“Consistently amazing! Good food, service and price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I find nelson bay cafés quite mixed and this one is a GEM!!!! Went two days in a row and couldn't decide what to have because it all looked good! Ate poached eggs bacon and home made baked beans and the next day ate the tomato toast dish. My husband and son loved their meals too. I only found the cafe because I stayed in the Nelson hotel but will definitely come back!!! Good service and much cheaper than the marina restaraunts.

“Good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Nice friendly spot for a good coffee and a relaxed read of the paper. Out of the busy rush of the waterfront. Quite a nice breakfast menu, we are regulars and have always found the staff to be friendly but service can be a bit slow at peak times.
