“Great coffee right on the beach”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Took our elderly parents here for coffee. Parked steps away & enjoyed watching the swimmers on the beach you literally step onto the sand from the cafe. The coffee was great too

“A big thumbs down. ”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Top location, nothing to rave about. Staff are rude, struggle to get a smile. Coffee was weak and not what I ordered.
Pick up your game beach bums.
Won't be coming back..

“Excellent food in great locations!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Had a couple breakfasts and lunch at Beach Bums over the Queen's Birthday long weekend. The hot cakes with berries was delicious! Chicken panini was also fantastic. The hot chocolates were also nice. And to top off the great food, the views are just fantastic with the extra special treat of seeing dolphins! Highly recommend this cafe!

Best view and coffee in town. Whales, dolphins, sun and surf, it's got it all. Easy parking with friendly staff.
