Great place for lunch or weekend breakfast.
The fresh barramundi was absolutely delicious.
Relaxed atmosphere overlooking the sparkling waters of Berowra.

Stopped in just to check out the ferry. Decided to have a snack while we could. Fresh donuts, banana bread, coffee, and freshly squeezed juice. All perfect. All meals cooked while you wait. So if they're busy, a wait there will be.
Will be back for a cooked lunch next visit.
