Went in for a snack and that's what I got. I thought $8 dollars for a toasted ham and cheese toasted sandwich was a bit high. So I guessed it was going to be a big one a bit fancy all good. Normal sandwich you make your kids slammed in a sandwich press, asked for mustard for a reply of we don't have that? It took 15 minutes when there wasn't many people there.

Not sure why there are some unhappy reviews of this place; all I can say is that we had delicious food and enjoyed a peaceful lunch on their verandah. Prices aren't low, but they are well in line with other island venues. I had an omelette - beautifully light, fluffy and tasty. My partner had felafels with a salad that came with a tangy citrus dressing and great baba ghanoush. We also had scones with jam and cream - yum. It's definitely a cafe and not a fancy restaurant, but it's peaceful and the people who work there are super-nice.

Folks you have to remember that this is a seasonal place on a fairly small island. Yes it is a little pricey, but how else do they compensate for virtually no custom during the week. As a local we go regularly, and the owners, particularly Kathy, are always warm and friendly.
If you want a Melbourne fancy feed, stay in Melbourne, this is the country. Menu may be limited but quality is generally very good.

When you're ready for some pleasant relief from the main strip chaos and holiday crowds & in need of some real home cooked nourishment, head to the Silverleaves General Store. Tucked away amongst the tea-tree and gum leaves in Silverleaves, great hearty breakfasts & a lunch favourite for our family. One of our favorite spots on the Island whenever we visit - so hard to get a great coffee anywhere on the Island but you'll definitely score here! Knowledgeable on all matters dietary - Coeliacs well catered for! Be patient for your meals but what's the rush when you're on holiday!

Its cute, its popular but its overpriced. The coffee is OK not fantastic and the food is nice but very over priced ! $7.50 for a custard tart that was tiny.... come on ! I know Silverleaves is supposed to be the 'Toorak' of Phillip Island, I think the owners at the store think they are in Chapel St !
