Ask a local how to get there, as a visitor you will not find it. Situated in the industrial area in a "shed". The decor is something that most of us look at and see it as either fantastic or think we are in a cleaned up rubbish dump, lots of old gear. Food is great, some items a bit... More

Guys and girls, this is a good place to go for a weekend Brekky, plus they have live music too (pretty sure it's during the week too). The coffees were pretty damn good, and the food is delicious. If anything, I reckon the food serving sizes could be a little bigger, but that's because I'm a big guy. Well done.

We ate here every day while we stayed in Alice for lunch or breakfast and one day for both! Everything we tried was off the charts delicious. The owner is usually there and she is super friendly and helpful. We both loved the beet hummus! Wow: what we would give for that recipe!

So went to the Waterfall for breakfast. Ordered coffee and the Moroccan Aussie $29 all up. Coffee was cold so sent it back, and asked for it to be extra hot. That didn't happen and the Moroccan well the flavors did not work all in all very disappointed. Won't be going back.

We have been to the Watertank Cafe several times, it never fails to please. Live music on the weekends, great selection of food, prices are on the higher end. Only note service is a bit slow but always friendly

We have been in Alice two days and so far this is our third visit! The food is fresh and healthy with an interesting spin. The Moroccan Aussie for breakfast is a must.

I had breakfast here with a friend about two weeks ago. The Watertank Cafe has a great atmosphere and the floor staff are very friendly. However, we both ordered the "herbie ham", which was basically toast, avocado, Camembert cheese and ham with a hollandaise sauce. For $18.00, the quality of this dish missed the mark - big time. The ham... More
