Warm friendly welcome to this relaxed cafe. Sat outside to soak up the atmosphere. Coffee was great, service good and cafe clean fresh and appealing. We had scrambled eggs and the fritters. Fritters were delicious. Good size serve, tasty and nice sides. This is definitely the best of the eateries along this waterside strip. Will absolutely return.

Great menu with lovely fresh ingredients. Coffee here is fantastic. Plenty of seating indoors and outdoors. Most tables look out to the esplanade and water. Very convenient to the Rumba Beach Resort. Try the pancakes - absolutely delicious!

Had two poached eggs on Turkish toast and a bottle of XXXX gold. For some reason ordering the eggs and toast seperately worked cheaper than ordering the dish off the menu. Even the waitress couldn't figure out why.
