“Go for the view”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Disappointing having to order at the counter. This change in the standard of the service is not reflected in a reduction in the price. We were a table of 6 for breakfast. After ordering at the counter our meals came out within about 10 minutes and everyone was happy with their meals all consisting of eggs of some description. When ordering we asked that the coffee be served after the breakfast. In reply to this request we were told to come back to the counter to order the coffee when we wanted it. Meals were good but how about bringing back table service?

“Save your money and have Breakfast somewhere else”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We have been to Busselton many times and this time thought we would treat ourselves to breakfast at "The Goose" before starting the drive back to Perth. (2-1/2 hours) I wish we had gone anywhere else than here. We did ring the night before and reserve a table for two - it was inside, against a window and in the glaring sun. We were squinting. The restaurant was only about a quarter full - so not sure why they chose to stick us there. We ordered - at the counter - bacon, sunny side up eggs and toast. Simple enough. 40 minutes later we were still waiting and people who had arrived after us had received their meals within 10 mins of being seated. My husband went to ask where our meals where and we were told they were 2-3 mins away. Obviously they had been completely forgotten. When they came out - the bread was not toasted at all - it was sliced, cold bread. The sunny side up eggs that I had, still had the clear 'white' sliding off the egg. I did not eat them as raw eggs and salmonella was not what I had ordered. I could have had - and have had, the same meal at the Busselton Dome - where it would cost less and have been better prepared. We will never go back there.

“eating by the jetty”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

The cafe is well situated with a good view towards the Busselton Jetty. If you like hot chilli in your pasta dish, this is the place to come. I like chilli but it was a bit overpowering. Cakes looked good but I abstained.

My mango lassi was delicious.
