The space inside is a little cramped, but the staff are nice and the food is pretty good. We had the eggplant chips, burger with chips and pita with dips, but the menu had good options on offer. It's a good cafe option in Dandenong.

We were headed to the Dandenong Ranges and to stop for breakfast. Easy parking, warm service, and lovely breakfast and brunch options. The mushrooms on toast were amazing!!!

Three of us had lunch here a couple of days ago and what a surprise! We had arancini, good ol’ chicken parmie and a grilled lamb salad that was to die for! We all enjoyed our meals - my lamb was moist and tender, the balance of the meat, pearl cous cous and salad was spot on and the dressing... More

Mainly for those in the know this quaint small hidden treasure has great food, service and atmosphere. We had an intimate lunch with work colleagues and the food came out quickly and tasted great. Good prices too.

The Rueben is fantastic. Been here often never disappointed. Soups are tasty. Daily specials board to choose from. This place is what Dandenong needs. From great main dishes to great French baguettes or just coffee with cake. Has upstairs function area we arrange for office lunch at a larger table.

Visited this wonderful little gem with 3 colleagues for lunch. The atmosphere, food and service is worth a return visit. The food is different and scrumptious. The coffee, which we received on the house (who still does this?!) was great. The prices were reasonable and the staff lovely and efficient. Highly recommended.

Aside from the great team and service, Ginger Jones brings a bit of inner city cafe culture to the South. Walking in off of the street, the smell of smoked meats and coffee will make it hard for you to now want eat there. This has been my local for nearly two years. We have held work functions upstairs with... More

Such a great breaky, coffee was bang on and the service was A-grade. We were staying in the area and checked the online. reviews. Reckon it was the call on the hash browns that dragged us in, and they dint disappoint. Service was 'smokin hot' and a giggle. Plenty of locals dropping in for starter coffees for the day. Thanks...
