We had a relaxed lunch with our two teenage sons in the East Head Cafe. The quality of the food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and professional. Great views on the Ocean from virtually all tables.

Simply the best views and the best fish and chips - period. Get there early as the parking is a challenge. Excellent service. Will return again and again.
