Arrived early and was greeted with a smile and efficient service, would recommend this place especially for the early starter. Coffee is the best on the road so far.

We’ve having breakfast at Lekker every day we stayed in Ballarat. Appreciate they take the time and trouble to prepare vegan variation breakfast for our family. Will be back next time we visit Ballarat.

The service is amazing, the coffee is good, the food was good, they do kids serve pancakes. Prices are reasonable for this type of cafe. We got parking really close by but it was metered.

Although we have lived in Ballarat for a while, we had not been here before. We came for lunch, and found the food good, and the service both efficient and friendly. Although the cafe was busy, we were served very quickly. Will definitely come again.

Yummy selection of breakfast, coffee, tea and milkshakes as well as a few savory lunch meals makes this a great choice for brunch on the way through Ballarat or when staying around here.

Sorry I don't remember. But I do remember there was a few on the menu. Basically they had quite a mixed menu of food for all. Covered all the bases.
