I was showing a friend around the area and popped into the Fat Goose. Have stopped by before for coffee and pastries and it's always been pleasant enough. Today, not so. On the menu they have a Beetroot and Goats Cheese salad. It presented nicely and tasted awful! The beetroot was out of a can, three measly pieces of goats cheese with lashings of rocket all drowned in the most acidic lip-smacking dreadful vinaigrette. Complete slop! Surely they could do better than that! $16.50 for absolute rubbish. To top it off they got our teas orders mixed up, and my tiny pot of green tea had the equivalent of a whole plantation thrown in the pot. Antioxidant overload! Careless and yes, insulting.....particularly when they asked me how my meal was and I told them. Sweetie, if you don't want the feedback don't ask!

We have been to the fat goose many times in the past few years and have enjoyed the food. However, we dined at lunch yesterday and the food was terrible. Sausage rolls reheated in a microwave which were cold, tough and inedible. The pastries were poorly made, stale and tasteless. The coffee was cold etc. We complained to the staff, who struggled their shoulders and were completely uninterested. Obviously a place trading on its reputation and little care about losing regular custom.

You go to the Fat Goose for the food, not the view, as it is tucked away in a side-street in Hardys Bay. We've enjoyed the pastries here on previous occasions, but we were disappointed this time - but it was late in the day and perhaps they were past their prime in the humid climate. Despite this we still think this is the place for coffee and cake/pastry in Hardys Bay, if you don't want a view, and we'll return.

Nice cafe with helpful staff.
There is an excellent bakery in house where bread is made daily.
The coffee is good, but not so great that if like a stronger taste, you can rely on getting a coffee with a single shot.
