A great breakfast here, I think they will cook whatever you want which is really good. I had a poached egg on toast which was cooked perfectly and really good latte, my husband had cheese on toast with bacon, which he enjoyed and a vanilla milk shake. It's difficult to get a vanilla one anywhere really. Would use again if... More

I first walked into North Bay cafe 10 years ago. I wondered how a cafe slightly off the beaten track was so popular. I realised many of the customers were local.

I needed a little pick me up after a late night and this cafe did the job. Good tea, good sandwich and efficient service. Even filled up my water bottle to take out on my walk. Nice friendly cafe.

Called into this place looked ok at first but didn't order any food because they let dogs in a customer came in with a long haired dog shook itself hair all over the place . Didn't think animals were allowed in where food is served with the exception of guide dogs . Won't visit again
