The harsh reviews of this cafe do not reflect our experience. We had a decent coffee and rather yummy pumpkin scones. The setting is very pleasant, staff attentive and menu while basic, is extensive. I will be going back!!

I crave good coffee and like it short & black. $4.10 a cup is just too expensive! The view is very calming...

Ok place across the road from the park and waterfront, ok place for a cuppa.. Its no coffee club, so aim low and its ok for a small town like tin can bay.

We went for lunch today and ordered the Greek Burger. Sorry, I'm Greek and what we ate wasn't quite like any Greek Burger we've ever eaten. If you're not too fussy, the food's ok. The staff were very friendly.
