We stopped here for a quick lunch with Mr 2.5year old. It's a lovely little setting away from the street with an awesome didgeridoo player. It's a nice little cafe with lunch options ranging from burgers, salads, toasted sandwiches, quiche and Turkish breads with a yummy juice and smoothie list. Our food was not necessarily special but fresh and tasty.... More

Just behind the shops in Shady Lane, Indoor/Outdoor eating in the shade. Great for snacking or lunching and the smoothies are to die for. Friendly staff.

This cafe is literally a shady oasis in Chinatown. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was prompt. Not highly visible from the street, but worth looking for.

Enjoyed a flat white here with a group totalling 4. Some had juice, watermelon was particularly good. Staff helpful and service was quick. Fans working above the sofa area made it cooler.

Food was ok. Waited quite a while for it to arrive however. And the cake was stale couldn't eat. Requested a refund.. We got eaten alive outside by miggies. Was quite uncomfortable. But breakfast was nice. And coffee

We had fruity smoothies and shared a delicious blueberry muffin. The café has plenty of shaded outside seating at tables and on squishy sofas, and is perfectly located for people-watching as people browse the nearby shops and stalls. Service was a bit on the slow side but that's fine if you're not in a hurry. Well worth a pitstop.

Thank TalbotTravellers

A friendly cafe situated in the outdoors in Broome.Open 0700 hrs 7 days for an all day breakfast and for lunch and during the week remaining open for afternoon teas. The only table service cafe in Chinatown. Daily Specials and fresh salad choices.We take pride in the fact we are not a fast food outlet with pre cooked bain marie type produce. During busy days delays may be experienced as all food is cooked once orders are received.
