A big thanks to Nathan and the staff for a wonderful lunch today. The food was excellent, as was the service. Staff were friendly and helpful and such a lovely location overlooking the creek. Looking forward to our next visit!

Nice location, ruined by terrible service. Such a pity because it could be more than a kebab bar serving burnt coffee. At least the beer was cold.

For a relaxed family meal while watching paddle boarders this cafe is hard to beat. Not a great range of meals but the food is well priced and family friendly.
