Reviewed August 17, 2012

Its right on the beach what more is there to say.the scenery and the passing traffic, friendly atmosphere blends in nicely for a mid-drive break when you drive on the coastal road.

“Passable”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Tables were uncleared, wedges were brought out without sour cream (they had run out - but didn't tell us when we ordered). Food was OK, but nothing super special.

“Sunday Brunchtime”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

called in for the 1st time in ages for a bite to eat & weren't disappointed, appeared a lot cleaner & freshened up since last time we were there. Good selection on the menu & elected for burger and steak sarnies served with fries. Burger was very juicy & went down a treat, fries were sensational & best I have had for a long time, unfortunately the wifey's steak sarnie was average & she didnt finish it.
As usual it was a great atmosphere with quite a few people around & live music had just started as we left. Won't hesitate to go back again & hopefully the steak will be better next time.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I'm staying at the Ellis Beach bungalows so I had dinner there last night and breakfast this morning. We stay at Ellis Beach for a week every year the difference in this place in a year is amazing. It's been painted and the staff are great and the food is FAB! Expect a good pub meal and you won't be disappointed. Great sized meals no one will leave hungry. I had the banana pancakes this morning and my husband had the eggs Benny - delicious - the pancakes are massive! They have live music on the weekends and it's a great location directly opposite Ellis Beach.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Left Cairns early on the way to the Daintree and decided Ellis Beach for breakfast. A good choice - even though a crowd had ordered just before us the service was still speedy. Plenty of choice on the Menu from full brekky to just toast etc. Great coffee and judging by the number of cars stopping for coffees etc a reputation has been established. Poached eggs done really well (could have been a larger size), nice fat toast, crispy bacon all delivered to our table in the sunshine. A wonderful spot!
