However, just recently, I ate at the cafe and had a lovely dining experience. The staff friendly, the food delicious. I really enjoyed my coffee before later having a delicious mojito with lunch....

This café has to have one of the best possible outlooks in Australia. Looking out across Pumicestone Passage and watching the passing parade is mesmerizing. The lunch menu is great. I can thoroughly recommend the spaghetti with spanner crab and prawns. The wine and beer list is sufficient with a reasonable price range. The service is prompt and the staff... More

Against my usual policy of not going back to a restaurant when away (try other places) We ended up eating here for nearly every meal of the weekend (Breakfast... More

Tried the takeaway fish and chips after the Melbourne cup !!!! Big mistake ... The fish was overcooked .. The calamari was tough and so chewy ... Staff friendly enough , but just not good at all , the location is amazing , staff friendly enough , but if your looking for take away fish and chips look elsewhere ....

Love this restaurant!!!!!! Great location right on Bulcock Beach with a nice selection of both Gluten free and vegetarian dishes. The chunky home style chips are to die for....great selection of cakes and desserts also. Lovely proprietors who enjoy a banter. Top spot
