“A good way to start the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Buy a paper & orange juice from the bakery and then sit outside Cockles whilst waiting for it to open each morning at 7.30 am. Then enjoy one of the best coffees on the South Coast along with a serve of raisin toast. I cannot think of a more pleasant way to start the day whilst holidaying in Port Elliot. Can't wait to do it all again next year.

“Great choices and the coffee is wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

lovely breezey cafe with plenty of staff and room for a busy lunch crowd. Several good options for vegetarians on the printed menu and the warm vege salad with haloumi cheese and veges with a balsamic drizzle was worth the short wait. My friend ordered the thai fish cakes and was delighted with her choice. Coffee was prefectly served

“Cant wait to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Such a happening spot, greeted at the door with a smile (unusual these days!) There was a wait on meals but it was explained today was the first day of a new menu . I had the fish and chips which was visually gorgeous and tasted amazing and partner had the crepes equally as gorgeous. The place was kept clean even though you could see the girls were busy, service was warm and friendly, coffee was divine! Iam so glad we stopped by one of the best dining expierences in along time.
