Came here for an enjoyable bayside brekkie and was not disappointed at all. Fast friendly service and a great atmosphere too.

Had breakfast here and was good. We ordered the smash avocado with poached egg. Service was good. Coffee was ok, not the best. This place has a great outlook to the marina. Very relaxing.

Very pleasant and lovely cafe on the waterfront. Road bikes there and Had 2 coffees and a gigantic piece of Apple crumble. Was the best ever with real apple layered 8 cm high with crumble on top. Only complaint is we went back to get it again on Monday and they were out. So sad.

We just had a coffee at the cafe. The large coffee comes in basically a bucket that is pretty nice. Coffee itself was not bad and the scenery was fairly relaxing.

We went with a group of Adults and a few kids. We had a really relaxed time with some very good dishes. Notably the Asian salad was worth a mention on its own. The kids were given a bread basket to feed the fish in the marina and then kept them self busy in the air con kids room. So... More

We were looking to have a brunch somewhere and wandered upon this place. It was quite busy but we managed to get a table. We both ordered the eggs benedict which was quite good and eggs were cooked perfectly and the smoothies were very good.

We stopped here for coffees,but really, we should have looked for somewhere else. The service was bad, we had to wait to order, as nobody was interested in taking our order. Then, when our iced coffees finally arrived, they were in plastic cups. And the drinks were only just passable. Definitely will not come back here.
