    We love this café. We also admire Pete, Ebony and team and their efforts to keep the café open during this very difficult time. We enjoyed the food, which is always delicious, fresh and presented well. The coffee is the best on the Bellarine. Their barista is superb. And of course, the view is fabulous. Yesterday the weather was wild and cold but we were toasty warm inside. We are regulars at Pier St because the food is always yum, the coffee hot and delicious and the staff friendly, attentive and kind.

    Currently Pier Street is one of my favourite places for catching ups with friends for coffee or a wine with a cheese platter. I also love to pop in for a quick meal when I can't be bothered cooking after a hectic day working. The staff are always so welcoming and friendly. The coffee is great. The service is efficient and I can always find something healthy to eat at a reasonable price.

    Nice eatery, food was very nice, lighting was a bit dark - had to use my phone torch to read the menu! Could have been warmer on a cold evening noted by guests leaving their jackets on. Overall l would return but slightly dear if you aren’t even warm enough!! Lol staff were great, will return in the summer…

    Great restaurant, friendly helpful staff. Our table was near the door, so every time the door was opened a cold wind blew through which was a bit annoying. Probably could be avoided by putting up a stand alone screen to protect people from the draft through an opened door. Food was excellent overall we had a good experience.

    A lovely restaurant. Warm and welcoming to me and my husband and three grand kids under 8. Food was very good. The food took quite a while to come and was staggered. Although the kids came first which was good. Just a small point out. Overall great.

    Great little spot. Local food cooked freshly at very reasonable prices. The lower rating for ambience was that on the day we ate there it was a grey wet day and the light summery ambience (which would be great in summer) felt a little bit bleak. The service was efficient, warm and friendly. discreet.

    The fish was fresh and melted in my mouth. The only problem was where we were seated made me feel vulnerable to people walking in and out of the door given Covid is still an issue. People were literally standing behind me.

    Our visit was for breakfast, which was really nice. Food good, service good & good value for money. The only thing that distracts from being excellent is the extent of flies buzzing about the table & dead ones in the window.
