Apart from the great ocean view and the good service it has, brunches are really yummy with a big portion.

Had the biggest delicious toutons I've ever seen with a side order of fried Bologne and tea. My friends had bacon and eggs with toast and an omelet which they thoroughly enjoyed. It is a small spot with a view of the harbour which is wonderful. On a Friday morning around 10:00 it was busy but there were tables available.... More

Thought I would try this little place for lunch. Ordered the B L T and fries. The BLT and was dry for $12 I would expect some fixing on the sandwich and what's with the fries they were soggey and full of fat. And I'm still hungry. I won't go back

We had breakfast, the old scrambled eggs with bacon and eggs over easy with sausages. The coffee is good the food is very good. I didn't care for their sausages. But all in all it's ok. The service was excellent. But the toast was a Beautiful Thing, Homemade Bread! If we go back again it'd have just toast and coffee.
