Lovely staff but food and coffee missed the mark. Everyone was super friendly and really accommodating. The food however really was ordinary. The smashed avo just did not marry well with the Gorgonzola, walnuts and pear. The coffees were tepid and lacked oomph. The meal...my partner had was also very disappointing. This could be a great spot but needs some tweaking. Could not fault the happy, friendly staff.More

Good fresh food, friendly service! Smashed avo was a hit. Plenty of outside seating, not much inside. Would def return.

Slightly out of the centre of Geelong but worth a visit and on the way back to Melbourne. Smashed avo with feta, smoked salmon and beetroot was excellent. Partner had full breakfast again excellent. Very friendly and welcoming staff.

Loved the touch of Asian flavours with the menu. Excellent eggs benedict with slow cooked beef and sriracha. Good coffee. Out of the way in an industrial estate but the quirky and light decor and being right next door to an antiques warehouse gives people...a reason to visit. Ample parking when we visited (it was school holidays).More

We stopped by on a busy Sunday morning and were greeted pleasantly and efficiently. We were seated at a table quicky and coffee and water arrived soon after. Friendly service guided our menu selections which were spot on! Highly recommend the Reuben sandwich and the...Pork bao!More

This place was packed but service was still quick and super friendly. Halloumi burger and lamb burger were delicious. Great chips and good coffee. Decor is really funky and loved the huge glass window that looks through to the antique centre.

In easy hailing distance from the main highway, Pickers Union is a groovy Insta-worthy cafe in an industrial area that is clearly modernising. Great coffee. Good service. We didn’t eat much but the menu looked good. We did try their donut muffins tho..... unbelievably delish....I’d actually drive there just for that.... give it a try. Thanks Broadsheet.More

We just wanted something small to eat and drink. This place offered that. We had the iced coffee and iced chocolate along with cheese cake and muffin. All I can say is wow, it was very filling for both of us and when next in...the area a place we will go back to.More
