Nice coffee

Very nice, great coffee. But please don't split bills amongst 6 people during the busy summer period! Took them 20min to pay while we waited to order.

The chips. The best. The other food is awesome but just go for the chips. Seriously though, this is a great little café that also does hampers (if you are searching for a souvenir of local produce). They have a childrens colouring table so you can linger over your coffee and look across the road at the campers in summer.... More

Stopped here yesterday morning with my cycling group. Ordered the standard coffees etc and got to taste the most extraordinary toasted fruit loaf with flavored butter. yum! I plan to ride here for breakfast again soon. One of the best places to eat. Great customer service ! Definitely recommend the Tasting Station.

We stopped for lunch and had smashed avocado and feta topped with a poached egg and apple and mango juice. Relaxed family vibe and they also sell local produce. Run by a family who live in McCrae. A great find, opposite the beach and camping ground.

The food is served on wooden platters. Fortunately I had booked for 9.30 as it was very busy with happy holiday makers. Nice retro vibe with... More

We had a great breakfast here. It was well presented and tasty. The coffee was ok but not great. There is a good kids area in the corner that our youngest enjoyed.

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit we have been here 6 times in the past two weeks! Was a perfect distance to bike ride from our rental in Rye. A great, diverse menu with something for all 6 of my family members. Huge credit is given for delicious gluten free and Fodmap friendly breakfast for my son. We were all... More

We stopped by the tasting station on our trip to Rye. The eggs Benedict was amazing, the crispy ham was very tasty and coffee was great! lovely staff and cool set up inside! Definitely recommend people to try this place out if you are around the rose bud area! ❤️

Food is yummy but thought the price was a bit on the high side. Staff just took orders didn't really engage us. There was a kid's table with toys for the kids which was nice while they waited for the food.

Great food and a fun atmosphere. Our toddler and our friends' young children loved playing in the children's corner. They had lots of coloring activities as well as toys available.
