There is a great selection of food, and the eggs benedict are the best I have eaten. With great service, a well-priced menu and a view to die for, it's well worth the dining experience!

The pork sausages are the best I've ever had. Yummo! The location is perfect. You can sit and see the beach and watch the surf or you can people watch. Coffee is very good and the service is very friendly
