We had a breakfast there and it was all good quality and value for money. Try the fresh juices. Would definitely go back.

After a morning at the beach, we crossed the street for the best burgers in town. Absolutely delicious: juicy and tasty. The buns were fresh, the meat was well seasoned and the chips crispy. The prices ranged from $8 for a hamburger to $15-ish for the steak burger with chips an additional $2. They have a wide range of drinks... More

We had breakfast here and a lunch as well. Home cooked breakfasts was enjoyable and the homemade sandwiches were beautiful and fresh. Great views from the tables and friendly service.

Good coffee and service. The breakfasts were good quality and reasonably priced. Situated on the corner of Mowbray and The Esplanade at Beaches Resort, it was very convenient for us as we stayed in apartment "306 On The Beach".

Best place for breakfast, after a walk along the beach there's nothing nicer than pancakes and coffee at the beach. If you are on a budget its one of the cheapest places for lunch. Thoroughly recommend it.

Another great wee place for brekkie in PD. Lovely view. Multiple sized brekkies and split the pancakes for the kids. No EFTPOS but Cash is King! $52.30 for brekkie, $50 will do, ta thank you. Come again. I will.

Wouldn't visit again as coffee awful. Much better to walk another 50 metres to Hi Tide. Very disappointed as very handy to our apartment .

Five star location. Two star furniture. Mostly four star food and good service. Kind of a beach kiosk where you can get meals and particularly good breakfast including fresh juices Could have crept into four star however they don't take credit cards which is completely unacceptable in a resort town.
