We'd been told to try this cafe as the location was outstanding. We weren't dissapointed as its right on Gnarabup Beach. Sitting in the afternoon sun and looking out across the bay was just gorgeous. The food was nice, with mostly salads, burgers and sandwiches. You can pop in for a coffee or a meal. I will defintately go back when in Margaret River.

Loved this cafe! Met friends here for breakfast and ended up staying five hours! The food was fantastic....both for breakfast and our subsequent lunch. Location is incredible...we wandered off for the odd swim/paddle in the sea and later sat back in the couches and watched the free whale watching. Iced coffees were also fantastic. Staff were a little slow to clear tables but we put that down to the fact that they hadnt been open long. They also had run out of a few things on the menu but I think that was due to them being really busy on a beautiful long weekend. We all loved it though and headed back the following morning for breakfast again.

I'd scouted out several potential breakfast venues for a long weekend trip to Margaret River. I'd sent an e-mail to Gnarabar Bistro and Restaurant to ask if they serve breakfast...they advised they did not, but told me about their new cafe right on the beach -The White Elephant at Gnarabup Bay, which apparently opened just a few months ago.

This is an unassuming, casual alfresco cafe overlooking the beach with some fabulous views of the ocean. The day we were there was nice and cool, yet this didn't discourage that most obnoxious Australian winged pest, the black fly. The cafe seems to be a popular place for surfers and dog owners.

My spouse ordered the Eggs Benedict, which he said were some of the best he's had in WA. I went for the scones with cream and jam, of which the waitress enthusiastically approved - they were excellent - two large scones with a very generous serving of cream and jam. Delicious. The flat whites were good too, the atmosphere relaxing and friendly.

This is a good find and a much appreciated addition to the area.
