Despite rating this cafe only 3, I did like the place. Great atmosphere and located right beside the beach. We ordered muffins, which they took out of the freezer and heated in the microwave (not fresh), these were $5 each.

We vacationed in Hervey Bay for a long weekend in April 2017. We had breakfast at this cafe each morning as it was advertised as pet friendly. The staff were wonderful, and the food and service great. Well recommended.
