Just up here for the weekend and love going out for breakfast, this place was able to seat us outside right away - service was friendly and quick. So many menu options - surely everyone can find something they like. Meals were great size and taste great. Very happy

We spent a rainy weekend in Nelson Bay. We came here for breakfast on the Saturday and loved it so much, we came back on Sunday!!! I enjoyed the smashed avocado with extras- hubby enjoyed the bacon and eggs blackstone and granola! Kids loved the pancakes and sourdough. Presentation of the food was amazing! Good service. Great coffee! We will... More
