Had a great stop for lunch at this café! Great focaccia sandwich and FANTASTIC Iced Mocha! Very friendly staff work here, so nice to have a chat to. Lovely sea breeze on patio and across from the esplanade pool.

Stopped in for lunch and asked if they do take-away... They do, great. I got the bolognese - it's crap. It's spaghetti with mince and no sauce and minimal flavour. Cannot believe I just paid $17.00 for this.

We discovered this little café on our first day of our holiday and kept coming back. For the coffee lover this is the place to visit. The best coffee from any of the cafes. We visited for brunch on our last morning and it was die for. Lovely runny poached eggs crispy bacon...mmmmm. A must visit!!

Expensive food and they only serve you a small plate. Avoid this place and go to the many many other better restaurants next to this spot.

Nice coffee here, but not quite hot enough for me personally I usually ask for it extra hot. Staff very friendly as a rule. Good variety of breakfast dishes & cakes/pastries. Nice sitting out on the esplanade watching the world go by.

Thank RozfromOz
