Lovely spot and was nice enough to sit outside. Even though they were nearly full the food arrived quite quickly. I had the lamb salad and was up there with the best I have had and was plentiful. Hubby had the seafood chowder and rated that as well, plenty of seafood and thick.

We had about 1/2 hour between the ferry and the train so we went to the Seabreeze for a sandwich. The meat, bread and veggies were very fresh. The staff understood our short timeline and made the 2 sandwiches very quickly. We were able to take the meal away for consumption on the train. Definitely a place to get a... More

Wonderful outlook from the café- didn't have to wait long for any of the meals I ordered (breakfast and lunch two days). Beautiful fresh produce, and a generous serve of tasty salad (dressing, shaved cheese, sundried tomatoes, greens). The big breakfast was good, especially the hash browns and sausages. I also had the fish cakes and chicken tenderloin salad- both... More

We ended up in Seabreeze by chanche: the options we had seen in trip advisor were either expensive for lunch or were closed, which was amazing cause Seabreeze had a better location, the greatest view (in front of the shore) and the food was amazing. We had a fish and chips and a Captain Cook Fishcake. Both were good, but... More

Stopped for breakfast on a cold grey morning, but after ordering decided to sit outside as the interior was overheated and humid. Partner days eggs benedict was acceptable and their long black okay. Sadly my decaf mocca was weak water milk with no taste of chocolate or coffee. The cafe looks like it needs an overhaul. Stacked umbrellas in the... More

Was looking for a light and reasonably priced lunch and this was supplied in the special of the day Kiwi Lamb burger with fries. Nicely presented by friendly staff. I also had an Earl Grey tea which came in a pot with extra hot water. If the cafe wifi had been free would have given them a 5 as the... More

Was staying in Picton for a football tournament and had the big breakfast. I've had breakfast here before and it has always been great. I ordered my eggs to be poached. When the breakfast arrived at our table the plate was full with delicious bacon, mushrooms, sausages , sour dough bread, tomato and homemade hash browns. The only downside was... More
