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!

We just stopped in for a beer and ended up having the lemon meringue pie as well, was delicious. This is a top spot out of the sun with a breezy laid back feel.

Location is spectacular, and the staff were great! Food....not so much. The pie was pretty ordinary. The chips were soggy. The coffee tasted amazing if a little bit cool. Bit of a disappointment. Will try it again though as everyone can have an off day!
