We ordered takeaway at 1:05 - two chicken burgers, one fish burger, medium chips and cans of soft drinks. At 1:25 they called out our number and we got excited. Alas, the young girl just told us that they had no more chicken and could we choose something else for $8.50 - the price of a chickenburger. I chose another... More

Young inexperienced waiters, but still they didn't try too hard. Dirty tables, directed to pick up menus off the floor, didn't wait too long but our 2 meals came 15 minutes apart. Nothing complex, just fish and chips and chicken salad. Clearly inexperienced in the kitchen, food was pretty ordinary, nothing home made. Very ordinary experience...then, while not finished our...

Went here last week. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The location is the perfect spot to have breakfast on a summer morning. I had a toasted sandwhich and I am super fussy as I have allergies and the staff went far and beyond for me. Great little local cafe in relaxed atmosphere. Cant dine in a better spot... More

Living in Terrigal we have tried out this cafe a few times. Firstly, it is the best location on the Central Coast of any cafe. Secondly, the young waitresses are pleasant and do their best to serve the cutomer. Unfortunately the "good news" stops there as the management of the kitchen has to be the worst on the Central Coast... More

Do not go to this cafe / restaurant. The service is unbelievably bad. Staff are inexperience and untrained. Owner is rude and unapologetic for the bad service and atrocious meals. What a horrendous experience at such a potentially great restaurant in a perfect location. 1. No menus given to our table 2. Young staff member sayss "are you ready to... More
