“Very nice food, Genuine Gluten free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

A great little cafe with all food made on premises. So confident are they that their food is good that the kitchen is in full view of the diners - no secrets there. They are fully aware of Gluten Free requirements and do it well. A nice range of cafe food, in a sunny opposite a beachfront park. If you are looking for good quality food at a reasonable price, and a nice atmosphere you won't be disappointed. Service is excellent and they have a range of their own organic products.

“A great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The breakfast menu is interesting and has a good variety of dishes on offer. The coffee is good and the service not quite as cranky as one might believe from the cafes name.

“Very, very nice all round”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

A great range of gluten free meals and all day breakfasts with a wide selection to choose from. Reasonabley priced city cafe-style food in a really nice setting overlooking the park. Heaps of parking which is a change for Merimbula.

“Its THAT good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

With plenty of available parking space, a huge level park for the kids to play and beach across the road, Cranky Pants Cafe has plenty to offer and thats before the food.
Open early till late there is a different menu on offer here that separates it from most other cafe's. Off the all day breakfast menu try the rancheros. They are absolutely brilliant. Milkshakes for the kids (or adults) are served the old fashioned way, the salads are diverse and scrummy. In all you will find yourself eating here quite a bit as its hard to go elsewhere when its that good.
