I've been a fan of white elephant since the beginning. Such an awesome setting. The standards at white elephant have dropped over a period of time and my breakfast yesterday was really quite average. The coffee was really ordinary and if I wasn't at such a beautiful location I would not be putting up with it. My eggs were ok... More

The view is out of this world!!! Food is overall good. But dining had to be quick as there were a lot of flies.

View from here is breathtaking. I cant vouch for the food as we only had coffee but I'd love to return here and soak in the atmosphere. Definitely worth a look.

We visited the White Elephant Cafe on a sunny Saturday morning and were lucky to grab two bench seats near the railing. This place can get quite busy. The view is spectacular across the bay, beautiful sandy beach and clear water. The breakfast menu has a large variety, and is priced from around $12 up to $22. Sides are extra.... More

Visited for breakfast, arrived 7.30am and got in before the crowd (just!). Location is fantastic, relaxed vibe and clean, modern facility. Coffee was amazing and our meals were really good. If I had to nitpick I'd say only negative was that the avocado on one of the meals was a little stingy in serving size. But other than that, nothing... More

Called to reserve a table and was told no need as there is plenty of seating. Drove 40 mins from Busselton to get there and the car park was full and not one spare seat. Finally snatched a dirty table to be told there would be a forty minute wait for two coffees. See ya.
