This is our usual quick breakfast before the long journey back to Brisbane. Usually, this is the last of the Bay Magic before we have to leave. Unfortunately, the magic was missing today.

This review is for the bake house opposite the beach (they have another store too). The range of pastries are amazing and the food is always delicious. The coffee is very cheap & nice and strong. The pastries are fairly expensive however it is definitely worth it. The pies have real chunks of meat, not mince. I'd recommend the chocolate... More

They also have a place on the Esplanade. Cakes and pastries are tasty with a nice fresh selection. Some items are a bit pricey but worth the money

What a lovely experience for a birthday. Table was already laid and ready and looked exquisite. The food was excellent and the piping hot tea was plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff very friendly. Nice open area and very clean.
