Our table was well situated outside in the garden. We received quick and efficient service and enjoyed a light lunch accompanied with a cool refreshing freshly prepared fruit juice. The cool garden atmosphere was such a pleasant experience away from the hot sun.

Went to this cafe for afternoon tea. Food was good, but we were eaten alive by sandflies. Would not return.

We had a late lunch here in this courtyard cafe - lunch service finished at 2 pm so be prompt. The cafe was very shady and would be lovely in the heat. The lunch menu is extensive with a good selection of hot food and also some sandwiches and wraps. The best item on the menu was the drinks. There... More

We visited Shady Lane for a quick lunch on a busy Saturday. Chicken burger was great. A pity about the sweet mango chutney which didn't add to it. The quiche Lorraine was similarly ample and served with generous salad. Lovely shady venue but service a bit lacklustre.

The Shady Lane cafe is in a lovely spot down Jimmy Chi lane, sheltered by trees and verandahs. The staff were a bit hard to find but the cafe wasn't that busy. We ordered drinks and cakes. The iced coffee was pretty average, quite weak with icecubes but no icecream. The carrot cake had delicious icing. When going to pay... More

While I was only there for a quick coffee and drink, the service was quick and friendly. Barista acknowledged me for my "wait" (not long at all) and the coffee was good! Centrally located and always busy. Must be doing something right.

We tried 3 times to obtain a table for 2, and on the last time one member of staff told us to wait a few minutes only to see the very rude more senior staff member give the table of four to a single person who only just walked up. The staff member who was alocating tables was very abrupt... More

Description
A friendly cafe situated in the outdoors in Broome.Open 0700 hrs 7 days for an all day breakfast and for lunch and during the week remaining open for afternoon teas. The only table service cafe in Chinatown. Daily Specials and fresh salad choices.We take pride in the fact we are not a fast food outlet with pre cooked bain marie type produce. During busy days delays may be experienced as all food is cooked once orders are received.
