They seemed to have a simple menu which is the same everyday although it was the specials that made us come in. They had a delicious prawn pasta one day and a chicken one the next. Nice to sit outside on a nice day, inside is a bit clinical though.

Stopped here for lunch one day while we were in Mission Beach. It was so good we came back for breakfast the following day. Full breakfast with coffee set me up for the day. Lovely.

I popped in for a takeaway coffee - it was really nice. The place is looking refreshed and inviting. I think I will have to come back for lunch - the display looks great.

Had lunch at Zenbah - the meals were massive. The seating outside was relaxed. We had salt and pepper squid which was served gluten free.

This little restaurant food was great. Feels more like a pub inside though. Best sweet potato chips. Stopped to eat for seafood but ended up having steak.

We enjoyed the friendly service a lot. The calamari was fantastic. It's a nice place to chill with friends, too.
