“Best cafe in Coromandel village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We have been here several times and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. This seems to be the preferred hangout for the locals which is always a good sign. Service can sometimes be a little slow but that's no problem when you're on holiday and the service is so cheerful. The coffee is Atomic and good, but not outstanding (but then I'm fussy about my coffee). Last time we visited we had the lamb hotpot for lunch - very tasty and good value.

“Disapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We ordered a seafood platter but were told they had run out of oysters, ok, then the waitress came back and said they were also out of fish. We thought oh well there goes the idea of eating local seafood and decided to have a steak instead. Then we ordered our wine and the very one we wanted they had also run out of. Think they need to take a serious look at their ordering and menu before the night starts. Very disappointed.
