Stopped in for a quick coffee and milkshake. Sat outside on the deck with views over the water and enjoyed the sunshine. Service was very prompt and the coffees and shakes arrived in no time. Both were great. Will be back.

We love the Waterfront Cafe for its yummy food and bustling atmosphere. We just wish we could get a table more often!

After a big night on New Years this was the perfect pick me up for New Year's Day. Had a great cold pressed juice which totally hit the spot and the cofffee and jaffles were really great.

On a rainy holiday morning, this place was very busy, but the cheerful staff coped well, as did the kitchen. We enjoyed a tasty omelette and a hot and fresh croissant and the real leaf tea was lovely. Plenty of choice for lunch, as well.

Stopped in for morning coffee. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Very busy but tables were turning over quickly and cleaned fast by efficient staff. Coffee was great, as requested - hot and strong. Salted Caramel Banana Muffin was so big I couldn’t eat it...More
