We had the Ventnor Bay breakfast which was very tasty and so large we didn't need lunch! Daily specials include freshly caught seafood and local produce.

Always head here when we visit the Island. If your hungry go for the Ventnor Bay brekkie, or as we call it "The Belly Buster" Always freshly cooked and hot, great staff and service guaranteed.

We enjoyed a family brunch here; good value, quality food. Accomodating of our daughter and plenty of tables and highchairs available. Worth a visit!

As a vegetarian, it is often hard to find good food. This cafe has a tasty vegetarian option in each of its food categories at a reasonable price.

The staff are friendly, the food is great, whether it is breakfast or lunch. Reasonably priced fare. The catch of the day is excellent, so fresh that when you order and choose the fish they then pop over the road to the fishery and pick it up. You cannot get fresher than that!

I can't fault this place. Superb food and service with a great location. I've recently been diagnosed with coeliacs disease and I believe that gluten free sausages aren't available yet. Please guys can you sort this out so I can come back and continue to enjoy my breakfast experience at your first class cafe.

Thank Jacobcreekus
