If you’re looking for a quick pit stop with some coffee and dessert, you found the right place. The macadamia nut pie was solid but a bit too sweet for me... they also have a great view!

I've been here about 6 times in the last 4 years. The view is stunning, but the food is just average. They have good menu choices and the desserts alone are worth the drive.

We enjoyed this wonderful roadside cafe for our first breakfast of 2018. The menu was varied and had something for each of my picky children. The view was of course amazing. The service was great. Nice way to start out the new year.

I am a coffee connoisseur, having been in Italy, Spain, Costa Rica roasting beans and so on... I have a pretty good understanding on how coffee should taste. This place is far from having even decent coffee. Also, the lady at the register was super...More
