Great location overlooking the Noosa River, a good menu but patchy in quality. My duck was excellent but my partners seafood risotto was bland and appeared devoid of seasoning. As for the prawns, they were hard to find. Service amateurish and a combination of over...More

This cafe has recently changed ownership and a new menu as well. We are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can eat either inside or outside and have a look at our wine and beer menu for a cool drink while you look across to the wonderful view of the river. We cater for large and small groups
