It's peculiar how varied the reviews are about this place, which we had recommended to us by our B&B hosts. They serve small plates up to 6pm and large plates after 6pm. We got there about 5.30pm so chose two starters and two small plates and can honestly say the food was outstanding. The imagination in putting together the various... More

The team here are very creative and provide some superb meals, excellent cafe, and a great friendly ambience. Decor is nice, most tables shaded from sun, outdoor area has weather protection if inclement. Pizza place and Globe Theatre next door, Boardwalk cafe and a chicken and an ice cream shop across the road. This is a wonderful place for an... More

Service is quick and friendly with free wifi. Poached eggs and bacon on toast were excellent along with great coffee. This place is a gem and was very busy both inside and outside. Lots of free parking across the road was a bonus.

I'd not been to Milk & Honey for quite some and was most pleasantly welcomed. I sat at the joiner's table and was immediately asked if I wanted to order or if I needed to see a menu. I chose 2 poached eggs on fancy toast and added house smoked salmon side -- which to my delight was indeed an... More

Service was ok, felt it could've been a bit friendlier. Food was really nice and the location was very pleasant. Pricing was reasonable.

During the school Christmas holidays our family of four and often additional friends would go to Milk & Honey for brunch - the last time we visited (mid Jan) I was taken a-back when I ordered my husbands long mocciata, was then bought a short mocciata and when it arrived we let the waitress know it should have been a...

Nice place for breakfast with sea views and outside dining. Service was prompt and friendly. More expensive than a lot but worth it for the view

Milk and Honey has a more varied menu than some of the other waterfront eateries, and we enjoyed our meal. The service was friendly but erratic-we were given glasses of water on arrival but these were not refreshed, nor was a common water jug apparent. I ordered a soda which I expected to mix myself. The soda and syrup were... More

Met a friend here for lunch. Made to feel welcome. Ate pan fried fish with red quinoa salad and steak with coconut and tomato and corander salad. Just the right size for lunch and super tasty and both cooked perfectly. Total cost with 1 top class wine and 1 juice came to $65. Service and food were both faultless. Nice... More
