We have visited here many times for lunch and/or coffee, over the last 5 years. The coffee was always very good, still is. We stopped for a panini- the price difference between eat in and takeway was ridiculous, and the quality of the panini, really poor. It is under new ownership and it appears they have cut back on quality.... More

Loved the Beef Burger. They were busy and it was a little slow (15-20 mins) but worth the wait. Took it over the road at ate at Balmoral Beach, great location. Hard to find a car park on the street on a very busy day though - (stalk people who are walking to their car!)

Well priced Italuan/Australian fare served with lovely coffee (thats not bitter!). Its a great view and a nice place to meet up for a sunday morning brekkie (especially if the weather is good ) Its certainly busy here for a sunday morning.

Awful, awful and awful - that's one awful for each of the meals that we ordered. We had three different meals and not one was finished. Very poor quality food and presentation. Complete waste of money. I cannot recommend this place at all - except that it is in a lovely location. Will put this one down to experience.

Waited 30 minutes for a pre-made wrap, then when confronted about the time that it took I was yelled and sworn at. There was a family of four who were served after me who promptly received all four of their burgers before I, the person who was served first, received a wrap which had to be taken out of the...

Went for breakfast and vey much enjoyed the avocado and tomato drizzled with pesto and walnuts. We have avocado and tomato at most of our favourite breakfast places but this was fantastic with the combination of different flavours. Very well priced and lovely location across from the beach.

Everywhere was so busy at balmoral but managed to get a seat here, so we took it. Had a pulled pork burger which was a bit bland and dry but satisfied my hunger. Ice coffee was ok. Really wanted a juice but they had run out for the day. Staff were friendly even though so busy.

But for one thing, this could have been fantastic. A friend and I stopped here for lunch after a long walk and we were hungry. The service was friendly, and the food looked amazing when it came out, but the pulled pork burger I had been so looking forward to was unfortunately lacking in pork - there was just a... More

We were hungry and looking for a place to eat when we stumbled across this restaurant on the Esplanade. The fish and chips were actually quite delicious and we ended up ordering more. The food came pretty quickly and the service was quite good. Would stop by here again the next time we are at Balmoral.
