I have never...tasted bacon so nice and I finished the lot .Good obliging staff and I will call in again .More

Dont bother ordering the prawn linguine as there were 2 big prawns and the rest was pasta and canned tomatoes with a sprinkling of capers no olives and $36 later. Very, disappointing dollars . Feedback fell on deaf ears with waitress

Don’t bother. Buy your coffee down in Coolangatta before coming up the hill. Staff had unhelpful attitude, or maybe just dumb....I know it was a busy Sunday morning but not helpful at all.. With one barista only on. After I asked the cashier if I...can change my Coffee to an iced coffee as it was 15 min wait for a coffee; she said no. She’s already put it through on cash register??? So I can’t change my order at all? No. Wow. No flexibility. I don’t think she knew how too. Or she couldn’t be bothered. The prices are exorbitant. The coffee was average at best. Takeaway cups were hot to hold. With very limited menu. Save yourself the hassleMore

Baaaaaad food matched by the baaaad attitudes. So sad. Used to be so good. Unfortunately a good view just isn’t enough these days :(

Obviously trade off their location. Received one coffee after 10 minutes (no other customers at that point) and had to ask for the second coffee 3 times. No apology given when it finally arrived well after the first coffee was had. Service was both rude...and incompetent - a deadly combination.More

We came here because of the vegan options advertised on the menu, the location and the fact that it was a lovely sunny day. Sadly the food was very disappointing. Very bland, tasteless, oily, and it really did not look that that appetising. The vegan...tempura veg came out with no dipping sauce and no garnish, the pita bread came with baba ghanoush, the falafel pocket pita was filled with some cabbage, cucumber, tomato and onions with baba ghanoush. We won't be coming back here again.More

Worst service ever. I order cappuccino large the gave me a small. The bring the food and I had to wait for cutlery for around 8 minutes, at that point the food was already cold. When I paid a expensive breakfast I don’t expect a...Mac Donald’s service.More

We ordered 2 iced coffees and 1 milkshake, had to wait almost 45 minutes and it wasn't even busy. The iced coffees where loaded with ice cream which was very unexpected for someone that doesn't use sugar at all. The 3 drinks cost more than...$25, although there menu board said $6.5 for the iced coffees and $8.5 for the thick milkshake.More

We went as a small group last Saturday - good service, great food, not cheap, but all in all a pretty reasonable breakfast. We went back the following day (Sunday) and it was like walking into an entirely different cafe. We were shown promptly to...a table, with a reasonable view, and had some water and a few coffees to start. Then the trouble set in. We had our order taken, with the warning that the wait could be about 25 mins. Oh, that 25 mins was even close! At the 45 min mark, we were asking about the progress of our meal - "they are plating them up right now!! (obviously code for they lost the order and are now desperately trying to work out what we ordered). Another 20 mins later, still no food. By now, even the other customers were starting to wonder why they were being fed and we were still waiting. Eventually, part of the order came out, a small delay, then the rest - oner hour and 5 minutes after our order was taken. In the end, there was not even an apology from the staff - in fact, after our meals arrived, they pointedly ignored us until we paid and left. No-one came by to ask how our meals were. Not even a manager to complain to. This is a cafe for visitors who drop in, have a meal, and then leave never to come back. It is the 'fair weather friend' cafe. But, this is not a cafe for locals. You need the locals to be able to survive through winter when the visitors aren't here. These locals won't be going back!More

Great Location with ocean views. Bit hot sitting upstairs in summer unless there's a breeze, but still a lovely dining area. Downstairs is really nice & stylish & a little cooler for summer. Fresh juices & cocktails were great. Our food was very enjoyable.
