My sister & I, plus my 4 year old son went there for lunch. We didn't order much only a couple of salads, fresh juices, and mini lasagna for my son. When I got the bill for it whoa! Very expensive! about $70 just for lunch! Almost cost me an arm and a leg! I don't think I'll be going there for lunch again considering the price was way too high. Also the decor for the cafe was way too much I could hardly move.

Such a busy little cafe but the food is outstanding, had a party of seventeen including children, was a great event, only shame was the time it took to take orders and then how long it took to serve the meals, waitresses were hard to come by, but we were very impressed by the quality and presentation of each dish, would definantly return as the meals were good size and absolutely scrumptious, must thank Dean for his wonderful presentation of the birthday cake, cheers mate

great food, quick service. Tried to make a reservation for Friday night...was told they don't make reservations (I knew that was wrong). Was told to arrive with my party and wait to be seated. When we arrived..... they asked if we had a reservation!!! Other than that hiccup... good food good service.
Four in the party all with diffferent orders all said excellent.

We had coffee and cake here which were very tasty. Our daughter loved her Baci Mousse Cake. It was very pleasant sitting looking over the marina. Had a quick look at the menu and all of the meals sounded great. If we had more time in Hervey Bay we would of had a meal there.
