    What a find this was! Wow! The best view in Brisbane with an exceptional cafe. Great food, super friendly and helpful staff - and the coffee is really good too. Highly recommend this cafe to all. Booking is a must as Lovewell is very popular. Booking system is easy. I'll definitely be returning to Lovewell. Thank you.

    Have been previously, and the scenery is worth the drive.Yesterday was a very good friends60 th birthday.A very important day and we were enjoying the time when told our time was up and we needed to go.Very disappointing.One friend had to ask for a cup to take her unfinished coffee with her.I found this embarrassing. Your staff were amazing, so helpful.I would tell a friend about love well but also about the time limit, it makes a difference when you only go out for special occasions due to budget, and then have to leave before you wish.

    Food quality is very good, and Coffee excellent, but I’m not a fan of your new All Day Brunch Menu. Its ok for Breakfast (although I wish you’d kept the Bacon and Cheese Waffle I used to get there last year), but not too many choices for lunch. I ended up choosing the Toasted Panini from the Counter. I’m sure there’s a very good reason for the limited Menu, so I’ll just have to come for Breakfasts or Morning Teas in future. The Staff are wonderful and of course the views are the best. Keep up the good work and if you could see your way clear to adding that Waffle to the menu, I’d be very grateful. 😊😊

    Not alot of parking. Took time to be greeted at the door as very busy, however the food and coffee and warmth from a cold winters morning made up for it. Very clean premises and best dirty chai latte I've had in a long time.

    Beautiful location - no argument here, food was average for the price. We had to wrestle the booked table away and was a squeeze for our party. Food was fast to arrive, drinks less so; interesting temperature of the foods showed eggs were cooked, hollandaise sauce was straight from the fridge without heat. Sometimes the restaurants get overloaded and this is completely understood. We didn't get a chance to provide feedback at the restaurant unfortunately - hopefully this gets some view here. Would we go back - definitely!

    The good: The food was good and quickly served. The view is amazing. Could be improved: We made a booking for an inside table and dressed for it on a cold morning. The seating person had several large tables inside, but forced us to sit outside or wait for someone to finish. We were offered blankets... that had not been sanitized or even folded, after use by the last customer. We chose to be cold instead. The coffee service appeared to prioritize the walk-up customers - we were done with our meal, dishes cleared, before we got our coffee. They're supporting (and hiring) vulnerable women and I'm inclined to cut them some slack... but the faults here should be addressed by management,

    Great location. We were 4. Table wasn’t ready, then when ready, it was dirty. One coffee was served, then 2 meals. 10mins later, 1 more meal was served. 10mins later, 2 teas were served followed by the 4th meal 5mins after. Had to ask 3 times for the last coffee. Last coffee turned up an hour after ordering and when we finished our meals. Very friendly staff, but very poor organisation. We were told that no manager was present to ask for an explanation. Burger was terrible/expensive and scones were not heated/fresh. This location unfortunately refuses cash payment.

    The dog-friendly area is outside of the cafe, which allows takeaway foods only, we would appreciate if this information was provided somewhere before we make a booking, as we would have opted for other restaurants. It was very windy outside the cafe and there's constantly leaves and small branches from the tree dropping down on us and our foods. We paid $22 for cheese burger and chips, that was almost the same size as the $5 dollar cheeseburger from Maccas. We asked for full cream milk to come with the Earl Grey tea, but we didn't get the milk. Overall, it was way too expensive for the food and environment we received, and on top of that, they seemed to be understaffed. The staff members were really busy and seemed a bit frustrated.

    We didn’t get the table type I’d booked ahead of time. When ordering some scones, we were asked if we would like Cream or butter. We asked for cream to get butter when food was brought out and informed they don’t have any cream. Very odd to offer scones with jam and cream to not have any cream.

    Although the eggs on the benedict were hard boiled and the sauce was a bit sparse the bacon was excellent However we booked in advance but were not informed that it would only be takeaway due to staff shortages. At first we were told we would have to grab a table on the balcony even though we booked inside but then they moved a few things around and accommodated us inside. Great service! They also allowed us proper cutlery after the wooden fork snapped and the knife would not cut the Turkish bread. Eating eggs benny out of a cardboard box was not a good experience and I had to peel soggy cardboard from my fork on a couple of occasions. All this would have been avoided if bookings had been taken into account and we had been informed ahead of time because we would have cancelled and gone elsewhere. Unfortunate. Having said that they dealt with us with the usual grace and I would still recommend them to others.

    It was a little disconcerting that I had made the booking but when we arrived they knew nothing about our booking at all and our food was served as take away - we could have ordered that from outside - it was not what we had planned at all. Very disappointed really. Why bother to book when treated this way.

    45 minutes waiting for my breakfast (salmon egg benedict). My two friends had already eaten theirs by the time I eventually asked a waitress where mine was. I was told my order had been lost. Asked again another 10 mins later to be told "the chef isn't listening to me requesting that your order is prioritised". I asked for a refund which hasn't cleared into my bank. Very disappointing & unprofessional indeed.
