“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Brilliant food and fantastic views. We were enjoying our eggs benedict for breakfast when a pod of dolphins started feeding on the bait fish right up on the shore.

“Great location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

I was a little disappointed after ordering the prawn cutlets, to see they were pre bought and frozen. The cafe is in a beachside suburb, so I would expect to eat fresh seafood here.
And while they offer gluten free food, there is a large chance for cross contamination, as they cook the food using same toaster etc as non gluten free food. The staff were very helpful though.

“Great view, nice brekkie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had brekkie at Beach Bums on Good Friday.

The place was absolutely packed, but our food came very quickly. Hubby was quite happy with his eggs, the coffee was good and my banana smoothie was delicious.

It's not the best place I've ever visited, but enjoyable enough and reasonably priced.

Great view over the beach too.

“Yummy with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Have eaten here for breakfast, brunch, lunch and snacks over a few years and always found fair prices, friendly staff and a great outlook! Butterscotch sauce with pancakes and bananas definitely a favourite ! Accommodating for nut allergies ( let me check packaging of some products).

“Good Location but service is terrible.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Being a local you know the places to go, the view is perfect but food and service is terrible. Filled with incompetent employees that are unprofessional and sour. I now avoid Beach bums there is are so many flys buzzing around your food. It's just disappointing.
