I love Tay Street Cafe. The food is excellent, the service great. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and the standard is always extremely high.

Reviewed March 25, 2013

So SO nice to find more and more places actually cooking real foods from scratch - And Tay st Cafe does this very well - Ate here three times over the weekend - two breakfasts and a late brunch - Loved it, every time something different, every time good fresh perfectly cooked food, Highly recommend

Good value food however distinct lack of attention to detail since original owners left.
Menue lacks choice and originality .....still reasonable value for money

“We Love, Love, LOVE Tay Street Beach Cafe”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Fun, happy, lovely place to dine near the beach. It's dog friendly, low key, and relaxed. The menu is enticing with a number of choices for all palates. We love all of the egg dishes for breakfast, especially Eggs Benedict. The Thai Beef Salad is the best I have ever had. I crave it and need to go back for more. The service is always efficient and gracious. We take visiting friends and family here and are never disappointed. This is one not to miss either before or after a walk on the beach. Drink coffee, drink wine... Both are delicious here.

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went here after noticing the cafe was often packed but were extremely disappointed in everything, the food, the service, the road noise (and no view of the beach whatsoever) and especially the coffee. Won't be going again.
