Took our well wrapped packages down to the blowhole. Chips were crunchy and not oily, fish was grilled beautifully with a fresh garden salad on the side. Will make this my... More

This was a travel pit stop visit. It was time to stretch the legs and get a cuppa to keep me going. I was impressed by the girls knowledge of gluten free items and the excellent service she provided.

The food here is ok but it is a bit pricey and they slug you even further for public holidays which would be ok except they are already expensive enough for a fish and chip place. Staff are nice and deserts and coffee of a high quality.

stopped for brunch and ordered coffee and food. Coffee ok food ok the dark colours on the furniture and building gives it an old and tired look unfortunately. It's located in the main strip with all the other coffee shops.Service ok but still only your just average shopping centre cafe.

Morning couples breakfast out after dropping the daughter at school. Scrambled eggs on toast with bacon and gourmet eggs roll. Great little spot, quiet on a Friday morning. Great service. Meals a little amateur in quality but overall a comfy and nice place. Egg rating = Dang.

Wonderful seafood chowder at a reasonable price. The takeaway fish and chips is probably the best around(at its price)

Grabbed 2 takeaway coffees to have over at the harbour. Service quick but coffee very bland. I didn't finish mine which never happens!
