The food was good, service was good, the hard plastic chairs on the outside deck were very uncomfortable. The view over the water was lovely.

I really love this cafe. It is one of my favourite places to go to when I'm back home. The river views are sensational. There is a peaceful and relaxed vibe. You can people watch as locals and tourists stroll by, or gaze out to the river at the boats, jet skis and kayaks! I have always found the service... More

Great location overlooking the estuary with good food and good service. Very popular so the crowd indoors on this cold early morning made it a bit noisier than if we had been able to sit on the outside where it was even more pleasant later in the morning.

We were walking along the foreshore at lunchtime so decided to stop for brunch there. The service was very good, the food not so. The ham and cheese croissant was average. The smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel disappointing (very little cream cheese, scrape only). The blt on Turkish was ok. The coffee were good.

I think this is the best place for breakfast in Mandurah, Great food, Friendly service, and water view with dolphins. One of the few cafes who's seating is not on/facing a busy road.
