The Pass is located in a national park, awesome spot out of busy town, overlooking the famous Pass Surf territory. Surrounded by a national park, cheeky kookaburras, butcher birds and water dragons as you walk up the driveway. Nestled between native flora and with an...More

Had breakfast here this morning after a sunrise walk. Service was good. food and coffee were delicious and prompt, but we were the first customers of the day. Enjoyed reading the complimentary papers.

We have been to the Pass many times and we were really looking forward to breakfast here. All of our meals very awful. Eggs very over cooked, bacon undercooked, sides tasted like they were straight out of a can. Just really really disappointing
