“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We had lunch on Good Friday and despite being busy, the staff were courteous and the food was fantastic. I had the soup of the day and my girlfriend had a sandwich and we wolfed down both our dishes despite not being too hungry. The food was just too good not to finish!

“General Store ok, town Horrible!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

The general store seems ok. But wye river is an awful place filled with bad karma. My girl and I usually get on great, but in this town we just fought and fought. It took us over 3 hours to find r lodging even though the whole town is tiny. I am normally a great person, but in wye river I failed to live up to those standards, and lost my temper, and thats because wye river made me that way. I just hope that in time I can forget this place. Ps. General store has good range, and is well worth a visit.

“Melbourne hipsters come to the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is a great little cafe. It's like someone picked up a cafe from Melbourne, including all the hipster staff and plonked it down at Wye River beside the beach. The coffee is good, the food is good. It's busy on long weekends and in the summer school holidays, but so is everywhere down the Ocean Road. Definitely worth the visit.

“Great little cafe with awesome food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Delicious soup, bread and lemon tarts! Loved the cosy atmosphere, especially as it was cold outside. Service was a little off, but forgiveable considering everything else.

“Great coffee & tarts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Often call in for a coffee and the world's best lemon tarts. Can be quite busy but service is still prompt. A bit on the expensive side (never thought I'd pay $13.50 for a BLT but it was actually worth it!) Wood fire in winter is very charming.
