Went here on a chilly autumn day and found a lovely cosy sun drenched cafe overlooking the Yarra. Food is not too shabby too. A nice outing and a lovely stroll around the area or hire a row boat..

Thank you Robert and the whole team for an unforgettable wedding day. It could have been chaos as the heavens opened just before the ceremony but you remained calm and created an indoor sanctuary for our guests where we could say our vows - thank you for your support and sensitivity. The food was simply beautiful and the praise was... More

I had a nice lunch here with my family and a friend from QLD. The meals were reasonably priced. I was a little disappointed in my chicken BLAT (aka burger)...it must have been the thinnest chicken strip I have had in a long time (plenty of room for improvement). However my friend had the seared smoked salmon and she said... More

The manager (I think her name was Ebony) was very rude and not very accommodating. We had 13 people, and first the manager didn't want combine tables. We asked if there was any reservations, but she said no so I didn't see a point why she didn't want to join the tables. Then we were waiting for some other guests... More

A great location sharing the morning coffee with canoeists and ducks on the Yarra. A peaceful place close to the City. Good coffee and drinks but the food options could be better. Plenty of parking with good access.

I was invited to a function at the Studley Park Boathouse Cafe but could not attend because there was no disabled access. The lady who I called was very helpful, she even went outside to count the number of stairs I was expected to ascend and offered to help. Thank you. But this is discrimination, again. There must be access... More

Met a friend in the city who brought me here for breakfast. It's one of the prettiest places to enjoy an outdoor meal on a sunny day. Our waiter was super friendly and very attentive. I couldn't fault the food or service. The food came out fresh and hot , there were no complaints from any of us. I will... More

Had a very pleasant coffee here a few days ago - a beautiful Melbourne morning (yes, we have them!) beside the Yarra River. The cafe has a great selection of delicious breakfast items at reasonable prices and the service is very friendly. But you cannot beat the location and the coffee. Just be aware that around 11am a swarm of... More

The Studley Park Boathouse is by the river, it's a great place to hang out. You can hire a boat or a canoe and go boating on the river. The food is good, honest food that will fuel your activities. By the way, the Studley Park Boathouse Cafe is on a side road. It is not easy to get to... More
