Airport coffee is always a bit hit or miss, The Fly is ok, coffee was drinkable at least. Hate it that they make you put your own sugar in though, it's not that I'm lazy the sugar just mixes in better when the barista does it.

No pleasant surprises here at The Fly in the Melbourne airpoort. The food in the glass counter would be the entirety of your choices: sandwiches, pizza slices, meat pies and rolls, and some pastries. Limited beer menu unless you like light-colored, mostly tasteless beers (one or two exceptions). Thry should send someone out from behind the counter once ina while... More

One toasted, tasty pastrami on turkish bread. One quite tasty mushroom and gruyere cheese pie that required second heating even after a request for "very hot". One glass red wine and one cider. Not bad compared to most airport food. Tables needed a wipe. Paper bags available for taking meal on-board. Would eat here again if flights were delayed. Bill... More

I was very disappointed by this "cafe" I was looking for a sandwich while waiting for my plane and stumbled upon this cafe it looked nice from the out side with a few things in a glass case but that was it. They had quite a few pre-pack sandwiches weren't that good at all, though I had a chocolate muffin... More

Nice quick service. Disapointed that at 1101am they wouldnt do the breakfast menu. It closes at 11am. Light meal option was ok. I chose a quiche which was hot and tasty but thought it would come with more than a few bits of endive for decoration. Coffee was weak and definatly not hot.

Pleasant enough staff, the food (pre packed egg sandwiches) bland and tasteless but a hole filler while I was waiting for my flight. That's what you expect at airport cafes: overpriced and bland food. Good biews of the airport activity. Better than some others at the airport.

This place should simply be shut down by health authorities. Staff - too busy talking to each other, laughing and discussing weekend plans. Not even a hello to any of the customers. Drinks fridge - out of order, all drinks sitting in it are warm. Food - cold yes soggy and overpriced. Hygiene - Staff member brings rubbish bin into... More

Staff lacked enthusiasm, poor service with stale/old food along with below average coffee, overall wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Small seat yourself cafe and bar in terminal 3 near gate 6 offering sandwiches and coffees. It looked like the bar was limited to what it offered. We had a grilled cheese with tomato and ham and a vanilla latte both good. The ladies working there were very nice and efficient. Good for a quick bite or drink while waiting... More

We've stopped by here before. The food is delicious, quick, and very tasty. The staff are very friendly, and efficient. We grabbed pizza for the kids, and coffee. Highly recommend.
