Hard to find a good place with decent GF options. This is it! The staff are great, the menu caters for GF items. The burgers are to die for. Try the GF works, you couldnt tell! The soy chai latte is so so good. No wonder theres a queue out the door. The only problem is the finish about 3pm,... More

Beachside Café that serves very nice and simple burgers. Coffee was excellent too. Tables and chairs are next to the beach, you order & pay inside then they bring your meal too you. I had Chicken Caeser burger and it was tender with fresh salad ingredients. Looking around all other meals looked good, with the meals being finished by everyone... More

Beautiful outlook and very nice food. Visited with my partner and two children on a Saturday afternoon in the school holidays. The food was reasonably priced and the service was quick given they were very busy. Staff very friendly. Would go again.

A really nice place, located right next to a small beach. Very picturesque and welcoming. The food is good (they go really generous on bacon!) and wait staff is friendly. Definitely a good choice for a lazy brekky.

Had breakfast here. It was extremely busy, we couldn't believe how quick the service was. To top of the service the food and coffee were great.

Easy food for a reasonable price. Great customer service and amazing location. Stopped here on the drive up north and spent an hour enjoying the view and then a walk on the beach before climbing back in the car. Will stop in again.

It's hard to review this place properly. It's barely more than the average beach kiosk, but it is more. The views are great and it's all very casual. the staff do well with coping with the pace. The tables are a shambles and placed in the natural walkways, which is slightly annoying. The food is OK, but they are using... More
