Even though the staff were run off their feet they still had the time to exchange small courtesies. The food was its usual standard, excellent, and the coffee was great

Despite being mid-renovation, our party of 7 were made to feel welcome and comfortable in one of the roomy booths. Great space for dining with kids. Food was tasty and staff were helpful but also left us to enjoy our time together.

Very busy with take away customers on a Saturday morning so our coffee’s took a while to come out, but this was the only issue.

In the midst of a makeover/renovation we were sat in the unfinished section but the staff were very helpful, the majority of food ordered was delicious but sadly was disappointed with my Reuben sandwich 😔

Wonderfully attentive staff. Whilst the menu suited most pallets, it had a large emphasis on breakfast items. As we dined at lunch time, we both would have loved some fresh like a salad or fresh sandwich or baguette. We will definitely be back.

I made the booking a week ahead and put down as a special event for my partner's birthday celebration with our dog. When we arrived, we got seated at the very last end of the corner while there were few better available seats without reservation near the door area with proper dog drinking bowl nearby. I understand it was busy weekend morning, however it should have done better for who made the booking a way ahead. It just made us feel like we are not welcome there!

The chicken waffle was disappointed, in terms of the taste and size.

Don't think we will ever go back!

Lorna is an excellent café with great food & amazing chai! Maybe more menu items as the menu is quite small, otherwise perfect :)

Bit pricey for smashed avo on sourdough. Expected pumpkin to be warm - cold. A little underwhelming. And for $21 expected a bit more of a wow. Staff lovely. Seated in adjacent shop.

The food was so good — coffee a little under temp for our liking but well made and delicious. Lovely service. We were seated in the overflow next door which was quiet but lacked a bit of ambience — but didn’t take away from our experience. Thanks Lorna!

Staff were helpful and friendly, meals were delicious and delivered speedily.
It was quiet enough to have a lovely conversation but not too quiet that felt weird.
Parking is always something I’ve thought would be a hassle but having been there 4 or 5 times I’m yet not to get a park out the front.

Staff are friendly, food is tasty and the coffee is excellent. I also love the options of takeaway bakes, pastries and treats and the wide ranging menu. The ambience in the main restaurant is a lot better than in the annexed area, but I do appreciate that there is now a lot more space for diners. Keen to come back again soon!
