  • What our Customers Say

    The food and service is fantastic

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    OMG! The food and service is fantastic! Make sure you turn up hungry......freshly made AMAZING quiches (my fave....chicken, leek and mushroom), beautiful homemade pies......and the cakes.......beautiful. One of the best cafes in Victoria (and I'm a cafe snob!).

    Best Pancakes EVER

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Thought I would try the newly managed Red Relish Cafe for lunch on the long weekend. My daughter (2) was made to feel welcome with a children's menu and baby cino. The staff were attentive and friendly, the Canadian pancakes delicious and the best coffee!

    Highly recommended.

    A gem of a cafe, terrific food

    Great little cafe with all home cooked food. Servings are generous and tasty. We've now had several meals (mostly lunches) there and we really like it. My partner is vegan and it is no trouble for them to alter their dishes to accommodate her needs.

    a fantastic cafe

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    With delicious homemade food; warm and friendly welcomes with smiles; brightly coloured interior and art work creating a sense of fun, this is a fantastic cafe in the heart of Yarra Junction - a must try that will not leave you disappointed.

    Surprisingly Excellent

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Best pancakes I’ve had in years. Bacon and eggs perfect. Not your typical trendy cafe with all glitz and no quality. What they lack in glamour is more than covered by the quality of the food and cakes.

    Food was delicious!!​

    I went to Red Relish today with my 2 hungry kids. I found Sue and her staff extremely accommodating for my needs as a mum with 2 restless kids and they really gave the extra touches. We will be back!

    Divine !
