Right on the beach with spectacular views and a relaxed atmosphere we serve uncomplicated and fresh seafood made from the very best ingredients in an iconic award winning building. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner inside the cafe and offer take out from our kiosk on the end of the building. We recommend booking a table, you can do this by emailing or calling us at the cafe.
