It looked so busy it nearly put us off but I'm glad we stopped. The food was delicious the service prompt. Prices reasonable and atmosphere relaxing . We did not have to wait long considering there were so busy.

Stopped here for brunch. Very busy and can understand why. Reasonably priced food and a good variety to choose from. Lovely outlook to the ocean. Great coffee too.

We walked the Mount and then stopped in for a quick coffee and scone! The bacon cheese scone was delicious. And the hand squeezed juice was the best ever. Lovely place and service and you can't beat the view.

Popped in for breakfast and while standing outside looking at the menu one of the staff came straight up and offered assistance. Great first impression and good service. The location is directly across from the beach so well placed for a good experience. The breakfast and coffee were great and the overall experience means this is now my cafe of... More

Friendly service. The muffins were fresh and tasty. The best (of the 5 we tried over various days) was the raspberry and white chocolate - the best I have ever eaten! The smoothies and milkshakes were nice but over priced for the amount actually served. Not a coffee drinker, but Hubbie thought the coffee was ok, but nothing to write... More

I heard this place was great so maybe I went in with too high expectations! The menu is huge but just standard cafe options. The salmon salad was good but nothing to rave about. This place would be good for large families as there is lots of seating and so many menu options. For me, it's just a standard cafe.

Had always heard a lot about Deckchair, so went there with my family for breakfast. The service was a little slow; but food and coffee OK, nothing special. It may simply be that the overall quality of similar establishments in the vicinity has improved markedly, so Deckchair no longer stands out as special. Wouldn't race back, but equally would drop...
