Good coffee and extremely tasy custard squares [also known as vanilla slices in Australia] are the go here - moderate prices, and sitting down with a view of the ocean while you consume your goodies has to be a bonus!

Are you sure you got the right cafe as Cafe Jireh has been closed for the last 3 weeks +. The price sames alittle high but depends on how many and what you ordered for drinks.
