I was definitely not a fan of Scuttlebutts. The new owners have renamed this cafe, The Lost Fawn. We had very good coffee and a delicious veggie panini. Well worth a visit.

After reading all the bad reviews we were nervous about visiting Scuttlebutt Cafe. But with other options limited we bit the bullet. Upon arrival we found out the cafe has changed hands and is now called The Lost Fawn Cafe, which I have reviewed.

Waited 3 minutes at an empty counter before this guy walks out from the back. He doesn't make eye contact with me and it looks like he's going to walk right past me. I'm not even sure at this point if he works there. He...More

On our way down from Spring brook we popped into this busy cafe. However we were not impressed..I'm afraid it all seemed rather disorganised, possibly staff shortages ( it was ANZAC DAY) and a tad tatty. So we just bought some wrapped ice creams from...More

Stopped here for lunch....very disappointed. Over one hour to be served and the quality of the food is terrible. Not fresh at all except for the fries, and a too expensive considering the overall experience. Will not come back.

Had lunch here before going to our accommodation. It was midweek and we were the only customers. Place is quite big so it seemed a little strange. Later a small Japanese tour group dropped in. Food was ok. Serves were large. Service good.
