Yummo gluten free ham and cheese toasted sandwich with great coffee was an easy lunch option. The perfect way to finish a trip to the museum, especially on a rainy day.

A good choice for lunches and part of an excellent museum which is a "must-see" attraction on Lord Howe Island, with its historic, geological and marine biological displays.

We decided to have lunch with our 90 year old aunt & 83 year old mother. Nothing was a issue for the staff. My aunt & mother wanted a light snack, not being on the menu, they still made it for them. Our Burger & salmon foccacia was excellent, that good in fact we return. When people ask is it... More

We had dinner, lunch and brunch here and we're never disappointed. They have an Asian night which we missed but heard how good it is from several people so if you get the opportunity to go don't miss out. Reasonably priced main meals but thought the desserts were a "bit over the top" for what they were. Very nice staff..........as... More

We had lunch at the Coral Café as part of our package deal to Lord Howe Island. The voucher included focaccia or sandwich and coffee for two. Amazing food, coffee and service and very relaxing on the deck. We would recommend having a meal there when visiting Lord Howe Island. Thank you

Have dinner and lunch here. Food are good and relaxing environment. I think it is relaxing anywhere in Lord Howe anyway. It is expensive consider it is just a cafe, but consider everything here have to fly in from mainland, it is probably not too bad.

We had breakfast here a few times during our stay on LHI. It was close to our accommodation and offered a range of breakfast options. The coffee was good too. The cooking is homestyle and simple, but well prepared and tasty. Tomato sauce with the BLT was a surprise, I expected aioli or mayo - but maybe that's me. The... More
