After checking out the adjacent establishment, we were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices and great service at this cafe. Good range of food and cakes - mainly pre-prepared, and great coffee made this an enjoyable lunch. Food was fresh and well presented.

Simple, tasty and good value. We went on a friday evening and had the steak special. The steak was cooked well. The polenta and veggies had an awesome flavour. Yes, I would do steak night again.

We enjoyed a quick breakfast here. The fruit loaf was amazing. Loaded with fruit and 2 very generous slices. Coffee was also great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely return for the fruit loaf.

We have been many, many times to CbtB, and many times we've thoroughly enjoyed our times and meals there, this last experience was well below par. First, and one of our favourite experiences was always trying to fit in Buttered Nut Pancakes, not this time. Why on Earth would anyone change a winning flavour combination, there's a reason this simple... More

This place is in a great location which makes it even more dissapointing. The food is very overpriced, and the quality and freshness just isnt there. Paid more for avocado and bacon- very small portions. The fruit salad tasted like it came from a can. If your going to sell average food you need to lower your prices. I wont... More

Invited a friend to the once iconic cafe to b disappointed by not only limited,unimaginative food choice, prices too high for the quality of food served. Water served to table was hot as was the wine. Never again.

Came here for breakfast and had the Portobello Mushroom dish with an avo salsa.. it was really yummy, although for $18 I would have hoped for more avocado and more than 2 mushrooms! Apart from that, the meal was was absolutely delicious and the service was pleasant.

I have dined here on a few occasions and always found the meal delicious and good value compared to some venues on the coast. Last night I chose the vegetarian option and my 2 friends had the barramundi. I have also tried the steak special on a Friday night and the salads at lunch time. The bread and butter pudding...
