Exceptional food and service and a great location. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Open for breakfast at 9.00am and for lunch, afternoon eats. Normally closes about 5.00pm. Just opposite the foreshore.

Lovely outlook overlooking the beach, great food and coffee. The staff were attentive and friendly. Lots of interesting things on the menu as well as expected regular favourites.

We had breakfast two mornings in a row at Forage. The service was great, the menu was really nice and the food was fabulous. I had the best Chai Latte I’ve had in a long time at Forage and I highly recommend the French toast...with bacon, caramelised bananas and walnuts. The fire added to the lovely ambiance and make sure you don’t leave without buying some homemad3 gnocchi which is beautiful.More

I enjoy going to Forage as I get options that don’t appear in other cafes along our part of the Great Ocean Road. My recent meal was a risotto with rock lobster, the local delicacy. Morsels of lobster legs throughout the risotto. Warragul greens too,...to add to the indigenous touch. My wife opted for the ocean trout open sandwich with salad. A previous lunch at Forage was an abalone salad. Certainly out of the ordinary. A great coffee before and after the meal for both of us.More

Forage on the Forsehore is a little quaint place on the beach in sleepy Port Campbell township. We only had coffee and tea there, but these were great, while gazing out on the beach. The Chai Tea came in a pot with chai tea leaves...(not the powder that most other places do) - it had a wholesome flavour to enjoy. It was easy to relax in this quiet little cafe.More

We went here for a late breakfast twice on our 3 day stay in Port Campbell. The coffee was the best I’ve had in a while and the bacon 🥓 OMG yum.

Had the house made gnocchi for lunch and it was one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten. Nice views of the ocean sitting outside.

We enjoyed a gluten free lunch outside on the foreshore. The smashed avocado and toasted sandwich with local produce were delicious and the service was friendly and quick. They had outside tables with umbrellas as well as other seating inside and undercover out front. A...beautiful spot for lunch to relax and unwind.More

Smashed avo breakfast with a poached egg added, really loved the uniqueness and flavour feta puree. One of the best pan fried gnocci ive tried, not to oily or dry and the pumpkin is just right! Would recommend stopping by.
