    A$25.00 per person

    Prepaid

    Multiple dates available
    For bookings of 8 people and more (including children), we require prepayment of $25 per person to secure your reservation (roughly the average cost of a drink and a meal). Due to us being a small venue, it is likely that we may have to decline several future reservation requests for the same time slot - as well as turn away walk-in diners on the same day - in order for us to hold tables for your party. Groups of 11 & more will be spread across two adjacent tables. However, you and your party will be given an entire section of our cafe to enjoy amongst yourselves. We hope to see you, your family and your friends soon to enjoy the Mammoth experience! Love, M x

    The food is amazing, especially the chop chop salad. My only criticism was a rather annoying dog who kept barking on the table behind me outdoors

    Mammoth CafeResponded on January 8, 2023Hey Nicky! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! The Chop Chop salad is absolutely delicious and we're so glad to hear that you think so too! We're sorry to hear about your experience with another patron's dog during your visit. We hope this won't be an issue for your next visit at the cafe. -Mammoth x

    Food & service excellent. Only complaint is that where I booked for 3 outside, they only had space for 3 at a shared table; no separate tables for 4 for example. I should like to have known this beforehand.

    Mammoth CafeResponded on January 3, 2023We are so sorry to hear about your experience at Mammoth. We are aware of the issue that you have mentioned regarding being sat next to the food pass. Whilst we unfortunately cannot move the location of our food pass, we have alerted our team to be extremely mindful of our patrons sitting directly next to the pass at all times during service.

    It had a great relaxed & friendly buzzy vibe. The staff were smiling, friendly & welcoming. The ambience was great. The food delicious & coffee superb so we had two coffees each with our lunch. It was buzzy in that as more people came, it became a little harder to hear one another but only slightly. We chose to sit inside but outside dining looked very comfortable as well. Definitely a big fan & will be back! Cheers!

    Love mammoth. The food is always great and the table waiting staff are also always wonderful. This time the staff at the payment desk were pretty rude and aloof chatting and laughing with friends and not even looking at us once as they took our money. Expected more from Mammoth but hopefully it was a one off because really, apart from that experience I would say it's one of the best cafes in Melbourne

    Overall a lovely place and good fooed. The only comment I would make re improvment is that the potato rosti I ordered was more like a McDonalds hash brown than a rosti - the quality wasn't quite there.

    I went to Mammoth for a lunch with my friends (we booked in advance as we were 7 people). The place has a very relaxed and welcoming vibe, and even though it was quite busy, it didn't look crowded. Great and friendly service, taking our orders timely and bringing everything at the same time so no one had to wait for their meal. And the food looks and tastes so good! A presentation worthy of Instagram. Great portions full of flavour.

    I usually love my experience at Mammoth but on this occasion I was disappointed that my booking for 3 people outside was given to someone by mistake. These people were not asked to move. The staff were friendly and apologetic saying that it was their mistake. We eventually accepted an table inside and were offered complementary coffees. We arrived about 10 minutes before our due time. Marianne Klepfisz.

We understand this would have been frustrating and we hope the rest of your experience was positive despite this mistake!
