Description: I've eaten at this great little cafe twice now with friends and it has already become a favorite that I have already planned going back to in a week or so - and no doubt many times in the future..the atmosphere is very laid back and friendly, yet the service is professional and quick. The menu isn't massive, which I like, not hundreds of choices like some places, just a dozen or so excellent meal choices which are all freshly prepared - food is a mix of Aussie and Japanese...yum! Prices are good too, which makes eating out for breakfast and lunch very doable...there is also a surf/art shop in the back part of the cafe - good for picking up something special. I highly recommend this fabulous little place!!

Great coffee, food and atmosphere. Toys and walls to draw on to keep the little ones occupied!

I liked the atmosphere of this restaurant. The staff were helpful, they got the coffee right. The food is fresh. The servings were on the small side.

“Something new and different!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2011

This innovative cafe has a great relaxed atmosphere that makes you feel like you would be more than welcome to sit there for hours. There is finally somewhere you can go and not get an over-sized meal with chips and salad! The meals offered are light and different from anything you'll find in Coffs. The authentic Japanese and Australian meals are delicious and soooooo affordable.
The staff are extremely friendly, chilled out and their service is excellent. The whole feel of this small cafe, from the food to the art covering the walls, is a fantastic, relaxed, surfy, beach feeling. I will definitely return!

“"Yum Yum"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

This is great eatery ! The location is central and close to the beach. I have been back several times and also recommended Water to friends, the menu is ample but not complicated, which is nice - a big menu is far too complicated and it matches the comfy laid back vibe of Water. The service is friendly, the wait staff are accomodating and pleasant. The big surprise is in the food and the prices. It is not often that you can get this vibe and "yum yum" food for under about $15 for a main. Very very good and I would recommend this to any visitor or local.
