We were recommended to eat here by our motel, it was very busy but had plenty of staff on hand. Right opposite the beach, it was popular with locals & holiday makers alike. Once ordered the beverages & food arrived quickly. A good mixture of foods to choose from accomodating any taste. Painted in a multitude of colours you can't... More

Though it's a little bit pricey, it is very good value. The snit (which was big in size and actual chicken breast) with mushy gravy was exceptional. Even the salad was surprisingly good. Service was very good and friendly. And they sell beer.

Try the butterfish and the Pizza's. Both excellent and the Kids were well catered for. They are sufficiently large enough for 10-12 year olds. Waitress made our day. A young local that made us smile. The food does take time but they was to be expected as made rush of people from the beach across the road

It's quaint, cute and retro, but does a fantastic brekky as the crowd attests to. The coffee is good as well. Recommend the Eggs Benedict, was gorgeous

great service, lovely generous meals. We did have one small issue with a meal, but that was quickly rectified for us. love the decorations inside, to make it a quirky interesting place. Great location for a walk on the beach.

This is a great little place opposite Moana beach. Walking distance from the Caravan Park. There's indoor and outdoor seating (covered and uncovered). You can even bring your well behaved legged friend to join you outdoors if you like:) If you sit outside you'll be able to watch the sun set over the water. Bring sunglasses! It's beautiful but glarey!... More

Although I have lived in the general area all of my Adult Life I have never eaten at Deep Blue Cafe before. Please do not let the exterior fool you, the inside is a bit of an eclectic layout we were seated in a little outdoor although shaded alcove. Service was fast and friendly and the young staff did a... More

Ordered waffles, eggs florentine, salmon benedict. 3 coffees. All meals came out cold, no hollandaise sauce on either egg breakfast as per menu. Two slightly warm waffles, no butter, minimal maple syrup. Asked for butter for waffles, came hard not spreadable. Coffees tepid, weak. Waitress offered 3 coffee vouchers. Not good enough. Should not have had to pay for all... More

We are sorry on this occasion your meals were served lukewarm rather than hot. As all meals were eaten we understandably found it difficult to issue a full refund, however if our server was notified at the meal check we would have been happy to replace all meals immediately. More

We visited Deep Blue Cafe as a party of four on new years day 2017. We were driving around the southern beachside suburbs trying to find anywhere decent that was open on a public holiday and stumbled across Deep Blue. When we arrived the place was PACKED, and with no reservation we fully expected not to be able to get... More
