Our first visit to this cafe. Offerings included pies and sausage rolls but I was attracted to the potato hash with fish. This came with a soft poached egg on top and red onion chopped throughout. The dish smelt wonderfully of smoked fish. I highly recommend it. My flat white coffee was well made and very nice, my friends Americano was largely devoid of crema however.

Service was great, however we found the menu to be a overpriced.
We had pancakes and we had a half sized portion, this was 11/12 dollars.

We used to visit fairly often after doing volunteer work at Cape Sanctuary - it sort of went downhill for quite a while and we stopped going there. However, our usual cafe was closed so we decided to try Zepplin again - it's been all redecorated and there are new owners. There were lots of food choices at reasonable prices - I had a cinnamon pin wheel and it was excellent. Also had a large flat white and heavens be praised it was hot! All too often coffees are presented so cool that two gulps and it's gone - I'm not a coffee aficionado but I do like it to be hot - so I automatically gave the place a few extra points. Setting is nice but there's a bit of noise from next door which is a bit off-putting (not their fault I know but does detract hence VG rating). Overall worth the visit and we'll keep returning

From a customer experience perspective the food saved the day. The service seemed so relaxed that it felt we were imposing on them.
The chef should hire a professional mystery shopper to judge why the food is being let down by the part that should be the easiest to get right.

Awesome coffee and food. Just what we needed! The slice with salty caramel sauce was divine. Also had a visit to the amenities which were extra clean. Lovely outdoor area shaded by grape vines and with loads of seating. Would be a good place for a gathering of friends and family. Also they have lovely art works on display and for sale.
