Great coffee, awesome selection of food and great value for money. Always look forward to visiting Springs Deli Café in Hanmer. They also have a great loyalty card system, buy 5 coffees get 1 free.

“Old lettuce & soggy tomatoes, most food uneaten”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Calling in for breakfast as a group of 9 we looked forward to a good feed to start the day.
First impressions were promising, with the cafe looking tidy and a friendly smile behind the counter.
Coffees were great, but then the meals arrived.
This is summer, so fresh salad & tomatoes should be easy right?
No luck, my BLT Bagel had black slimy edges to lettuce and I initially though that I was served semi dried tomatoes. Obviously the tomato was cut yesterday. The snow pea shoots were chewy , suggesting that they were old also.
This was repeated on my associates breakfast and we found that most of the meals (full breakfasts in most cases) that we ordered, were only partially eaten.
Other issues: Soggy, fatty hashbrowns, over and undercooked eggs (on same meal) chewy poached eggs.
Really not what we expected for $20+ meals with coffee.
A nice smile & good coffee do not balance out the poor meals.

“Delicious Brunch”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our sweet corn & feta fitters with bacon today. The presentation of the dish was excellent. The combination of flavours along with the chutney & whipped cream cheese were wonderful accompaniments & totally enhanced the flavours of the dish.The coffee too was very good. I am a lover of high quality, affordable food, this meal was up there as one of the best brunch dishes I have ever eaten.

“Weird toast”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Ordered toast with butter & Jam. 2 pieces of toast great, the other two had been grilled with the bacon on the griller & cooked only on one side which is what you get if you order a cooked breakfast. So bacon grease does not go with jam. Sorry guys, big failure! I was going to complain but decided a review is a better way to go.
