Jerry was very flexible, easy to deal with and nothing was ever too much trouble. The food Jerry provided at our wedding was excellent and the service was great. Would thoroughly recommend Ponds Cafe and Jerry for any wedding or function!

We were staying at Darlington Beach and it was a bonus to have somewhere where you could eat out for all meals - except dinner early in the week after school holidays.

Jerry, Diane and the team also hosted our Team Dinner - over 60 people. It was brilliant. Amazing value and quality food. We can't thank them enough. They even provided a last minute birthday...

We used this cafe several times during January for breakfast, lunch and dinners. I think their breakfasts are excellent value,well presented and tasty. Dinners, while not an extensive menu had fresh, well prepared meals that were very satisfying. The cafe is fully licensed and has a reasonable offering of wines and beers.

Reasonable coffee and tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not the best food we've ever had (poached eggs were a bit overdone) but certainly not the worst. The pancakes were good for breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Handy location as there's nothing else at Arrawarra other than the 3 caravan parks.
