We enjoyed both the location and our meals at the Shady Lane. The service was good too. I asked what meat was included in the nasi goreng and the server went back and checked for me. We were also pleased that the fish and chips included grilled fresh barramundi, not deep fried. It was a very hot day and they... More

It is indeed tucked away in a little nook. Searing us outdoors but it is indeed shady and we enjoyed coffee sitting under the trees while we contemplated what next to do. Coffee was ok and it was a welcome respite during our fossick around Chinatown

Popular place with friendly, capable staff. We just had coffee which was good. I think they have wifi but we didn't use it. Our brief time there was good, but too short to be able to offer more insight. Singles, couples, families seemed to be there. Mostly outside tables.

A good place to escape the heat. However the food and service are very average, but no worse than the alternatives in Broome.

We spent a while looking around the shops in Broome and needed some lunch. One of the shops recommended this place and it was a good choice. The outside sitting area was very pleasant underneath some trees and umbrellas. The fans kept us cool while we enjoyed our wraps and smoothies. We were there at the end of the lunch... More

A friendly cafe situated in the outdoors in Broome.Open 0700 hrs 7 days for an all day breakfast and for lunch and during the week remaining open for afternoon teas. The only table service cafe in Chinatown. Daily Specials and fresh salad choices.We take pride in the fact we are not a fast food outlet with pre cooked bain marie type produce. During busy days delays may be experienced as all food is cooked once orders are received.
