Small place, but quirky and interesting decor. Brilliant staff. We had pancakes and milkshake for breakfast. Pancakes were awesome, served with piles of strawberries, blueberries and bananas and maple syrup! Milkshake was probably the best Milkshake I've had, super thick and ice creamy! Had to get it to take away in the end, but they happily transferred it to a paper cup. Ate here at about 10am and wasn't hungry again until about 9pm!

In Brighton for the last day of the school holidays with the kids (10 & 12) did my usual trick of hitting TripAdvisor for a lunch venue close by. We had walked from the marina alongside Volks railway and played Crazy golf along the way. Compass Point Eatery was only 300m from us but the fact it was sitting at #1 Restaurant in Brighton nearly deterred me from suggesting this as an option. Thankfully I mentioned it to my wife. We walked in and had the warmest of welcomes. Seated immediately and offered drinks from an amazing array of milkshakes and nostalgic American drinks. The menu is small but options for all tastes from The Meatloaf Hoagie to the Vegan Sub. I wouldn't come here for a fine dining experience but wow! Everything that was presented was fab! The small team are obviously customer service/care prioritised. Food top notch and we found it difficult to leave!

To Joe and Alex, you are doing great! I know this is only our first visit but we will be back, I hope that the menu changes regularly utilising great local produce.

Thank 330robm

Hi Rob,

We both want to thank you for taking the time to not only use Tripadvisor as a means to find us but for also writing taking time out to write this review.

We're so happy you enjoyed the food and milkshakes. We just recently added 2 new sandwiches and a wrap but Will continue to make our staple sandwiches and always use local produce so props to you for even mentioning it because we should all support each other.

Please visit us again when your in town and we're happy you enjoyed our little eatery.

Kind regards,
Alex & Joe

We were two families of four visiting for the first time. Wonderful place and very friendly welcome. Our friends had just come back from 4 weeks in the USA and they said the pancakes from the compass point were the best they had had! The food was very tasty and we were very well looked after. Highly recommended.
