    I ordered the Quinoa salad There was too much quinoa and about half a cup of craisons and not much else. Therefore I was disappointed as I had high expectations However my friend ordered the Caesar salad sandwich and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    What an amazing cafe. Food and coffee was just delicious! The staff were so accomodating. We have a son who is anaphylaxis to egg & they check every step of the way as to what we had ordered was going to be safe for him to consume! Even done to the ice cream in his milk shake as it was a ‘May contain’ listing.. as a parent this makes such a huge difference when dining out. Thanks Team Lorna we will be back again and again!!

    Food was lovely but I booked a table for 3 and we were seated at the front door on a table that sits 2. They did move us to a larger table on request. Food was lovely however didn't get a chance to Oder cake etc as they asked us to leave after 1 1/2 hrs as they wanted the table, a time limit was never mentioned at the cafe or when booking.

    Make sure you’re not planning to do anything after you arrive. Sat for 45 minutes and still no one had taken our food order. Tables around us were in the same situation with one complaining it took 90 minutes for their breakfast to arrive.

    We love Lorna Cafe; my only suggestion for improvement is that we often go for breakfast and sometimes have finished our fruit toast before we get our coffees. Maybe trying to coordinate timing of food with coffees would be good.

    Wonderful experience at this Cafe every time I go. I took friends for the first time and they loved it. Plenty of options for different dietary requirements and great service, value for money. The only problem is parking, it is a popular spot for good at lunchtime.

    First time here and was very impressed. Lovely set up, good menu and service. Was very busy with people coming and going all morning on a work day which showed was obviously very popular. Only down side is minimum on street parking. Might need to park across the Hwy at the supermarket. Will definitely be back as not too far from home. Also I had the eggs benny and they definitely need to be bottling and selling that caramelised fruit side as it was sensational.

    A little gem in the area. We had a nice time celebrating the father's day. It was great that they could cater different needs of a five year old 😊. Food was fantastic. We had a great time.

    Lorna is an almost hidden gem. The customer service and attention during the visit were very good, not obtrusive, ensuring our dining needs were met. The quality and presentation of the food were really very, very good and added to the overall experience, after all, I did go there to eat. Surpassed my expectation and will visit Lorna again I'm sure.

    I booked to have breakfast with friends at 930am and at 1015am we were told by staff that we only had 15 minutes left and that we have to leave because they have another booking. We were still eating our breakfast and we hadn’t even finished our coffees. If I had known that the booking was only for 1 hour I never would have had breakfast here. So if you want to enjoy your breakfast and time with your friends you may want to go somewhere else. I will never eat there again.
