We enjoyed our lunch at this cafe. The food was good and not overpriced. The cafe was warm and the staff were very friendly.

Perfect for a quick stop here whilst travelling up or down the coast. Good customer service, lots of food choices, eat in or takeaway, and very nice, strong coffee.

We had a light breakfast with coffee and it was lovely. Also bought a nice piece of pecan and walnut brownie as a take away as it looked delicious, and it was.

With six of us in our party of various ages, they had a number of options to appeal to our party. We had everything from French toast, waffles, fish n chips and all of it was very good. Would definitely eat here again.
