The most perfect position. You may have to wait for a table iin peak times. The early morning swimmers enjoy their Coffee there and so many people meet there and enjoy a burger or whatever. Quick turnover, view the best - enjoy

We have eaten breakfast here several mornings during our week in Forster. Really good food, great service and very good coffee. Lovely sitting outside watching the waves on the main beach. I think the new roof over the area is a great addition.
