My wife and I visited Dunsborough recently, only for a couple of days. The first day we were there we had breakfast at Goanna Cafe and Gallery.
It is in a beautiful Australian bush setting with quirky artwork inside and out. There is a bush walk that takes you out the back of the cafe, which was quite pleasant while we waited for our breakfast.
We ordered the Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine. My wife was pregnant at the time so we mentioned that she would not be able to eat some of things on the menu. Our host Ali was more than helpful and understanding, offering alternatives and making us feel quite at home. Ali also made an amazing Flat White coffee. The food was fantastic, you could tell that everything had been sourced well and was super fresh. It was well seasoned and the portions were more than generous.
Although we only had one more morning in the area went back the next morning as the menu sounded so good, and the service had been so friendly. This time I had the Spanish Breakfast and my wife the Pancakes. So often a restaurant will impress one day and then disappoint the next, not Goanna! You could tell that the owners, Ali and Duncan took real pride in what they were serving and the food was fantastic.
We did manage to make it for lunch at a couple of wineries while we were in the area, but found ourselves wishing we had made our way back to Goanna Cafe to see what they had to offer for lunch!
In short, I think you would be hard pressed to find a better breakfast in Australia.
