They offer vegan options too (plant-based milk etc), which is excellent. 👍👍. Their chips are also very yummy.

We chose this Cafe for breakfast which was faultless and delivered exactly to our liking. The staff were most friendly and attentive. The Cafe is clean and well presented with a fabulous wall mural (yet to be fully finished as it lacks a Gecko).

A great little spot for a great value breakfast. Asked for a pineapple juice-it was freshly squeezed for me. Servings were quite large. Lovely local find.

Great food, coffee and lovely friendly staff. Relaxed casual ambience too! Prices of food are also very good and you can get a toasted sandwich for $5. Vegan, GF friendly too. Can’t go wrong here and just across the road from the Ramada Marcoola.
