Well located on the main street of Margaret River. Coffee's are excellent and their cakes are delicious.... with no calories...ah ah who cares...life is short. Before we leave M/R..we are going to have a banh mi roll which also look delicious... A lot of diners were present when we visited this cafe/restaurant....a very good sign that can't be ignored.

This place is always good! Great views, delicious food. The smashed pumpkin is amazing, especially if you add bacon and egg to it.... Delicious! Good coffee too. The only note is in the summer you can get hammered with flies and in winter smashed with the breeze... So gear up accordingly but still worth going... One of the best cafes down that way David Toby

Absolutely amazing meals. Especially the Spanish eggs and the smashed pumpkin. One of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time - flavour, diversity, presentation, and the size was perfect for the price. Staff were overloaded with people wanting to sit inside and avoid the rain, but the coffees and food didn't even take too long Mia Iannarelli
