If you like deep fried food you will love it here. We enjoyed their food, but are more inclined for more fresh options.

The cafe is adjacent Stokes Bay (you need to access this through a bit of a "tunnel" of rocks - follow the sign). Whatever you do, don't miss the beach. Cafe has drinks and serves meals, mostly fish. Staff are very friendly.
