This restaurant has the potential to capture all the feet in this area and it was quite busy, but the food was average, the service average and the view towards the beach good.

Lovely, airy restaurant with an enclosed balcony area, however, the service is very poor. They did not have the fish cakes and ordered the chicken schnitzel which was extremely oily and over cooked . Took ages to get our drinks and had to ask for them again. Didn't have any coke which we both ordered - how can you run... More

They make great pastries and breads and coffees, teas, juices and have a very generous menu which covers breakfast light lunches and cakes and of course beverages. We eat here often enjoying breakfast options, eggs benedicts are good, as are tasty croissants with fillings, generous healthy sandwhiches and even a burger or two. Enjoy the waitron staff.

This cafe is always busy on the weekend! But the team serving remain cheerful and efficient. While the coffees and the Bloody Mary's are excellent, the breakfast menu (apart from the corn fritter) is a little tired. Food is well executed but not inspirational. A reliable meet friends for weekend brunch option

We took our family for breakfast. They offer a good selection. The eggs benedict was a very choice. The coffee is also worth mentioning. You cannot leave without a loaf bread. They also sell very good take away option f you want to walk across the road and watch the locals surfing.

We had a late breakfast yesterday and it was quite decent. I ordered my eggs dead, but had to settle for firm. The buttermilk rye was quite enjoyable though. My wife had the salmon fish cakes, in my opinion the portion of fries was small. And although tasty, the cakes weren't very solid. The ambience and service were both fantastic.... More

Love the great variety of breakfast options on offer at Knead! They also have very good lunch offerings with pizzas and breads made on site. The perfect spot to grab a freshly brewed coffee before your walk on the beachfront. Dogs and surfboards welcome!

Knead has a great location on the beach front... and are always busy. However this means there service is more often than not slow and their attitude isn't perky as they are clearly overwhelmed. The pizza is yummy, the coffees good. Takeaway section has convenient kiddy area. A stones throw from all the stores and the beach.

Thank Victoria R
