The breakfast prices were well in line with those of Melbourne, but the food was good and coffee was outstanding. Pity though I didn't see the big mugs offered until I was paying as I ordered a few smaller ones throughout our breakfast. This would...More

According to my husband's bean finder app, this was the place to go for coffee in Lorne. He wasn't disappointed and went here a few times on our recent trip to Lorne. I got a hot chocolate and wasn't overly impressed with it. It wasn't...More

We stayed in Lorne overnight whilst driving the Great Ocean Rd from Adelaide to Melbourne last week. Unfortunately we chose Shells - there were very few people (4) there - perhaps this should have been a good indicator! The decor is rustic rather than comfortable....More

Loved the great selection both traditional and modern breakfast dishes. It's great for a vegetarian or someone looking for something different to try. Both times dinning there the coffee was a little weak and lukewarm so my suggestion is to ask for it extra hot.

This could be a super brunch spot. The fresh vegie juices come in large jars and are great. I asked for soft poached eggs with avocado and gluten-free toast. The eggs were over cooked, the avocado was not quite ripe and the gluten-free bread was...More

Decent souvlaki, awful strawberry milkshake (milk with strawberry flavouring at $6.50). European hotdog absolutely destroyed by piled on disgusting mustard. Tried 3 bites? could not physically eat it. Waitress did not ask how our food was despite seeing an almost untouched plate. Very very unimpressed....More

We had breakfast here, and it was great. I has poached eggs with mushrooms and it has a very tasty flavour indeed. I loved the way the eggs were very well done. I will eat here again next time I go back to Lorne.
