Went in very late afternoon on Good Friday. About 8~10 tables being served with 6 to 7 staff (including kitchen). Unfortunately the service struggles to keep up - not for the lack of trying. It really could do with "bistro-izing" the ordering process - getting the customers to go up to the counter to order and pay. It really looked... More

We came here for lunch with our 2 under two little ones, super quick service, our food came out very quickly which is great when you have two young kids to keep entertained. Service was fantastic by all the staff we had, food was delicious, can't fault anything at all. We would definitely go back for a feed next time... More

I went to Healesville for a morning outing. I had a flat white in a mug and 2 x scones.It cost $12.50. Could have done with more cream and jam as there was really only enough for one scone. I don't expect to lather my scone in cream and jam but I feel there could have been more supplied. So... More

What a joke, terrible service, overpriced. Who was in charge? Waited forever, messed up our order, never received a simple hot chocolate & tea. Cancelled our order & were still overcharged. There was no atmosphere & the radio was on obnoxiously loud. Never again.

First....stay away from the biscuits....they had no flavor and are very tempting with great toppings....should have passed. The steak sandwich was very tough but flavorful thanks to the sauces. I wished I had got something else because I was very disappointed with my food, however the atmosphere and presentation of the food was great, so I'm chalking this miss up... More

The food was just ok, but unfortunately it was the service which really let this place down. I'd finished my breakfast before my partner got hers, after we had to chase them down for it. We also had to go find our own cutlery and napkins. Just basic food, nothing to get too excited about, and the coffee was poor... More

Thought we would try after a long absence, food has taken a bit of a dip. Both dishes were overpowered by sauce. Don't like to can local restaurants but needs to come back to old standards.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch whilst visiting Healesville. A little overpriced for what you got but I had a voucher so not a real concern for me.

Church and Main is a popular cafe in the Main Street of Healesville. The menu is varied, with vegetarian options. Breakfast is available all day. The crunchy chicken burger ($22) is delicious, as are the poached eggs with roasted pumpkin, avocado and feta ($19). Wines are available by the glass. The service is friendly. The decor is a little bland.

Stopped here for lunch because our first choice of place to eat was closed. The place was half empty but it still took 10 minutes to be shown to a table. Our orders were taken promptly but when I questioned what was in a dish on the specials board the waitress shook her head and said she didn't have a... More
