We stopped here for an early lunch as it offered the shade that is not available at most of the other cafes at Kingston Foreshore. It wasnt particularly busy but the tables hadn't been cleared from previous patrons. After sitting for 5 minutes we had...More

Tables were not being cleared, only about 12 patrons but no one appeared to be serving. We cleared the table after waiting for ages, the girl at the bar seemed uninterested. When someone else walked in and asked for service a waiter came out, walked...More
