Came here on a Saturday morning and were lucky to get a table, this spot is quite popular. Bring a coat if the weather is cool as the breeze off the river increases the chill factor.

A wonderful place to sit on the deck looking out to the views of the Burnett River under the leafy canopy. The setting is very peaceful and the food very tasty. Large servings and great value for money.

Had breakfast with the family here on the weekend. Open at 7.30 on Sunday which is handy since most places don't open until 8. Lots of options to suit budgets and they are big servings, you won't leave hungry! One of our favorite spots for breakfast or brunch.

Dropped in on a Sunday morning after a walk along the river. Ordered the coffee/raisin toast special ($5). Coffee was nice, strong but not bitter. Raisin toast was toasted / buttered to perfection. Food/coffee came out in a timely manner.

We here for breakfast. Its a nice location with plenty of free parking. You order at the counter & find a table. We waited about 45 minutes for our breakfast to arrive & it wasn't a busy morning there.
