Had a very generous serving for our breakfast. But what stood out was the lovely lady who was so genuinely friendly and catered for us with a large plate of nice breaky.

You can almost miss the little cafe from the street. The view out the back of Smilers Cafe is a real surprise. Looking across to the boats at the marina is a very relaxing way to enjoy the lovely breakfast. The food and service have been great on each occasion. Prices are good too!

This place is hidden on the main drag (Nicklin Way, Minyama) among commercial premises but well worth the effort to find. Really casual (don't go naked, it's not that casual) and the staff are friendly and the service good. We had lunch at on the deck overlooking the Marina .. I had the Calamari and Chorizo Salad and the better... More
