“Excellent location, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

The menu is more interesting than you'd expect for a little cafe on the beach. The food was really good and the location is outstanding. At busy times like school holidays it can be difficult to get a table, but that's to be expected

“Great breakfast & a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Have only been here for breakfast, but it was terrific. Unbeatable location right on the beach, efficient & friendly service and the food is really good: everything from full on cooked to delicious muesli with berries. The eggs benedict (they had all the ham/salmon versions also) looked incredible. This is the mid north coast's best coffee. The place is packed with locals as well as tourists and it seems you often need to wait for a table. It's worth it. Don't forget your hat, although there are market umbrellas so it's not completely exposed.
