“Coffee is the best part”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

It's strong, smooth, and thoroughly enjoyable. If you can handle the eldritch screeches from the kids' playground nearby, Bain Park is a pleasant environment, but conversation can be difficult at times.

“Park side playing for the kids”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

My nephew can be a handful, at only two, but this location is great as the park nearby is fully fenced and able to be clearly seen from a short distance. Meals are also lovely with sensational looking cupcakes which I will be purchasing next time I am there.

“Superb coffee!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The coffee at Watermans is one of the best on the mid-north coast. It is hot, full of flavour and delicious. The food menu is creative and interesting and even the little cakes/ snacks delicious. Yes, the ambience is lovely, especially for people with kids who can play in the gorgeous park. Nice decor, stylish and all round very pleasant!! Sit indoors or out, either is very nice.

“Breakfast worth the drive”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We were staying at comboyne and drove the 40 min or so into wauchope hoping to find somewhere decent for breakfast. It was worth the drive, the food at watermans is excellent. Great location overlooking the park and lovely to sit on the deck in the sunshine. we ordered the eggs benedict and mushrooms/haloumi on sourdough. Both were excellent and all the other dishes we saw other diners eating looked great too. Fresh, tasty, generous portions and affordable. Highchairs available for the little ones and a great kids park opposite for the older kids. The desserts looked very tempting especially the fresh scones. Service could be lifted a little, customers were left to fend for themselves at the door rather than being greeted and seated however thats a small critisism for an overall a great experience and we would definitely return to waterford for the coffee alone which was a 10/10.

“Best French Toast on the Mid North Coast”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

My husband and I had breakfast here 23/3, we had not eaten here before but liked the atmosphere straight away, the seating is in the shade or you can sit inside, you look out over the gardens which are well kept (for Hasting Council this is amazing......) the staff are very friendly and the service prompt. I had the French Toast and in all my years of travelling the world I have never had anything as good as this, my husband had a "bacon and avocado" stack and it was also first class. Coffee was just right and I had a vanilla milkshake which was light fluffy and full of flavour, will definately be making the drive back here, well done to a great hidden secret.
