Yum

Good food, different and tasteful. Recommend the beef burger with chips and the berry smoothie. Food came quickly and decor was cool. A bit expensive, more as a special treat

We stopped in here for a late breakfast on Australia day. Food is good, and nice coffee, though not too sure about the need to serve it on a wooden chopping board with roasted coffee beans sprinkled around the cup. I'm happy enough to have it simply in the mug and pay a little less.

The coffee, hot chocolate, chocolate milkshakes are all really good. The staff are young, bright and helpful. The cafe has a lovely feel about it with the flowers and homewares. The muffins are also excellent. My only quibble was the bacon and egg roll was too salty, and the eggs were too hard, but other dishes have been okay.

With family visiting from overseas I hate to admit I have been here twice in the last week. My sister who used to live here was asking me to go throughout her 2 week stay and we finally made it the morning she left. I have been again today to celebrate an engagement with some close friends. It is in... More

A great place for family or friends to meet up and sit in nice surroundings (you can even shop while you're there for great homewares) and eat a nicely prepared breakfast. Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

First time for breakfast at this beach side restaurant close to our holiday apartment. A good choice on the menu and also happy to make modifications to suit individual tastes. The outside tables can be hot but there is good shade on the bench seats. We had both breakfast and lunch during our stay but it closes at 4 pm... More

Love the decor and interior design tips that you can get whilst having brunch. The haloumi stack and the corn fritters are so tasty,

It was ok. I had soft shelled crab hamburger which I found didn't work for me. I just ate the crab and some chips. My fried had fish and chips which he enjoyed. I may or may not revisit.

We were lucky enough to spot this lovely cafe from the park by the beach as we participated in "The Bloody long walk" and were feeling somewhat peckish. The eclectic mix of furniture, homewares and flowers gives this large cafe a really homely feel. The menu is somewhat earthy with hand rolled Panini wrapping my Bacon & Egg with Cos... More
