The food is always great with great portions and good prices. The atmosphere is great and the set up of tables in and around the garden is great. Overall always a great experience. Would recommend.

Friendly staff and attentive. The food has some room for improvement: brekkie burger had a small smear of avocado
Fritters needed a sauce for more flavour
Salmon bruschetta would’ve been better with two pieces of toast instead of one

Spacious area and nice and cosy out of the rain!

I won’t go back as I could not pay for my meal individually. I had to pay half the bill which I’m not happy about. You expect people to pay by credit card these days yet you don’t give them the option for for what they order. We are all dealing with reduced income and trying to support local businesses.

We really enjoyed Mercetta. The food was delicious and well priced. Presentation was good also. Staff friendly, except for when I was standing at the front door, I was standing a little too long before being acknowledged. All in all very good and will recommend
Thanks

I ordered the Buddha bowl and it looked as disappointing as it tasted. I also had the cold brew and the coffee tasted burnt and ashy. Won’t be returning.

Make sure you request where you want to sit - we were put on a bench and had to ask to move to a table, which then stuffed up the wait staff and we got a little forgotten about.
Food good
Very noisy at the front

Booked indoor specifically, was seated outside with no cover at our table. When we mentioned this to the waiter we were told sorry if you want to sit inside you'll need to wait again. Why offer the option to select inside or outside. Coffee was good, food was bland, the avo on my smashed avo looked like it had come straight from a black Swan guac container, my partner had the bhudda bowl and that too lacked a strong flavour. Staff were friendly despite being rushed, will still come back as we've had great experiences in the past.

Best coffee in town! Fairly quiet but service so slow that I ended up going to the front counter to order. Avo smash a total rip off $17.50 for a piece of toast with the avocado, a tiny square of fetta and one tiny slice of chilli. Regulars that were very disappointed!

The food was great and so was the staff. We booked a table online and they sat us outside. It was was very cold. They never told us we would be seated outside on our booking. But would definitely go back for the food.

I had the chicken burger while my wife had pancakes. We really loved our food except she’s have ordered ice cream instead of the cheese. It was nice setting outside at the back and food didn’t take long. Would love to go back again for that chicken burger

In this current Covid climate, it seemed nothing was a usual at Mercetta (but it never is). The table was set and ready, all social distancing complied with. The staff were magnificent and the food - well it never ever disappoints.

Always a wonderful place to sit, mingle, catch up with friends & family & of course eat.

Great food, great staff, lovely ambiance. Could be slightly better value for money but with a location on the main drag of Mornington you can’t get much better!

When you book a table on here you would think you would get a good table
When we got there the waitress said she had given our table away and we had to sit near the counter next to the open door
When we sat dow menus were brought to us .. 23 minutes later we still had no water or beverages We had to get the waiter to comment over to take our order
The food was good although very over priced
I ordered The Signature Hot Chocolate which was warm NOT
Disappointing experience..not rushing back

Really enjoyed the food and coffee here overall. Food came out promptly. I just wish they took the covid regulations a bit more seriously. We were not asked to provide our contact details by staff, nor did we see others asked. I don't think you can just hope that customers take the initiative themselves. I didn't feel like the high-chair (or tables) had been sanitised.
