My husband I were passing and decided to have a coffee. We sat at one of the tables which are over the water. We couldn't believe the size and number of big Bream swimming around. They were so entertaining. Our coffees were promptly delivered by the friendly staff to our table and were excellent. So nice to have a great... More

This cafe has a lovely location. Dog friendly on the covered deck which is sheltered from the rain. Just had coffee which was ok. Hour gap in full food service between breakfast menu finishing and lunch menu starting is an archaic business model.

So good first time for brunch we went back two days later for lunch. Friendly service. Fabulous spot even on hot day because of breezes. Loved the food.

Service was dismal. Food and value worse. Beautiful location but not worth visiting. In a party of 5, two of us ordered toast with mushrooms and tomatoes and I ordered a large coffee. When a small coffee was brought and I mentioned that I had asked for a large the server walked off without a single word. My coffee finally... More

Awesome-awesome people. The whole place is not over rated not like the cafe's in Sydney. I'm looking forward to my next visit in Forster which is the next long weekend, and might stay there for good.

We hired the larger pontoon boat for 1/2 day. Whilst not the prettiest on the water, she was the most reasonable & served the same purpose as the others nearby. Great friendly staff & a thoroughly enjoyable day on the lake. Coffee pretty good as well ☕️

It doesn't take that much for a welcoming smile when you dine out! Sure it's the same old tourist coming through but it's also your livelihood! Customer service manual needs updating here however it is naturally pleasant right on the river. Food is ordered at the counter and delivered to your table number. They have numbers on the menu for... More
