A local shop tries to give great service. Very attentive staff but still get some orders mixed up. The food are a bit small in serving. Taste is very ordinary. A bit pricy for the quality of food and place.

As always the coffee is good the food good with breakfast in particular a highlight.

It’s simply the staff at times can let down well 1 member anyway. This doesn’t stop us going back of course. But why???

This is a gorgeous local cafe in a quiet village environment. Service is warm and local with great coffee offered with really great breakfasts and lunch. Always nice to stroll in and have a coffee or wine under vine covered outdoor verandahs. Friday night fish and chip nights have the added joy of Allan selecting one of many guitars to sing and welcome any talented guests for “Open mic nights” ( in contrast to LucaB2002s comments..this is amazing value for under $15!).an ideal place for a lovely local experience, specialising in local produce,away from the hustle of Cowes.

I went back to this nice cafe last weekend with family. The service was excellent and friendly. Only waited about 40 mins for our food but not a problem as weren't in a hurry. My seafood basket was lovely and good value.

After sometime at the go karting in Phillip island we visited silverleaves general store and cafe for lunch. I was delighted by the service and the food was quite good. However when we came back there on Friday night for dinner, I was appalled by the so called “entertainment” and the difference in quality of customer service from the lunch I had the other day. The entertainment was really just the chef playing a few tunes while he wasn’t cooking, unfortunately we didn’t hang around long enough for the performance but I would assume that he would close up the kitchen when he wanted to perform.

I felt sympathy for the young staff members at the cafe as they were struggling with explaining one of the TWO dishes on the dinner menu. (The dinner is available on Friday nights only hence the small amount of dishes).

The food was only just above the quality of the local fish and chip shop, another “general store”.

After muddling up most of the order they still had the nerve to charge us for tomato sauce, the nail in the coffin. Truly a kitchen nightmare.

Thank LucaB2002
