Delicious and large portions. I had the chorizo scramble served with corn tortillas _ so good I barely touched the hash browns. Husband had delicious pancakes. Fast service too - didn't wait at all 9 am on Saturday morning

Happening cafe with really good food. Popular with the locals. There is a surfing theme to the decor. The cafe is clean and attractive. A very busy place.

Enjoyed this place for breakfast. Large portions and so yummy. Omelet was great and hash browns were the best. My friend had a croissant breakfast sandwich which she said was great as well. Close to shops to walk it all off!

This is a great place for brunch. Be prepared to wait for awhile, but it is worth the wait. The food and coffee drinks are among the bet in town. The food has a french flair and always delicious.

Reasonably priced, good food. Close to down town and shopping. Walk to pier is possible but would be long and steep coming back up the hill. Good service.
