We come to Forster for 1 week every year and this is our go to place for breakfast or a snack. The food is always amazing and they just keep getting better. A lot of places lose their quality once they have the clientele but not this place. They strive to please no matter how busy they are. There are... More

Had a great lunch there, great ambience overlooking the lake. Friendly staff. Good portions. Two areas both overlooking the lake, one outside on the wharf and one inside sheltered.

The seafood was fresh and the coffee really good. The staff were very friendly and café was busy with holiday makers. I suggest to book as most tables were reserved or get in early as lunch is served from 11.30 am.

Went for breaky here. What a lovely spot it is, you are over the water. Service was fast and courteous. Breakfast was ample and hot. Good range on the menu, and very reasonable priced.

Paradise Cafe and Marina is built out over the Lake. A great place to enjoy coffee, brunch or lunch on a nice day. Outside, on the deck, see the fish swimming under. Inside if the weather is less kind. Relaxed, friendly, atmosphere. And the food is tasty too.

We had a coffee & cake, just after 10am, while our boat was made ready by a helpful young man, who then gave us a thorough briefing, with good advice on where to go for a look around Wallis Lake with a picnic for lunch. The boat was in good condition, and the track suggested, worked a treat. We had... More
