Stopped in here for brunch and loved it. Service was friendly and food came out in good time. Our vegetarian breakfast rolls were the best we had up here. The lady on the till taking orders was very friendly and helpful. Well done guys.

We had the best food in Cape Trib. My wife and I are vegans so sometimes we struggle with finding plant-based options when we travel to these exotic destinations but in Turtle Café they had amazing vegan options. Especially the burger and a nutritional falafel...bowl. The staff were super friendly. Big shout out to the Italian Couple the Fede's! Great morning coffee and cocktails as well!More

Called in here to have some lunch, it was 2pm and the English lady said the grill is closed, even though the cook was there and still could have easily made 2 hamburgers or something! Being a business owner, both these staff members just wanted...to knock off and go where every the staff go..... If it was my business I certainly would have made something for us. My wife ordered a cold wrap out of the fridge and it was disgusting. Not sure what month it was made, but half went in the bin, I wasnt game to eat anything after i saw the wrap. Lazy lazy staff, they certainly would have been sacked if they worked for me. We did stop at Thornton Beach where they have food all day and they were very friendly. My advice is eat here not at Cape Trib.More

Friendly and accommodating staff, go above and beyond for their customers. Food was fresh and delicious. If you’re in town or passing through highly recommend popping in for a bite to eat or a drink!

Really casual takeaway, with plenty of outdoor undercover tables for those eating in. Had breaky and lunch here, both were really really good. Hot, fresh and tasty. Sundays are a theme night, athough we didn't stay for dinner - we popped by quickly and it...was pumping with a great atmosphere. Ps. Best coffee in Cape Trib too so head here for your caffeine fix.More

Awesome little hybrid cafe / restaurant / bar with great food options. Locals seem to frequent this place - go on a Sunday night for Momo night (Nepalese dumplings) and live music. Excellent fish and chips, and great coffee. ALSO the free wifi works well...and is an absolute godsend out here where there is zero Telstra reception!More

Got lunch here before starting our Ocean Rafting tour. The food was nice and reasonably priced but the service was slow so not great if you're in a rush.
