Had a fantastic breakfast. The blueberry pancakes were most excellent, and the bacon and cheese omelette was as good as any I've ever had. Only complaint--the guacamole was lame--come on Cody--tourists may not know good guac but the locals do! Get the grilled potatoes--just super!...More

Cody's is the type of breakfast place that they keep filling your coffee mug without even having to ask. The servers are all friendly and dedicated. We went for breakfast twice which breaks our usual rule of trying new places but it was too good...More

I had the French toast this morning at Cody's and it certainly lived up to its recommendation. The view from this restaurant cannot be beat. Service was a bit slow but wait staff was very attentive. Will return.

No bookings, so you just have to turn up. We only waited 15 minutes, at 11am on a Sunday - which is good going! Food here was fabulous. A top notch brunch breakfast and just what we needed. I had the Vege Hash, which I...More
