Don't expect small town prices, nor the average coffee quality. Coffee is great and you can get a decent (bacon-based!!) breakkie here.
Order at the counter.. Or take away drinks at the little kiosk at the door.. This place also makes pretty impressive thick shakes.

We have visited Cranky Cafe several times over the years for breakfast mostly, but also dinner, and takeaway. We have always been happy with the meals and coffee. Though today our five year old kids complained about being still hungry after eating the kids pancakes for breakfast. We have noticed that the serving size has gotten smaller and smaller over the years.

While the food is pretty good, the average rating is because of the cranky culture of the staff. The only time we have been there and had friendly service all round is during off peak time. Sigh, it could be so good.

Really good experiences on numerous visits. Every cake a winner, every meal tasty and generous. Staff were fine too, I left a rented accommodations spoon there when feeding my baby, and then left it. The staff happily gave me one of theirs to replace it.

We went to Cranky's same time last year and I got to tell you the food quality has gone down, the coffee is hideous and Ill never be returning especially with the Takeaway coffee window girl using foul language in front of customers and children.

Had a great meal, coffee and milkshakes. the service was very friendly and very helpful.
The fish had great batter and was very fresh, the nachos were perfect and we are going back for more.
If you are looking for a sit in meal or take away i would recommend this place highly. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. The location is right near the beach perfect for a beach snack.
