Rocked up to Alf Resco looking for somewhere to just grab a sandwich. Could see from further down the street that there was something a bit special here as folk gathered on the street outside the establishment and you could here the laughter and banter as we approached. Compared to other places we had scouted out, there was real life... More

Café Alf Resco has a buzzing atmosphere with a great selection of freshly made foods, especially there All Day Breakfasts!!! The service is efficient and the staff extremely friendly. Finally the place it self has a querky but different look to it which makes it a great environment 👍

We were recommended to eat here by our friend. We visited early on in regatta week so it was rather busy. Service was good just slow due to amount of people. Portions were good sized and scrambled eggs were nice, I just personally felt that the menu choice was quite small.

We visited during regatta week and it was heaving even at 8am on a Tuesday morning. Whenever we have been passed there is always people queueing outside as tables can only be booked for 10 or more. The avocado egg / bacon/ smoked salmon breakfasts were lovely I just would have preferred a poached egg. Children are well catered for... More

For nearing two decades my husband and I present our mobile burger bar throughout Regatta week. As such, we can NEVER make the time to eat here - UNTIL TODAY!!! It's full of real people, not tourists. Dogs allowed. The breakfast was very fresh, quite filling and by Dartmouth standards, reasonably priced. 'Andsome.

Our first visit to Alf Resco despite visiting Dartmouth every year....oh what we have been missing!! Busy, vibrant place with all food freshly prepared. The fresh orange juice and smoothies were the best we had ever tasted and the food was all tasty, plentiful and extremely reasonably priced. The staff were all very pleasant, efficient and keen to deliver each... More

Arrived in Dartmouth, and headed straight for Café Alfresco for breakfast! As good as always. Lots of choice for breakfast from Granola, Pastries to Full Breakfast. Kids kept entertained with colouring books

Tip. If you're an Aussie looking for a 'decent' coffee - latte - try ordering here BUT from the Takeaway station at the entrance. They will put the coffee in first in a takeaway cup whereas if you order inside its served in a tall glass with the coffee poured in over the milk..........don't know why? Give it a go.

Thank Rosie8302
