We had a ham and pineapple and a tandoori chicken wood fire pizza. These were fantastic. The service was good and we went back for breakfast the next day. Breakfast was lovely not as good as the pizza but still good food, service and atmosphere.

This cafe is an absolute gem for an informal meal, especially with children. The food is excellent, the friendly, casual ambiance is delightful and the location overlooking ocean is a great bonus. Oh, and did I mention it's great value!

The cakes and slices here are divine - a little dearer but quality so worth every cent. Coffee is great - view is amazing - ocean blue and clouds - perfect!

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
