As a healthy fussy eater I was impressed with the small selection available on the breakfast menu. Orders are taken at the counter, which worked well in our large group as we could pay seperate with no confusion. The cafe has an open feel, seating in an out door area (overlooking the park and water) but sheltered from the weather.... More

Great cafe in the beach park. Had an iced coffee and cake and both were superb. Highly recommended based on location and other TA reviews.

Despite being the middle of peak holiday season, the food was outstanding, served fast, and by friendly staff. The fruit crushies were delicious and refreshing. The bruschetta was outstanding. The fries were too salty, but everything else was great. Amazing view just a stone's throw from park and beach.

Two fruit crushes, $8.50 each and very tasty they were. Fresh ingredients and made quite quickly even though they seem to be always busy. Seemed to have quite a few healthy meal options as well. Worth a look when you are in the area.

Great food, coffee, friendly vibe and park side location make this an ideal meeting place to relax and comfortably send sound time catching up. Not cheap, but nothing is these days.

It's got a lot of amenities when you come from the beach or swimming in the local creek, and the view is splendid. You simply give your order at the counter, get a number, and hope for the best - which generally arrives as promptly as it can, given how deservedly popular the place is. It's all very informal.

Great location and coffee - service is very slow. This is a very popular location close to beach and walking tracks.

This was next to our accommodation so we could go for a swim the stop here for a coffee and cake. The view is great with indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely park and right on the estuary. Coffee was great with a nice range of cakes and slices. Went here four or five times on our stay. So relaxing

Is in a perfect location but very well decked out. Menu is great and for either breakfast, brunch or lunch. Ideal even for a quick coffee. Very kids friendly and food staff
