We booked a table here for a family dinner, but when we arrived out booking either hadn't been written down or was lost, luckily they were still able to seat us inside. The layout in the main dining area is a bit cramped, they could...More

This place now has 5 coffee grinders with different coffees to choose from. Staff are fast and efficient and food prices vary from budget conscious to the real "foodie" experience. Outlook to Magnetic Island and the Rockpool is at arms length.

Another visit here and still good. The three overtaxed waitresses still carried a smile! Had The Rocks with smoked salmon - potato stack with avocado salsa, poached eggs, pesto and paprika aioli - absolutely delicious! Good coffee too. Continues to be a favourite!
