We ordered iced coffees... we shouldn't have. 16 bucks of icey, grainy, weak flavoured coffee, but with good amount of cream on top. Would be heaps better if they made it with ice cream! Nice service, but overpriced slushy.

Came here for Breakfast recently and was pleasantly surprised by the great food and atmosphere - the Eggs benny was delightful as was the Lychee Smoothie to wash it down - will certainly be back. Views are great also...

We reserved a table outside and luckily it wasn’t too hot. We all ordered something different. Great choices and food didn’t disappoint. Hot chocolate to die for but sweet so be warned if you don’t like sweet. The banana and walnut waffle was also delicious...More

This cafe is located by the strand so it’s a great place to do breakfast and catch up with friends for coffee and cake etc. The breakfast I’ve had here has been ok. I come here for the kids, they love the pancakes and milkshakes....More
