Well priced Italuan/Australian fare served with lovely coffee (thats not bitter!). Its a great view and a nice place to meet up for a sunday morning brekkie (especially if the weather is good ) Its certainly busy here for a sunday morning.

Awful, awful and awful - that's one awful for each of the meals that we ordered. We had three different meals and not one was finished. Very poor quality food and presentation. Complete waste of money. I cannot recommend this place at all - except that it is in a lovely location. Will put this one down to experience.

Waited 30 minutes for a pre-made wrap, then when confronted about the time that it took I was yelled and sworn at. There was a family of four who were served after me who promptly received all four of their burgers before I, the person who was served first, received a wrap which had to be taken out of the...

Went for breakfast and vey much enjoyed the avocado and tomato drizzled with pesto and walnuts. We have avocado and tomato at most of our favourite breakfast places but this was fantastic with the combination of different flavours. Very well priced and lovely location across from the beach.

Everywhere was so busy at balmoral but managed to get a seat here, so we took it. Had a pulled pork burger which was a bit bland and dry but satisfied my hunger. Ice coffee was ok. Really wanted a juice but they had run out for the day. Staff were friendly even though so busy.

But for one thing, this could have been fantastic. A friend and I stopped here for lunch after a long walk and we were hungry. The service was friendly, and the food looked amazing when it came out, but the pulled pork burger I had been so looking forward to was unfortunately lacking in pork - there was just a... More

We were hungry and looking for a place to eat when we stumbled across this restaurant on the Esplanade. The fish and chips were actually quite delicious and we ended up ordering more. The food came pretty quickly and the service was quite good. Would stop by here again the next time we are at Balmoral.

Family of three called in for lunch on a very busy weekend. Service was quite good as was the fish and chips ordered by one member, whilst a chicken wrap was also quite tasty. The smoked salmon wrap was not good and was left uneaten. Coffee was quite good. Nothing spectacular.

This is our regular coffee stop when walking on the Esplanade. Service is always very friendly and coffees are excellent. Muffins are very good and they make a very good hamburger. Sitting outside on a nice day and meeting friends is a very social experience.

This has to be the best coffee on Balmoral and the personal service from Louisa makes the place run smoothly. The fruit salad tastes like real fruit and the toasted ham, pro alone and tomato panini kept us going over the last weekend on Autumn. When the rest are overpriced noise boxes, try this little beauty.

Thank mastermuzz
