I popped in for a takeaway coffee - it was really nice. The place is looking refreshed and inviting. I think I will have to come back for lunch - the display looks great.

Had lunch at Zenbah - the meals were massive. The seating outside was relaxed. We had salt and pepper squid which was served gluten free.

This little restaurant food was great. Feels more like a pub inside though. Best sweet potato chips. Stopped to eat for seafood but ended up having steak.

We enjoyed the friendly service a lot. The calamari was fantastic. It's a nice place to chill with friends, too.

We were looking for a good coffee in Mission Beach. The girl behind the counter/bar provided standard service. We paid $10 for 2 lattes. We took them away and ended up chucking them. Blech! My coffee was watery and my boyfriends tasted like beer had somehow gotten into it....no thanks!

Ventured out looking for a great breakfast spot and we found it. All ordered something different but no problems here. Service was fast efficient and courteous, meal size was very generous and well presented and overall was great tasty food. Price was a nice surprise too.

Thank Terri S
