Good coffee

Staff were friendly but a little slow to take our orders. The food was good value and tasty. The coffee was also a big hit with our group

We had a nice lunch there today. Food was great albeit a little pricey for what you get. My only issue is the outdoor dining is on quite a slope and consequently the tables aren't level or stable so we were constantly worried about drinks spilling etc. Probably difficult for the cafe to fix.

Fabulous! The kids had the best chips they've eaten since we've been here and we had the Mediterranean open sandwich. Yum!! A nice setting and well priced. A quick place to stop but yummy and fresh 😉

The service was fairly slow for a not too busy cafe. The menu has a good variety and pricing is reasonable. Our food took awhile to come out when it did arrive it was a nice portion size. Eggs were cooked well, bread was nice however the hollandaise sauce had zero flavour, very disappointing. Overall it was ok not amazing.

TA led me to this little corner café in Port. We were looking for a salad, but it is clear that not all smaller eating places offer them. This one did have 3, but we both chose the Chicken & Avocado. Very good, very fresh with a nice vinaigrette dressing. Not the most generously sized salad I've had. Friendly service.

Had an excellent breakfast here and service with a smile. The food was great with good portion size and also value for money. My only gripe is that the food took a while to arrive. I wouldn't want to be in a hurry, so allow plenty of time, it is worth it.

The service was a bit slow but the food more than made up for it. This fresh and flavorful breakfast was one of the best i've had in a long time.The prices were excellent and very affordable for any budget.

The service here is good and the coffee is also good. We both ordered the Green egg omelette on the specials board. The breakfast was good but not amazing and was a little to salty for my taste. The toast was great and all in all i was pleased but not wowed. We sat on the sidewalk and people watched... More

What a great start to the day. Lots of choice - I wish I had the appetite and time to try more. We sat on the side-walk and watched the world go by.

Great place to drop in for a delicious, quick and well priced breakfast. I don't know what type of bread the toast was but it was the best toast I've ever tasted!
