It was wonderful to walk in and see a beautiful array of prepared food in the cabinet - it was very well presented and not often seen in other cafes we have visited in the area. We chose from the lunch menu, and service... More

This is a great place for Lunch or Breakfast. The view out across Moffat Beach is lovely, and so is the food, especially their wonderful breakfasts. Lunch also is great.

Had breakfast this morning and it was awful. When we arrived, the staff did not smile at us and were not particularly friendly. We ordered our meals and they took 50 minutes to arrive, despite the cafe being not overly busy. None of the staff came to apologise or let us know when our meals were coming, we had to... More

This cafe used to be 'the place to go' at Moffat Beach about 5 years ago. I visited again with a girlfriend on a Wednesday for lunch & immediately wondered why all the cafes beside it were packed out & this one nearly empty. I soon found out why... The meals were quite expensive & when ordering the waitress didn't... More

When at Moffat Beach, this is a place I have visited. On this occasion, the same cheerful helpful staff were present. We were a large table with similar requirements and the food ordered came out fairly quickly. However, contained in my food was a foreign object. Presently, this event has not yet put me off frequenting this place again, in... More

On Friday night I went there for dinner with a friend at 6.40pm. We ordered from a very limited menu but the food was nice. We were not offered dessert or coffee or even warned that the coffee machine was going to be turned off. Another table of diners asked us if we had intended ordering dessert prior to having... More
