“Way overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

$37 for 2 burgers and ONE small fries. (No drinks.)

I had a chicken burger. The piece of dry chicken was real small and didn't come anywhere near the edge of the smallish size bun. Come on! Really? We can buy chicken fillets for $5.99k at home. What is that? A slightly bigger piece of chicken would cost you next to nothing.

My wife had the (overcooked)lentil burger which at least filled the bun.

Look, the taste is very good, but the cost is exhorbitant and the serving size is too small (we had chicken & lentil burger).

Oh yeah, and they forgot to put the tomato sauce in the take away bag - which cost me $1.

For $5 more, we had a great meal at the Lorne Hotel the night before.

“Tasty burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Originally we stopped in Lorne for a coffee, after viewing the menu, we ended up buying a burger too. I brought the what a pickle burger, which was very tasty. I would recommend stopping here if like we were, you are driving along the Great Ocean Road and would like a takeaway coffee.

“Delicious burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

A burger specialty outlet with very limited seating but great for take away and either eat beachside or take back home to enjoy. Operated by the owner of Pizza Pizza (also in Lorne).

“Cute place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I was on my way back to the airport from the great ocean road and wanted a quick stop for a snack. I had a great little experience at this place, and the staff were very friendly and helpful considerign that I had a very short time. Very cute place for Breakfast and Lunch.

“Breakfast burger - no need for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Had a fantastic coffee and breakfast at Bottle of Milk. The weather wasn't good in Lorne but we totally felt on holiday when we walked into this funky cafe. It has excellent food and a fantastic atmosphere.
