We stopped for brunch on our way through. Coffee was OK, and there was a good range of gluten free offerings in the cake-y section. However it seems to be trying too hard to be trendy, but perhaps that's the Melbourne influence? Uncomfortable, cramped seating, in a tiny area. My breakfast burrito was drab and heavy. Uninspiring.

Went to investigate Lavish one afternoon about 3pm having noticed it on the High Street, and been intrigued to check it out, especially following a friends recommendation. As a recent returnee to my home town I'm embracing the urban renewal, growing coffee and foodie culture and all the dynamic associations that have been sparked in Geelong the past few years....

I used to visit this shop when it was in downtown Geelong but have since made the trip to Belmont to have the slow drip coffee and spritzer. Fantastic. They do nice potatoes in their jackets-yum yum yum. Very small venue but worth the visit. The coffees are great.
