We ate simply at this Café but could not fault a thing. Staff were extremely helpful and attentive and cleared away plates very efficiently and often. Food (just a toasted sandwich on this occasion) was brilliant and the Mango smoothie the best I've ever had....More

This location is gorgeous: as promised it is a shady location with mango trees aplenty. The food is terrible. I ordered a Nasi Goreng and it was the worst I've ever had. It had chopped spam and dry egg as the contents. No spice, no...More

A friendly cafe situated in the outdoors in Broome.Open 0700 hrs 7 days for an all day breakfast and for lunch and during the week remaining open for afternoon teas. The only table service cafe in Chinatown. Daily Specials and fresh salad choices.We take pride in the fact we are not a fast food outlet with pre cooked bain marie type produce. During busy days delays may be experienced as all food is cooked once orders are received.
