“Great location... the rest is average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Our family had a Sunday brunch and although the food was plentiful and wholesome there wasn't anything special about the place other than the location. The decor is nothing special either. This place could be so much more in order to capitalise on the prime location.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have never eaten here but have visited on many occasions for a drink whilst walking along the beach. The staff have always been friendly and prices are OK, but the best bit is the fantastic view.

There's not much beats sitting here on the balcony with a beer watching the world go by, it's just the perfect location.

There's also the free bike hire out front if you're feeling energetic, just bring ID with you.

“Nice view. That's about it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

This establishment is staffed by volunteers apparently which is great except that removes the incentive to provide meals and coffees in under two hours. Expect long delays for average food at an average price. Although it is conflicting to write a negative review for a volunteer cafe people must understand that unless they want to kill two hours avoid this option.
