So many creative whole food choices with a lot of variety. I had the goodness porridge, so yummy and unique. They nailed it! In flavour,... More

Went here for brunch on a Saturday, and had delicious salmon salad and big breakfast. The staff greeted us instantly and were very friendly and helpful. We waited a little longer for the food but it was a busy saturday and completely worth the wait. Thanks!

Popped in for breakfast based on reviews. The coffee took a while and was nice but not special. The French Toast however was spectacular. Perhaps it was because it's the first morning after a long weekend but I was the only one in the cafe to begin with and it lacked ambience. But I can't figure out why. The music... More

We had a lovely coffee on the deck at Bungalow. There were a number of families enjoying the sunshine.

I have been going to bungalo for sometime and there is always a high standard of service with consistent great coffee and food I also just found out they used special barista velvet organic milk which is something different and makes a difference so next time your looking for a place to go on the shore I would recommend here

I have just had my fourth visit here today & each time I go I say I won't go again. I joined two friends who had already decided on this place, so I went along (everyone deserves a second (or third or fourth) chancery!? The food is reasonable but it doesn't make up for the service iwhich is always lacking,... More
