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

This place gets busy as folks take their laptops to check back in with the world on the internet.

No matter what time we rode past the Coral Cafe at the Museum there was always a reason to stop. The iced coffees were cooling, the chocolate milkshakes a favourite and the chocolate thick shakes a new and surprising yummy discovery. The breakfast menu was always hard to choose from because of the huge variety of items and the lunch... More

I had dinner one night a the Cafe- the food was good, and the service was great. We had fresh local fish and local beef - very good quality. I'd be happy to go back if I'm on the island again.

Went here for lunch after a long bike ride. Found the menu very limiting - i was hankering for some hot chips. Attached to the museum.

We booked to go for dinner on the "Roast Night". Glad we did, as we could smell the roast pork cooking as we rode by on our pushbikes! We had a lovely meal, very friendly service, with a great atmosphere. We ate on the covered deck at the front of the museum.

After visiting the museum you can sit inside or outside on the covered deck and enjoy a light sandwich with a milkshake as I did or settle in for a more substantial meal with tea and coffee. The atmosphere here is peaceful and the food is delicious. We went there most days for lunch.
