The lobster and prawn omelette was awesome and so was the avo smash. Great coffee and service overlooking the water and it was open air, but they bring down the blinds if it’s windy.

Great coffee, great service and a great view. What a lovely spot for breakfast. We had bacon with poached eggs on ciabatta which was perfectly cooked and served with a smile. Will definitely go back.

This place is amazing for seafood lovers. I chose the 'Mixed Grill' and ended up with a very large plate of seafood including Bugs, Prawns, Scallops, SWquid and two types of fish fillets. Truly a seafood delight.

All I wanted was a tasty coffee and all I got was bad attitude and poor service. Surprisingly the Australian waitresses were the rudest... rate out of 100... 1.
