Visited for lunch, I had a pizza and my husband had a focaccia. The food was ok not great but just passable. The wine however was terrible. Both of us had two sips of our wine and didn't drink anymore. The wait staff were friendly however non of them asked about our full glasses of wine when we were waiting... More

This place has friendly fast service. It's a nice atmosphere and the meals are large. Meals are reasonably priced and there is a lot of variety on the menu. There cakes are delicious but they need to serve them with cream or ice cream and there a little pricey at $8. Most places I've been to do coffee and cake... More

Visited new years day probably expected too much but food was enjoyable, staff very busy and the cafe was overly noisy inside. Generally speaking it was enjoyable.

Do yourself a favour, stay away. Terrible service, terrible, lukewarm food. Obvious attempts at using as little food as possible in meals and making it look generous. Cold chips, not that cheap. Way better places in Willy to go to.

Outdoor Seating looking out to the bay. My partner had Smashed avocado goats cheese smash, with poached eggs and smoked salmon. I had the big breakfast which was amazing. Very good service and very quick.

So much so that we continue to return and , for example, last weekend we... More

We went as a group of six for brunch on a Sunday morning. Service was fast and friendly. The staff were so happy and even chatted away to my 18 month old neice, pretending to take her order etc. it was really sweet. Nothing was to much trouble. The meals were delicious and huge. Well worth the price which was... More
