I've been coming here for many years. Yesterday with my husband we had coffee and cake. Both coffee and food were excellent. Service was fast. Recent update to decor is bright and cheerful. Recommended.

My friend and I reached Ricketts Point Cafe by walking along the cliff-top shared pedestrian /bike path from Black Rock. On a sunny day with a cool wind, it was a lovely 20 minute walk. So much so, that we repeated the exercise after we'd eaten our lunch. There was quite a crowd on the deck, but we managed to... More

We have been coming back here for the past 4 years, always friendly service and a fun place and great view across the Bay. Decided to have the Waffles with a banana, excellent with Flat White Coffees. Definitely worth stopping over, and very busy on a perfect Sunny day with temperatures around 95f. The restaurant is under covers and have... More

I know the café can't help the flies but our lunch was nearly spoilt by continually having to swat away the flies. We tried out the back overlooking the ocean first but were driven inside by the flies where it was a little better. Menu is ok with the usual favourites, servings are big and in fact my elderly mother... More

Overpriced, poor quality - food not edible and birds flying overhead or sitting above the food on the tables.

Great place for breakfast. On the balcony or inside if the weather is unpleasant. Reasonably priced food and friendly staff. Parking on Beach road is free but the public beach car park is very expensive..

We dropped in here for take away coffee and the staff were very obliging and made us feel welcome. The place had relaxed laid back feel to it and I look forward to going and having coffee indoors/outdoors when in the area next.

I just love Rickett's point cafe. The service is exceptionally. The grumpy manager ensures brilliant service. Its just too easy for a busy weekend cafe. We take our dogs for a walk, then tie them up outside. We go every Sunday and have been for 10 years. The food has actually got even better. The service cant, because it will... More

Regular visitors to Rickett's Point will know how busy and vibrant this beach side Cafe can get. They also know how good the food is and how reasonable the price is. The service is always prompt and friendly, well worth a Saturday or Sunday breakfast visit.
