1extrashotplease - Thanks for the update. Now I am glad I have not given them another chance since my last appalling experience some years ago. There are always new cafe's opening and closing in Ballarat - all of which are better than this one. I cannot believe it is still in business
Came back after a few years from when I left a scathing review from my last visit. Needless to say, nothing has changed and I hope people read this and stay away from this absolute nightmare of a cafe. Unless you want to be served by rude abnoxious staff serving up what can only be described as warmed up lake water, go a few meters down the road to 'The Lake View'.
Racers has the WORST coffee I have ever tasted. Without a doubt. Totally undrinkable. The staff there are very poor in customer service and took their time. Food was very average. Atmosphere - non existent. Lucky for the great location. Racers is an absolute disgrace and poor excuse of a cafe. I am disgusted.
WORST coffee ever. Inefficient and very slow service; was 20secs from leaving establishment without ordering - 20mins before order taken and place was not that busy. Pizza ordered was horrible. Poorly executed attempt at gourmet and waitress provided me with incorrect details of ingredients compared to what arrived. Who wants fat chips of potato on a pizza??? Prices out of keeping with both service and quality - grossly overpriced. Took ages to make take away coffee at end of meal - had to be take away due to delays with service. Tipped coffee into gutter after first sip. REALLY REALLY bad. Ballarat has much, much, better coffee elsewhere. This place is coasting on it's location opposite the lake. Dreadful.
