I loved this place. Everything was delicious. Their pickled guacamole is incredible. I think we ate here for breakfast lunch and dinner. Sadly it's been a few months now so I cant remember the dishes, but the guac and the smoothies were amazing.

We stayed at beach dog cafe for a couple of hours since we wanted to escape the sun during lunch time. The place is great, we enjoyed the good vibes, the music and drinks/food. The strawberry dream smoothie was a dream. :)

We went for breakfast and liked it so much we went back twice more. The staff are friendly and chatty. The food doesn't come out fast but it's all really fresh so it's no problem. Really relaxed place to eat - would definitely go back
