We came in for lunch on super boat day. They were out of alot of drinks. But food and service was very very good considering how busy they where.

Called in for a morning coffee and couldn't resist the breakfast menu (available all day). Friendly greeting, great views of marina, good coffee and yummy breakfast. Also appreciated the very large carpark right next door at the marina for our car and caravan. Cafe is inside the yacht club.
