Port Campbell is a funny place... but if you turn off the main road to the beach there is this place with the best view... Staff were friendly and food was great! If you stop in port fairy you must go there for quality food!

Ate breakfast here. Menus are prepared with good healthy eating in mind. Service was good, staff enjoy their time here and proud of what they are serving. Coffee (s) are amoung the best you will taste, served in huge cups. Price for meals acceptable. The older record player bashing out all types of music was a nice touch!

We enjoyed the breakfast here. Menu was interesting and the rice porridge was delicious. I missed having a coffee though as the downside was they didn't have decaff coffee. We sat inside as it was blowy but the outside tables would be lovely if the weather suited. Good place to eat! Probably the best place for breakfast in Port Campbell... More

A great cafe restaurant located on the Port Campbell foreshore with friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Food is fresh and delicious and this joint has a great view out to the waves washing up on a small beach. If the weather is good, you can sit in the outdoor area and feel the cool ocean breeze. Bonus is free... More

We ate lunch here on a hot day and it was perfect. The food was fresh and tasty, the view to die for, excellent value for money and the service friendly and attentive. If you feel like something other than stoggy food, as appeared to be the case in many of the other cafe's in Port Campbell, then come here!

Had lunch here and really enjoyed their chorizo and avocado salad; my wife had avocado smash on sour dough and loved it. Both very tasty and the fresh juice cocktail type things were great too. Service was very friendly and the view of the sea is lovely. All for fairly reasonable prices (although the juices are pricey).

Lovely cafe directly on the seafront, all 3 of us had different meals and they were all delicious! Having been travelling round Australia for a few weeks this was definitely the best breakfast by far

We had to wait more than an hour for a simple toast and they didn't follow the order in sequence. It was a messy and disorganized service. Avoid this place if you are here for a stop-off

Our guests from Scotland enjoyed a hearty breakfast on their Great Ocean Road visit. Friendly staff, even though very busy, were attentive to the whims of our visitors as they enjoyed their eggs and bacon! Great coffee too.

Thank geraldq
