Good coffee and food. Great location - sit outside with your coffee and watch the boats and wildlife. The food is a bit expensive but it must be quite hard making a living here as Sandspit is a quiet spot for most of the year....More

They serve really nice coffee and are friendly, but the food is definitely not worth the money. They may need to walk over to the neighbouring Yacht Club Kitchen and try how chips or a toasted sandwich should really taste. Never again.
