I have been there a few times and whatever I order has always been really good. Took visitors there today and they just loved everything that they ordered. Service was great and didn,t take too long to cook..Highly recommend.

Order take away coffee and it is difficult to describe the taste of it: Everything except coffee. If you like dirty burnt water this is the place and don't order soy milk, it will lift your experience to a disgusting level.

I'm giving a rating of 3 rather than 2 in the hope that we just happened to visit on a bad day. We arrived at approx 8:30am on a Monday. As we had a group of 10, we needed to spread out over 3 tables. The young lady who took our order had a look of sheer boredom / utter... More

Twice we went to eat at this place and it was closed. Its called Early Birds but it was shut. They advertised breakfast and we thought we'd give it a go because we had to leave early next day, but they were closed.

Great service and nice open air cafe. Had a hangover cure and partner vegetarian with a rash of bacon. The servings were large and hard to finish off. Savoury mince delishes. Meals served with toast and real butter. Will be back.

We dropped in for a light lunch - staff were very friendly and service was fast. Lovely outdoor tables to sit at and get the breeze and watch people wander up and down the main road.

Laid back is one thing but not being open and letting customers know what is going on is a poor effort. I arrived at 9 am for breakfast and there was no sign saying if the cafe would open at any point in the day or if it was closed all week. Very ordinary service in a major tourist town.
