“quality and convienience”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were able to order quality gourmet food and then walk the 20 mtrs back to our room to eat or enjoy the waterside ambience of the cafe and the entertaining string trio.
The dishes were filling and the selection was diverse.

“Delicious Meals.... bring an appetite”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had breakfast here on Sunday and all our meals were top notch, including the milkshakes... yum yum.
Recommend bringing a decent appetite, because not only is their food gorgeous but the servings are BIG.

“Good Food with a View”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Love this place, have visited twice now within the last month and enjoyed our meal each time. Service can be a bit slow, but the ambience etc makes up for that. Prices are reasonable, food good quality and staff attentive and pleasant. Would recommend a visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

While staying in Urangan this cafe became our favourite right from the very start with the outstanding customer service and views over the marina. The food was also fantastic. We returned the 2nd day for breakfast and even tho it was different staff on we received the same great service. Coffee is amazing too. Highly recommended!

“Great outdoor eating venue in any weather”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Just went there for fathers day breakfast. Staff were excellent and welcoming. Food was wonderful. We have found it is great outdoor eating venue in any weather. One of the best views in Hervey Bay. Strongly recommend the Seafood Chowder. Very romantic at night.
