Great Cafe, great staff, yum bites. Best sandwiches in Sorrento, small salads, mini quiches & soup. Sit in the sun with a mini spinach quiche & relax its worth it!

Stringers is an unassuming delightful cafe.The outside seating is often in the sun with views of the bay.The coffee is great and the bacon & egg muffins are fabulous. The staff are very helpful & friendly.

It has a great location at the top of the hill looking north over the bay and has outdoor tables to take advantage of the view. This is a combination old style grocery store and café and although it has lots a little of its old fashioned character it is worth a visit for a cup of coffee etc.

We only had a coffee and a ham tomato cheese toasted roll so it's a bit hard to give good or bad reviews on such an easy order, but it was nice, the staff friendly and the price pretty good (much better than the vanilla slice joint across the road). was bloody nice sitting outside in the morning sun on...

We stumbled across Stringers Cafe after our walk to Point Napeon. Cute cafe, nice friendly staff. Lovely chai latte, hot chocs and carrot cake. Great spot!

Stringers is ideally situated on the corner of Sorrento's Main Street - where you will get a glimpse of the ocean. The coffee is wonderful - and our toasted panninis were delicious! We found the service very pleasant - can only assume some TripAdvisor reviewers arrived at a very busy time, as this place is very popular!

Stringers is one of those places with a reputation as a must visit. If you are in Sorrento you must visit Stringers and at least have a cup of coffee. On a sunny autumn morning it is really good to sit outside with a mug of coffee, watch the world go by and look out over the picturesque Sorrento/Port Phillip... More
