Bruce's Café is located in East Wynyard on the Old Bass Highway. The building has been through many incarnations over the years and it's current life as Bruce's is possibly its pinnacle. The Café has a good range of food options for the hungry traveller or the local wanting to have some time out over a great coffee. The food is of good quality including the cakes and slices that will tempt your taste buds. Where it excels however is in the service. The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. They mix well with the clientele and make this dining experience something special. The location is pretty easy on the eye as well looking out across Bass Strait. They do a great breakfast and lunch. Do yourself a favour and try Bruce's.

This is a small cafe next to a caravan park on the Old Bass Highway. If you want to definitely get in for breakfast here it would be a good idea to book. Not that we did, and not that others did. But I did notice that two tables had “Reserved” signs on them, and it isn’t often you see this - people booking tables for breakfast. Why? Because the food and coffee are excellent. The coffee was perfect: strong and not overheated. We both ordered the Potato Stack, with good old-fashioned grated potato fritters, two perfectly cooked poached eggs (a rarity in my opinion), smashed avocado and lots of bacon, with perfect hollandaise sauce. Yummmmm! What else can I say: the service was also outstanding. The day before we had called in hoping for some take-away food, but it was after 3 pm and the kitchen was shut for the day. However the girl serving couldn’t have been more helpful and we ended up taking away a warmed savoury muffin, which had been cooked on the premises, which she spread sumptuously with butter. It was great. I can’t recommend this little place enough!

Good Melbourne style coffee. Good food at Melbourne prices. Often busy particularly on Sundays. GF options available. Coconut panacotta with berries granola and fairy floss very pretty. Poached eggs perfect. Range of smoothies available.

Plenty of atmosphere in this small but trendy cafe. Delicious meals.
Can recommend the chicken tacos, the superbowl salad and the burger.
Friendly service. Reasonable prices.

Great food and coffee to be enjoyed with a sea view. We had a large group so we expected a long wait.
