Nice coffee here, but not quite hot enough for me personally I usually ask for it extra hot. Staff very friendly as a rule. Good variety of breakfast dishes & cakes/pastries. Nice sitting out on the esplanade watching the world go by.

I often pop in for a coffee and if I ever have time, something to eat. I love it, from the smiley staff, to the frothy coffee art! Worth a visit for sure.

Comfortable seating, quick service and good food and drink. I loved my ice coffee. We were able to rest here in comfort while the shops opened and we could take... More

Nice little restaurant with a good view to the esplanade park. You have to order and pay at the counter, and the food and drinks will be served at your table. Very friendly staff. Great menu and drinks list. We'll be back. Cheers Niels and Mary, Humpty Doo, NT, Australia, Down Under.

I have visited this cafe on many times since my friend likes going there for the price, also the view.. The way it works you order your meal at the counter, you pay for your meal, then they give you a number . Then you wait for the food to be served. very average food
