Went to Nice cafe just after Easter. We tried before but It was just to busy to get a table. No problem this time. Service was friendly and quick. After we were seated little bottles of water were served (free of charge). The breakfast menu had a good variety of choices. 2 of us had the scrambled eggs and the... More

We enjoyed a pleasant breakfast here on a Saturday morning. Servings were generous and good quality food. Coffees and service were good enough but nothing special. By the time we'd upspecc'd our breakfasts, few coffees and a shake the price was just over $80 for two. This is probably a 3.5 rounded up.

Food is good, however; due to it been busy the food took some time to arrive to the table. Portions are big and service is good. I would return!

We visited for breakfast on the recommendation of a local. The 1st patrons of the day, it wasn't busy at all. The cafe is above street level, so you get nice views between the trees over the bay. A great mix of options from several eggs Benedict choices, smashed avocado, pancakes, cereals & usual breakfast things. The man serving was... More

Went here for breakfast with my partner. Food was beautiful, I had the Eggs Blackstone with bacon. Was to die for! Meal size was incredible. Next time I will be ordering the 1/2 size! We used a voucher from the entertainment book.

Breakfast for 4 out on the balcony. We had various combinations of the eggs Benedict and a pancake stack. Food was high quality and well presented. Good table service. Overall an easy and enjoyable experience.

So good we enjoyed two consecutive breakfasts at this beautifully located Café. Excellent Chef with his food presentation. Only suggestion would be to have more staff on at peak periods.

We were a little ambivalent about Nice having new owners and we prayed nothing would change so when we returned for breakfast today, our expectations were not high. They (very sensibly) have kept the basic menu and why wouldn't you? (no point fixing something that ain't broken!) But they have added the "specials" on a separate menu and I was... More

A fantastic breakfast! Best eggs benedict I've had in a long time. The chefs take their time with the meals and it shows. Good service and good coffee. A must for breakfast in Nelson Bay

My wife and I eat here every time we visit the bay. As a self proclaimed Eggs Benny connoisseur, I am yet to find a worthy opponent. Highly recommended to anyone that enjoys really good food.
