    I'm a fan of Somers General Store as I live close by and the menu suits me; enough variety without trying to do too much. Also important; good coffee, lovely friendly vibe. I regularly visit for coffee, brekky and take guests here for lunch.

    We've eaten and had coffee here on a number of occasions both inside and outside and have quite liked our experiences, on this occasion, disappointingly the Fish and Chips which we have really enjoyed we found difficult to eat as the battery was incredibly hard. As the place was full it was very noisy and made having a casual conversation difficult. Choosing to sit outside would have been smarter.

    A gorgeous lunch was had with four adults and four children at the TSG. The service was on point, attentive but never intrusive. The food was delicious and polished off by us all. The milkshakes disappeared in seconds and the coffee was exactly what was required. Loved everything about our visit today and my guests were super impressed with The Somers General and were already discussing what they would have on their next visit! Thank you TGS Team.

    A great little cafe with a lovely beach vibe - sitting outside on the deck opposite the beach with a nice breeze. The service was very good and really good food - great hit coffee. We will be back.

    Afternoon tea at Somets General with my parents was great! Service was friendly and efficient and the coffee was excellent. One small negative was the pastry on the chocolate velvet cake. It was dry and tasteless but amply compensated by a filling to die for. Over all, a lovely destination and afternoon tea.

    Meat eaters and vego were all well catered for - nothing was left on the plates, which is a good sign. And we didn't have to wait a long time for the food to arrive. Staff were attentive but not intrusive. A very pleasant experience all round.

    Somers General staff were so friendly and the service and food were excellent. Wonderful coffee and our favourite brekkies were poached eggs with hollandaise and the ricotta hotcakes. Outdoor tables were perfect for early morning. Dog friendly on front deck. Book ahead during summer peak

    A limited but eclectic menu well presents and well cooked. The food service was a little slow, possibly because of a large crowd. I would have no hesitation going there again.

    The menu is very limited and I found it difficult to find something to choose! Nothing very appealing. Need to include more basic options, would appeal to more people. When planning new menu, just keep it simple. The hot chocolate was superb though. Service excellent, great vibe. But if there are noisy kids running around, which there were, it bounces off the walls.

    we sat on the deck outside and it just happened to be a beautiful day, so even though you overlook a road & carpark, you can still see the water & opposite island, (Phillip Island I think) the staff were attentive & friendly, menu was small but ample and what we had was delicious. coffee was good. overall, very nice indeed and we will return

    Recently lunched there, but was disappointed by the rather limited menu choices, and by the meal itself. Service is friendly. Window view of the sea, lovely. Coffee good. Not much atmosphere to speak of, but understand things are still getting back on track after Covid. Think we'll stick to our takeaway coffees from there. 👍
