This cafe has the worst and most inefficient process for serving customers. We waited an hour just for someone to take pur order...then another 30 mins for what was an average and over priced breakfast. Would avoid this place. We will not be back.

We took a day trip to Port Elliot to enjoy the summer sunshine. Stopping at Cockles for lunch was a good decision- they cater for dietary requirements well with delicious food and drink. Service was polite, friendly and prompt.
