“Lovely cafe for dipping into the ocean and some tasty food.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I go to The White Elephant on a regular basis when the sun is shining in W Australia, combining swimming, eating and socialising in one easy move, making a day extra special. The staff are always friendly and the food fresh and tasty, with some memorable dishes. It's also a great place to just go and order a coffee and watch the world go by, or your children playing in the sand. I went to The White Elephant recently and ordered a cooked breakfast, and when I asked for sauce was told that that would be an extra 50 cents. I have eaten here often and have never been asked to pay more for condiments. When I commented on this, I was told that it is the same as ordering a pie from a service station, where sauce is extra. However, this is not a petrol station, and never before have I had to pay for sauce at an eating establishment, until now. This is not a cheap place to eat, and therefore I feel they really would benefit from extending their customer care just a little bit. Overall, this is a popular spot for a cuppa or a meal, but maybe don't expect sauce, or that extra little something.

A group of us went to this cafe for brunch and we were ALL pleased with our meals and drinks. Combined with the priceless ocean views this cafe is a wonderful dining experience.

“Go for the setting”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Great setting for a relaxing afternoon lunch. The food was good...not great. But the view and the location is perfect. Right on Gnarabup beach. It was a great start to my holiday.

“Lovely food, priceless view.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Lovely little cafe with beautiful food and a brilliant view. Service was great and a covered area meant we could get out of the weather and still enjoy the beach front view.

“Superbly located beach cafe”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The White Elephant Cafe on Gnarabup Beach,Margaret River,has got to be the best location around.You are almost ON the beach and look along the coast over the most pristine of beaches,with beautiful aqua waters in summer months.Best option is to take a walk from your accommodation in Prevelly,stop for coffee and breakfast(or lunch)then stroll back to your holiday house.The cafe is always bustling and friendly local staff make it a relaxed beach experience.It is a regular of mine!
