Lovely place for breakfast. Friendly staff and well presented food. I had Halloumi, eggs, grilled tomatoes with rocket and toasted baguette. Eggs were perfectly done, (this fact alone makes it a winner for me) halloumi beautifully grilled and lovely fresh peppery rocket! Had a great latte too! Prices were reasonable as well.

We had amazing time with friends on that night, actually its a little farewell dinner with one of my lovely friends.

Visited Village Cafè on Thursday night with my partner, after the electric blackout that stopped the town for a while. The place was quite busy so we've been told that there would have been a wait of 45 minutes for the food as all the customers sat at the same time. Being on holiday we didn't mind waiting a bit...

Located off the main street between the golden arches and Woolworths, this Cafe' is worth finding. The food was excellent and the floor person (only one waitress this visit) was as impressive as the food and drinks.

The staff were very friendly, even giving our daughter a free little milk/chocolate drink. The food was amazing, full of flavour and taste. The prices was also very good.

I entrusted my 30th birthday dinner to this cafe and was very happy with it. We had mexican with the hot rock, cooking the meat ourselves. Made it both a tasty meal and a fun one, reasonably priced, good location and friendly staff.

We go to the Village Café regularly for coffee and food, and the service and product is consistently high quality. They look after the locals and there's always a friendly vibe there too. We highly recommend the Village Café in Airlie Beach

I was in Airlie Beach for a few days and had at least 1 breakfast, 1 lunch and 1 dinner here. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable (needed if you've never had a Hot Rock meal before!). The food is just glorious. Brilliant position to people watch!!
