Fantastic breakfast/brunch. I asked for crispy bacon and it came out exactly how I like it - the nachos we ordered were cheesy and generous with the mince and the Big Breakfast was a generous portion for our male companion - great meals after our awesome kayak out to Donut Island. The service was welcoming and friendly and my coffee... More

Quite nice place and nice staff. Everything about this place is average including the food. Bacon and eggs basic. Nice without being anything to rave about. But not too expensive so worth a visit.

Vibes is well situated smack in the middle of main street, with indoor and outdoor seating. The staff are very nice and helpful and there's plenty of back up with prompt clearance of tables and delivery of food. Menu is a little limited but there's something for everyone, if a little limited for Vegans.

Thank Rodney M
