Hi, we ate at this restaurant while in Torquay, and thought it was excellent. Posting it would allow us to write a review for it.

Cafe Moby

is listed on google map view

Reviewed By MarijanaFi - Melbourne, Australia

Very filling and big breakfast, kept us full until dinnertime!
Ordered the mug-size coffee(mine was with almong milk) and it was very nice and creamy.
Kids enjoyed the playground at the back, which made our stay at the cafe even more enjoyable as we were able to sit and enjoy our brekkie for a long time.

Growlers can often be very busy on weekends but you can't fault the sensible hard working staff. We popped in just for coffee and were looked after quickly and with a smile. Thanks. We will be back!

Town and Country Pizza & Pasta

Reviewed By 611mariec - Geelong, Australia

On a very warm evening I chose to dine here, and I sat inside rather than the outdoor tables. The temperature was comfortably cool, there was good spacing between tables. The service was great and my meal was very satisfying. Not fine dining, but good, honest food at good value for money. I have had the pizza and the pasta and found both to be very good. They also have a nice selection of drinks.

Reviewed By MyHoliday8 - Geelong, Australia

This place is SO overrated. Breakfast comprised of cold coffees, eggs with stone cold bacon. 2 people $48.50 The waiter twice said "so how was everything" as I tired to give him feedback twice he walked away.

Reviewed By Tracey16_10 - Echuca, Australia

We went for dinner after Reading online reviews and found the food and the service to be excellent, very busy and therefore a bit noisey at times but the food was fresh and really well priced. Staff were great, even though they were managing a lot of takeaway orders as well. Would highly recommend.

The Pond Cafe

Reviewed By Sagawithattitude - Oxford, United Kingdom

This little gem we popped into for a bite of lunch having looked at the other cafes in the area. Staff were very hospitable and it was very busy. Obviously popular. Fantastic view of the sea. Not a great fan of brown rice salad but ordered it to be healthy! Wow it was totally amazing! It should be called rice salad with a touch of magic! Should be on your list to try!
