“Nice meal, great iced coffee and cakes!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We went here three times while staying at the Oaks Plaza Pier. The first night we had dinner. It took a little while to get served, as there was only one guy trying to serve the whole café. The meals were standard café fare and reasonable. The view from the café is great, it looks right out over the beach.
We also came for morning tea a couple of times. Again, their staff seem to be under the pump, there was one lady who was trying to take orders and make drinks by herself (someone was in the kitchen too) But the wait was worth it. Their iced coffee is divine!! And their selection of cakes is mouth watering. We had the chocolate cake twice - it is very rich so share it!

“Breakfast by the beach”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We were staying at the Oaks Pier and decided for a late breakfast. After walking in and seating at the table by the window, it took ten minutes to be acknowledged and the table wiped and cleaned from the previous customers.
No cutlery provided, when we ordered at the bar, it took a long time for the waitress to process the order on her computer and I wasnt sure if she had fallen asleep.
Sitting back down and looking forward to a lovely relaxing brekfast, we almost ran out of conversation waiting for the food, which arrived minus the coffee. The waitress apolagised and said it would be right over. The food was ok, but nothing special. We had finished eating and then the coffee arrived much later.
Not the best coffee we had tasted (even left half of it) and the waitress said she would remove the coffee from our bill - not sure how as it was prepaid. when we left the waitress said bye, but never mentioned the removal of the coffee.
Its the resteraunt choice to provide this level of service and its our choice to take our seven family members elsewhere tomorrow for breakfast
