We waited for over 5 minutes at about 1.30pm at the front counter wanting to order lunch but no-one appeared to take our order. We finally left.More

The Cray Burger is amazing! I’ve never experienced anyone presenting crayfish in a bun - and the bun was exceptional too! Delicious and so very appropriate whilst glancing across the bay towards Perth, surrounded by Quokkas and sunshine. The coffee was good too! Great service!

After many years of waiting cray fish at a reasonable price. Delicious cray dogs for $20 First class coffee and nice setting overlooking the square. Staff more than friendly great improvement to years in the past.

They call it a Cray Dog, that undersells what is a generous serving of WA Crayfish with sensible amounts of chipotle warmed dressing and some leaf. Lobster Rolls are all the rage in London my dear, this one beats most of them.

The Lane is the perfect spot for great coffee in a relaxed ‘Rotto’ atmosphere. Service is friendly and efficient.

I decided to take the family here for breakfast because I wanted to try a cray dog and I’m glad I did because it was delicious! The crayfish was a bit tough, but it had a good jalapeño hit and was creamy, perfect start to...the day. Also, as everyone else suggests, great coffee!More

I have been visiting this Cafe for a couple of years as I’m a regular visitor to Rotto. ALWAYS a Great Coffee (weak flat white) and ALWAYS a happy friendly smile to start your day. (If your here for a couple of days they even...remember your name and your order). Great food as well (Breakfast wraps) worth a visit for the coffee lover.More
