We found this little gem of a cafe as my husband and I took a stroll in town one evening. We looked into the cake and dessert display and just had to try!! We discovered they tasted as good as they looked. All home made!! We've been back a few times for meals or cake and coffee and have never... More

We stopped rather late but nevertheless we were welcomed with a beautful smile. ..we ordered fresh juice that tantalised our taste buds before starting with the cheesy herb bread...mmmmm. Moving on...we ordered our mains that were also good. The coffee (my partner assures me) was exceptionally good. All in all...this place has good value. ..with good meals...AND friendly service!

Just finished my Mega Burger ($9.90 AUD), and I have to say it is simply amazing. It comes accompanied with fries. The meat was juicy and thick, on a super beautiful and soft brioche bun. They put the cheese on the bottom and it was melted beautifully. Beetroot, pickle, lettuce, them the meat patty, topped with tomato and grilled onions... More

You could drive to the marina and pay more with a better view but I doubt you would leave as satisfied as having breakfast here.the servings were very generous for the price and the quality was outstanding. The wife had eggs Benedict with smoked salmon while I had the bacon and egg roll. Both were absolutely superb. Our only disappointment... More

I've been to Hides a few times now. Everytime I go there I order something new and it's always fantastic and faultless. Most noteworthy detail for me is that I'm a total coffee snob and I can say, the coffee here, is great!
