You might think this little cafe is just a typical cafe found at a park, pumping out warmed over pub food. You would be wrong. I ordered the Veggie Wrap and it was as good a Veggie meal you can find anywhere on the island. It was chock full of fresh veggies with a tasty Hummus spread that made it... More

This is a beachside spot with basic but good food. There is nothing else, so pay and enjoy. The cheeseburger was perfectly wonderful and set us up for the afternoon. So have lunch, walk across the ford to the beach, walk to the far end, see the wildlife, birds, turtles and dolphins and relax.

Enjoyed a nice quick lunch at the cafe before crossing the lagoon to get on the beach! Well worth the visit! The cafe had many items to choose from and it is well maintained.

The kids and I loved it whilst the wife stayed hidden from the sun under the shade on the beach!! After a day at Tigertail beach it is a god send. Just set back between the beach and the car park, A family friendly oasis and shelter from the hot august sun

We went to Tigertail beach early and by lunchtime the children were really hungry. We stopped at the cafe conveniently located at the top of the beach and had burgers and chicken. The burgers were really well cooked, with fresh salad and were just what we needed. The lady who worked in the cafe was really friendly and helpful and... More

Nice beachside cafe although it could do with a bit of TLC, our plastic table was broken. I thought that the prices were OK although yo will have had to pay $8 parking for all day but I think that you can get a two hour spot. The food was freshly cooked and the service friendly

Good quality food and large portions. They garciously filled our water bottles with ice water at no charge. Ice cream for the kids and adults from a cooler. Then a great chicken finger basket with waffle friea for our son. An awesome veggie wrap and yummy kettle chips for me! Loved it.

I was really surprised about this place, it's way better than just a beachside stand. My husband enjoyed his burger, and I got the fried grouper. Perfect spot for lunch during a beach day adventure.
