Excellent value and quality

The best coffee in Bowen, the best views of any restaurant just about anywhere - overlooking the boat harbour - and the food is always fresh and light with plenty of options for different dietary needs. Lovely decor all round pleasant way to spend the morning having brunch with friends

Decided to try this place for a Sunday lunch whilst passing through Bowen. Once found (it’s located at the Yacht Club) with a carpark full of cars was a good sign. The menu had an extensive range of options and I found the service was attentive and helpful. View over the marina and water are pretty and the tables around... More

My partner and I always come here and have always had great food for a good price, always friendly and great atmosphere. Child friendly, my little one is always treated with colouring in and the meals for children are generous followed by a ice cream sundae. Be sure to stop by and also try the Belgium waffles too :)
