This is a great place to have breakfast or lunch with the best tables overlooking the water. The menu is extensive with the usual breakfast and lunch items on offer. I went for the salt and pepper calamari from the specials board and, expecting a freshly prepared dish with chips and coleslaw, was somewhat disappointed by the taste and portion... More

We visited in September 2016. We have been to Caloundra many times and were always wanting to try this place and finally did as it was actually open at a time when we were walking past. Food was very disappointing and very overpriced. We paid $78 for a bacon sandwich, poached eggs, pancakes and 3 drinks - which for what... More

We swung by for a quick bite of lunch on Sunday. I'd heard and read some less complimentary reviews but we had no grumbles whatsover. The location can't be beaten so of course the prices might reflect that. Service was excellent, polite and very quick. Our order was simple - a turkey/cranberry/cheese melt and an open smoked salmon & avo... More

We use to love having breakfast on the water here. But after today's experience we will not be returning.. The older (asian apperiance) server's attitude and customer service skills were disgraceful to all patrons (espicaly behind there back) this location is on the high end of cost for food and there is not not much on the plate. Comments this... More

On the waterfront, with views to the mountains and acean. Food was very nice and well presented. Been there several times now. I had bacon and egg sandwich which was very nice. Others had scrambled eggs bacon and tomato just as good. Yum

Such a fantastic spot on the water means that this cafe does not have to try hard to attract customers. This is evident in both the standard of the food and the customer service. $50 for a couple of lukewarm, so-so breakfasts. Everything was clearly pre-prepared as it came out to us about 2 minutes after we'd ordered. Hash browns... More

We had a table right beside the water. Lovely breakfast location and the service was the best. No waiting, a smiling, happy waitress and the food and coffees were brought out at the times requested. Could not fault the whole experience :)

Eaten there a few times. Very friendly staff, love sitting outside overlooking the ocean. Meals usually palatable. Alas it was not to be on my wife's birthday. Pancakes took ages to get from time of order to table. Worst of all, they were burnt and dry with a minimal amount of maple syrup. Very disappointing.

If you get a seat outside by the water the setting is lovely, but that is where the experience ends. There is no table service and the food was overpriced and average - $17 for just bacon and eggs where we had the pleasure of waiting in line for 10minutes to order and pay, only for the server to be...
