This spot is right next to the reef terminal and so a good choice for an early breakfast before a snorkel trip. The food is good and the prices are reasonable.

1 of the only spots open on the terminal for breakfast with indoor/outdoor seating. A bit expensive , I suppose the rent is high , with quite a variety of breakfast options. Service was good and friendly with it being busy.
