This absolutely aptly named cafe is exactly as advertised...eccentric art, funky outdoor furniture, and a crazy melange of foods and activities. But the food is EGGceptional, and often organic, and everyone there was wonderfully friendly, accommodating and wonderful. We ate al fresco one night and then did take out two more times...and were never disappointed. Their frank, "keeping it real"... More

Very nice food - burgers, salads, etc - but all done in a very special way. Friendly service and a pleasant garden to sit out at. Ice creams are top quality too.

This place is set amongst a sculpture garden, with many works on sale. The art would have to be described as naive, but it did have a certain novel appeal, although the price tags were exhorbitant. The menu was described by our local companion as never bad, so we ordered our selection. My wife had eggs benedict with salmon and... More

I had the scallop entree which were perfectly cooked, still translucent and with a tasty sauce with a hint of Pernod on a corn fritter. We both the fish... More

We had morning tea at this lovely cafe. The garden and art works add to the charm. The coffee was excellent and the carrot cake was fantastic. However the slice was enormous and could easily be shared amongst two.

The place is quirky, the staff friendly and the food and coffee was great. I order the fish and chips which was lovely. Another ordered the quiche and other... More

We went for coffee and cake in the afternoon and returned for dinner in the evening. Some of the food was delicious and some a little disappointing and a little over priced for the evening meal. For a cake and coffee experience well worth a visit and great value. They also have a deli out the back with a great... More

Called here for refreshments while walking from Ferry Landing to Cooks Beach. We had iced coffees and shared a huge slice of carrot cake. Really delicious.

We ate breakfast here and loved it so much we went back for lunch. The food was simple yet fresh, tasty and interesting. It was well priced and good sized portions. There was plenty of seating both outside and inside. Great location just opposite the gorgeous beach.

We were staying just down the road at Flaxmill Accommodation and we were recommend this place for dinner - very pleased we visited as it was right up our street! Very relaxed friendly service and yummy food, make sure you book in the evening as people were being turned away when we were there. We loved it so much that... More
