“Excellent coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Well above average coffee that undeniably competes with the best in capital cities. Visits 2 years apart didn't change my opinion of the double ristretto they make -which is easily 8+ out of 10. The food is good value and quality even catering for gluten-free consumers with a local bread sourced from Burkhardt's Bakery in Port Macquarie, which I have never tasted better. Good enough service for a cafe that encourages rapid seating turnover, rather than a lazy brunch.

Really great venue and location. The quality of the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Slightly reduced seating areas although certainly worth visiting for breakfast.

“Benchmark Beachside Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Friendly staff, fresh and interesting breakfast selections, quick service, tasty well presented food and good vide all make for a highly recommended breakfast or lunch spot. Hubby and I ate here on Saturday and Sunday morning for breakfast. Weekends seem to be slightly easier to grab a table as during week plenty of working locals seem to drop by. Choose from the blackboard menu, order at the counter and enjoy!

“Busy, Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Don't let the crowds of locals fool you, this is a great breakfast stop. We noticed many locals stopping in to pick up takeaway coffee and breakfasts. Two mornings in a row we visited the Milkbar and ordered different food on both mornings. The good quality food was served quickly and hot. Service was great although the line-up to order can be a bit frustrating (the locals make sure the line is long). The ambiance is nice looking over the park to the beach and up the coast. There can be a little street noise but this is a small price to pay considering the rest. Don't expect to find it open after mid afternoon.
