The food had no flavor, was cold and average. This was our favourite cafe. We are big coffee snobs, and the coffee has changed big time. It tastes like cardboard! To hot, burnt milk and half hour waits for everything.

Clean, modern, spacious, toilets inside, help yourself table water and glasses. Seating outside or inside. A fantastic long bench table along the back wall of the café with great water views. Staff were friendly and our cappuccinos were just perfect. Plenty of fresh home made muffins and slices to choose from for morning tea. A great experience in a great café!

It’s just one of those cafes that you walk in and feel welcome. The staff are great friendly and courteous always.

The coffee is superb a nice strong blend made every time by the barista. The breakfast menu is great the harissa beans in particular a fav.

When I asked my grand daughter where she wanted to go for lunch she immediately said "The Waterboy" Okay I thought whatever to make her happy. So off we went, well I have to say the place is nice, really nice! Lovely atmosphere kitchen in the middle always makes you feel like they are handling the food correctly, because you can see them :) Nice menu, fresh and clean I like to call it, we ordered the egyption eggs and chicken and noddles YUM YUM really nice meals, easy to eat and you feel like your looking after your health while you do it.
