In an unfortunate coincidence, Aberfeldie coffee shop Calmer Café & Bar has found itself battered by VCE students after the business appeared in an exam.
To make things even more confusing, the café’s manager last name is Jenkins, which is the same last name of the fictional character which appeared in the exam question. It’s been a shock to the local business who’s Google review rating dropped from a 5 to a 3.5 overnight.
If you’re around Aberfeldie, ignore the reviews – this is one GREAT coffee spot! Styling themselves as a ‘retro’ destination, you can grab your breakfast favourites like avocado on toast and granola (that’s gluten free!).
For social occasions, you can grab boards full of cheese, meats and dips, and they’ve got a pretty extensive alcohol menu to keep you quenched at night.
Even the kids love the doughnuts!
Oh, and they also support local music! Check out this recent video…
And local gamers!
Ignore the scathing reviews – there is good coffee and wine to be had!
