Great breakfast sandwich and great views!

It was lovely to sit in the little deli and look put over the water. We went to breakfast very early and this seemed to be the only,ave open. We had a breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon and tomato and could have just sat there for hours. Great food and a beautiful setting

We (four of us including an eight year old) opted for lunch here because of the interesting and reasonably priced menu. We were not disappointed, and as a bonus had a lovely conversation with the staff as well. I went back to write down the name so that I could review it accurately because we were all impressed by both... More

I had breakfast here on a sunny but cool Friday morning. The scones and tea were nice, but I would say the cafe was a bit cramped and crowded. I sat outside, to enjoy the view of the bay, and it was worth it. Everyone was very polite and friendly and it was a good start to the day.

I had somekind of salmon sandwich and it was the best sandwich I've ever had. We also order chocolate pastry and had it heated. That was good also.

Such a pity that the management staff have no customer service, twice I've been in and each time I feel like a school girl being repremanded by the headmistress. This staff member was almost rude in her manner, won't be coming again .

This is a very appealing little space and overall breakfast was OK but not great. We shared a lovely fresh fruit and yogurt - very generous size. The croque Madame was disappointing as the poached egg was microwaved and dry. The cheese was a bit overpowering and ham so so. Served on Brioche was not to my liking. So the... More

Open at 8am, this was the perfect place for a lovely 'Parisienne Breakfast' , sitting outside watching the harbour wake up and the world go by. Excellent quality and variety of pastries, breads and fruit made for a delicious breakfast, enough to share. This tiny cafe and deli also does lovely sandwiches, pies and cakes! Try it, you won't be... More

Two large takeways cappucinoes came in at almost $12. They were very nice though, and they did have a nice little "complimentary" biscuit on top.
