Great food - not too pricey - we went for breakfast. The service was great but we watched the place fill to the brim before we finished our food. I wanted to relax over my coffee but felt bad for the line of people outside waiting. Unusual breakfast items - also items to purchase and take away.

Loved this quaint cafe / restaurant . Food very nicely presented. Drinks a genuine cold Milkshake in the silver aluminum cup that keeps it chilled . Lovely atmosphere with hidden rooms to hold function make this a different venue for a special event . Opposite a lovely park and Beach spot makes it a perfect spot for Sunday Brunch.

What a superb lunch, the food and service were excellent. We were visiting the Gold Coast for a few days whist in Australia and were lucky enough to stumble across this hidden gem. The beautiful location and the delightful choices on the menus only added to our holiday experience.

Have been here on three occasions and have always found it to have the same degree of excellence. Today went for breakfast and were yet again not disappointed. Chose to have an outdoor table facing the water. Given that today is a very hot and humid day the breeze coming off the water was very welcoming. My partner and I... More
