“Great cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is an excellent little cafe just down the road from Cottesloe Beach. We have been there for breakfast a number of times and have not been disappointed. The selection is very good and, depending on the weather, one can choose to eat inside or on the pavement. On the downside, the prices are quite expensive and parking can be very difficult in the morning.

“Always quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Three of us went here for lunch on a Saturday. It is located just off the beach strip in Cottesloe. There are tables both outside on the pavement and inside. We were seated quickly and water was brought straight away as were the menu's. The Lunch menu was a reasonable size and the prices were good. They also do the breakfast menu which was extensive. We had a scoopon which made it exceptional value. The food was good. the homemade hash browns were excellent, more like potato Arancini. The food came out in excellent time and the coffees were hot and good quality. The small minus was that two of us ordered the full breakfast, and the toast came pre buttered, which isn't great if you don't want the butter.

Would always come back here, there has obviously been new owners in the last couple of years, but the quality has remained the same.

“Quiet Corner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This place is just off the main drag at Cottesloe but well worth the deviation up the street to find this quaint cafe. The food is very good and the coffee also.

“Excellent for a morning breakfast treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Dropped in for Mothers Day breakfast under the sun and the Norfolk Pines. Lovely location. Surprisingly we were asked if we had booked - have they changed their policy? Expecting the usual queue and wait we were amazed to find it not very busy on such a special day and we got a table straight away. As always service was prompt and efficient. Menu is good - it always good to take your time ordering so you can see what they bring out for other tables. Anyway food was top class and delivered quite promptly - maybe because there weren't a lot of people there.
A lovely breakfast enjoyed by the "Mum".
Tip, this is dog friendly, if you have a well behaved dog you can sit outdoors with your pooch.
