Excellent food, good value

We enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners (and coffee) here during our ten day stay. There is a good range of choices which seem to change regularly. Prices and value compare well with other places on the island. Sitting on the verandah is a great spot to while away time and relax.

Be sure to check the opening times of the Cafe before you turn up, it's often open with the Museum, but sometimes it's not! We ate there on the 'Roast' evening, perfectly pleasant, nothing stand out but certainly value for money if rather basic. Good for coffee and cake during the day.

Had various meals here - lunch and morning tea mostly. Coffee was made well and has nice flavor. Sandwiches for lunch and bacon and egg rolls very tasty. A chill out place for locals and visitors

Really enjoyed a quick lunch at the Coral Café and whilst waiting had a walk around the Musuem. I recommend this to any visitor to Lord Howe Island.

Located right in the middle of all the rides and walks, this is a great place to stop and have a bite to eat. They serve good food and wine at reasonable prices and you can either sit on the deck or inside - both are really nice.

Great spot for a meal or coffee. The museum is small but interesting and has some nice souvenirs. Paid access to wifi available. Went back again and again. Nice relaxed spot.

We went for lunch here a couple of days. The Iced Chocolates and Milkshakes were yummy. Same can be said about the Salad Sandwiches and Chocolate Brownies. Great for a light meal!
