Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very cute spot to grab a morning coffe. Amazing flat white coffee and the muffins were sooo delicious. Cheese toast as well! Very friendly people. We enjoyed eating our breakfast next to the sea. :-)

Tried a coffee after a beach run, service was quick at the time i went, usually large lines can form in the morning. Nice little seating nearby facing the beach. Worth a visit.

What’s not a rip off in Exmouth, from claiming the naval jetty scuba dive was actually on “ American soil” to Ningaloo Reef, basically brown rock and patches of brown coral. World heritage listing is simply a “ tourist franchise “ for tour operators to...exaggerate descriptions of area in order to rip off tourists. Drones used for aerial shots of beaches is a classic yet from the ground level all beaches look the same etc.More

Nice coffee , even nicer view. Skip the toastie- it’s pretty standard but muffins nice. Owners are slow but lovely - gives you more time to take in amazing view of beach. They also have music and chairs

Pleasant owners, very expensive coffee, semi tasting and expensive muffins, but a very nice venue indeed. He has it sewn up, perfect spot but needs improvement in price.

Meeting Naomi and her Dad Phill at the “short order local” food truck was a highlight of our trip. We went there 3 times because after trying their amazing coffee we wanted to try everything else on the menu including the freshly baked muffins, lemon...slice and bacon/egg/cheese breaky burgers. They are a very hospitable team and have a great yarn with you. You definitely need to make it for sunrise at least once on your vosit. The view is amazing over the sea and they have plenty of tables and chairs and music/a man singing on guitar later in the morning. They also do iced lattes for the super hot days and Oreo milkshakes. Make a trip to the beach instead of the busy shopping centre to visit these guys, you won’t regret it!More

Don’t miss grabbing a coffee and a bacon and egg roll if you are in Exmouth. Not only is the food and the coffee good, but you get to sit in the early morning sun and listen to a few tunes from the local busker....Very mellow way to start the day.More

Came down to Town Beach for the first time. The guy running it was very friendly. The coffee was good and hot. Had a guy on guitar singing my favourite relaxing tunes while I chilled out with my coffee. Great place.

The day doesn't start until after the first morning coffee and the challenge when on holidays is always, where's that first morning coffee going to come from. Our accomodation, Exmouth Escape Resort didn't have a morning cafe and only provided a kettle and instant coffee...so that wasn't going to turbo charge our day. Fortunately, the Short Order Local, parked at Town Beach just 3 minutes drive from us, provided our daily start. The Daughter and Father combination is there every morning from 6.30am onwards except for Sundays - their day off. They do all sort of coffees and a couple hot things plus some freshly baked stuff but for us, it was all about the coffee. Strong. Hot. Good. A great way to start the day with lovely chatty local people.More
