Great to find quality food (pastries, doughnuts) and coffee. Nice location and pleasant setting. Didn't have breakfast or Dinner here but everything in between. Kept going back so must be good!

“Inconsistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Visited on three occasions mainly for coffee in the morning. Each time the coffee was of different quality depending on whom the barista on the day was. We also tried some of the bakery items and they were all of a good quality. Get the coffee consistent and this place would be great with a nice outside area to sit on the deck.

“Lovely food & location, perfect for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

I spotted this new cafe set in a pretty whitewashed house with a verandah around it in Muri beach and saw it had a big garden - which looked great for our group who had 2 toddlers, given that space & somewhere for us to watch the kids safely was important on this trip! What a pleasant surprise.
We had brunch here that was absolutely delicious - Eggs Benny, French Toast & Bacon & Eggs various ways, all really good. I had scrambled egg which is often rubbery or dry & disappointing but theirs was top notch. Herby, soft & fluffy and delicious! There was a sandpit and swing set down the back that kept the kids amused, as we sat in a beautiful tropical setting. We were also tempted by the tasy donuts, slices and breads so took some away with us. Best Louise Cake I've had in years and the jam donuts - OMG, to die for.
Great service too by friendly staff, this is definitely my new fave brunch and lunch spot on the island.
