Good feel eatery. Appears to have loyal customers. Great Coffee with a good brekkie offering. Enjoyed eyeing off the desserts cabinet. Quirky little, cosy rooms to sit in or you can enjoy the couch on the verandah. A good size garden and area at the front to enjoy the view.

This place has super potential. Laid back and relaxed! Opposite the beach! An amazing building! But just lacks that little bit of care with customer service!

Super busy on the weekend with a queue to get in. Line moved fairly fast and was able to get a seat easily. Lots of outdoor seating out the front with ocean view or in the rear garden. The wait was worth it with a substantial breakfast delivered to the table. My meal had some great flavours and was very... More

Great food here and a fantastic playground out the back for kids. Also opens early which is great if you have young kids like us!

Moby is right on the Torquay foreshore across from pirate park. The front seating area supports lovely views as well as being dog friendly which makes it a great pit stop after a walk. The menu is very trendy incorporating local sourdough, chia, black tomatos and green beans with breakfast. Not to forget smashed avocado with dukka. If you are... More

For those of us with small children, "family friendly" can mean anything from a place that has a highchair to this little cafe. With a huge, enclosed outdoor area with multiple cubbyhouse/climbing frames; sandpit and climbing wall - this place will let you have your coffee/brunch in peace whilst the kids work off energy. Staff are friendly and the menu... More

We had a delicious breakfast at Cafe Mint yesterday. Limited choices but good food. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Coastal town atmosphere and prices. Would definitely visit again. Highlight would be the thick cut bacon used in the Moby's breakfast. So delicious!

Coffee and cakes were excellent! This cafe is suitable for everyone with tables overlooking the beach in the front and a childproof back yard with play equipment for kids.

Stopped on the way to Port Fairy in a group of 4 on GF public holiday. Find one of many seats and tables either facing the spectacular coast or family feeling beer garden with plenty of facilities for the kids. Menu is reasonable with great selections across that present good value for average plate cost of around $13. Great coffee,... More
