We stopped here several times on our recent visit to Kakadu, both for refreshments and also for dinner after watching the sunset. They do a great range of fresh fruit drinks and thai food - the portions are very good.

Enjoyed a basic lunch on a hot Sunday in this cafe and we were impressed by the efficiency and the food quality produced. They sell a reasonable range of meals in a basic setting

Great little café with great food and refreshing cool drinks. Meals are a lot bigger than you realize. The staff were helpful, patient and ready for a chat. Don't pass this little gem if you are in the area.
