Wonderful laid back cafe with good food. We went for lunch which was great, and friends went for dinner and found it really good.

don't miss this one, it is so much fun! and there is some wonderful food to be tasted and enjoyed, the chef/proprieter is a superb cook, imaginative and very skilful. We had a superb meal, despite a power failure, and would warmly recommend this to anyone who can get to Cooks Bay. At the end of the meal, the proprietor,... More

I dined here about 4 years ago and was pleasantly surprised to see it was still open. Our dinner was spectacular in every way - seafood platter for two was a great taster, fresh fish of day was gurnard in macadamia crust, which was stunning, sauce a little too much in quantity, salad greens fresh from garden and lightly dressed...

Four of us visited here for breakfast...Owner (Dave) was awesome, making us feel welcome, giving us cheek and cooking us a fabulous breakfast. If you are seeking a fabulous atmosphere which is a bit different from the ordinary....make sure you visit here.....Can't wait to have dinner here one night when Dave starts singing !!

Great organic coffee and selection of organic foods. Lovely garden to sit out in the sun or shade and eat in with arts for sale.

We had afternoon tea at this cafe. There was not a lot left to choose from, but at 2.30 in the afternoon this is to be expected. I had a lovely muffin, and my friend had a really yummy piece of Baileys cheesecake. The garden setting amongst the mature tress is so nice on a really hot afternoon.

Judging by the price tag and the menu contents I was expecting an amazing meal. I was wrong... While the starter was lovely (couldn't fault it great mesh of flavours) the main was terrible. We had the scotch fillet - the meat was undercooked & there was no searing on the steak, the flavours didn't mesh well & the accompaniments... More
