“Want great Bonsoy soy milk coffee in Kilmore?”
Review of Kilmore Gaol Cafe

Kilmore Gaol Cafe
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Kilmore
Price range: US$1 - US$18
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 September 2018 via mobile

The coffee in Kilmore is poor or average at most until today. Enjoying a Bonsoy (by far the best soy milk) Flat White out under the awning overlooking the sunny court yard. It is excellent in taste, texture and heat in a mug! The new owners have taken over 5 weeks ago and have introduced a full cafe menu with onsite made deserts and cakes. I’m only having a coffee this time. All the food looks the part and good looking salads. Me being 90% plant based limits my menu choices somewhat. I’d expect I can get what I want in a nutrition laden lunch next time I visit!
Congratulations on giving Kilmore a real Melbourne style cafe.
Thanks
David

Fabulous coffee and scones and the opportunity to wander around the old goal, wish we’d known we were able to enjoy lunch there too as the serves were generous and looked delicious.

I've been to the gaol a few times now and it's quite a unique place. Being the old gaol, there is heaps of history and the pictures around the walls depict some of this. The food is nice, the service always friendly but I think the mugs at $5.50 just a bit much. Having said that, the coffee is just right and you always get what is ordered. Love the scones, jam & cream which is good value.

Hi Kay, we are the new owners who took over in late July and would love for you to come back and try out our new menu. We will be ramping up the history side of things too and are looking to reopen the gift shop and open up the old solitary confinement cell for customers to view. In addition to our new and more extensive menu, we have reduced the prices of our coffee - still the same coffee and still the same excellent quality - just brought the prices more in line with were we think they should be. So now a cup is $3.90 and a mug is $4.60 look forward to seeing you - regards, Melanie

Food was nice, Coffee at $5.50 a mug is a bit much though. Being an old gaol, the surroundings make for a very interesting place.
