This cafe was quite simply perfect in all areas. Tumby Bay is a beautiful little town and a must stop destination on your way to Lincoln. The food and the service at the cafe would compete with the very best in any city in the...World. Right up there with the best food we had during our entire stay and complimented with a homely level of service. Each of the 4 meals we ordered were a winner! Really did leave us with great memories of our entire holiday.More

Went for coffee in the motning - had pastries. It was all so delicious we went back for lunch. That was a surprise - such perfect plating up followed by delicious flavours. Worth moving to Tumby Bay just for such excellent food. The staff were...very pleasant and although it was very busy there was not a long wait for our meals. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.More

An amazing French Cafe just off the road to Port Lincoln. Grace and Marvin have developed a gem of place on the coast there, serving an excellent coffee and amazing food. We had an Apple Turnover and a Croissant... they are as good as the...one you would find in a top bakery in Paris. We also had a yummy smashed avo that came on a nicely dressed plate. Thank you for a fantastic brunch that will stay in our memories for long.More

Small cafe, but totally amazing food. Also really friendly and helpful service. They made an iced coffee which wasn't on the menu for my stepdaughter. I had the Beef Cheeks Benedict and my partner had the Croque Monsieur. Both were superlative. Amazing flavours, and perfectly...cooked. We came up from Port Lincoln to visit Tumby Bay. I'd definitely drive back just for either of those dishes. They had run out of croissants, which my stepdaughter was keen to have, but is probably testament to their quality. We'll come earlier (as we arrived not long before they were closing) and ring ahead for croissants.More

Lovely coffee and perfect pastries. We couldn't believe we could find such a great cafe outside of Paris. Not the cheapest place but worth every cent if you enjoy a good coffee, pastries and cakes.

We went for lunch today. The food was very delicious, the presentation was beautiful and the food is reasonably priced. Friendly and welcoming staff. The cafe was busy and we were glad that we had booked.

I’d book for this place. It’s excellent. Happily there are a few good eats to be had in the lower peninsula. This is the French standout.
