“Great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food here is amazing! The servings are absolutely huge which is fantastic for me as I'm heavily pregnant and my hubby is a big eater. The food is very fresh and was quick to arrive at our table. The service wasn't the friendliest nor the quickest but wasn't really that bad and it was such a beautiful, relaxing place to sit and wait.

“Lovely relaxed breakfast on a rainy Saturday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Pass Cafe was an oasis of calm and warmth on a windy wet Saturday morning . Food and coffee both good and staff very friendly . We sat for ages reading the complimentary newspapers and just chilling in the awful weather .

“Shame the food didn't match the view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

This cafe sits right on the beach and obviously has wonderful views of the beach. Food was ok but quite expensive. Manageress was quite snooty towards my wife, as she pointed out the potato was undercooked, on the special she ordered. $30 for a chicken and badly cooked potato seems steep

“Best views, worst coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I have been 3 times. Twice too often. Pumpkin bread had sour aftertaste. Coffee undrinkable- perhaps the arrogant guy who made it has no barista skills. Toast took 32 mins to arrive, despite 2 reminders (and there were only 4 people there).
Possible one of the most scenic locales in the region; atmosphere, wild life, rainforest and sea spray. Lift your game, Pass Cafe managers, or move on.
