This busy, cheerful venue is very much a place where the locals go, and it's well patronised on chilly winter days as well as during the summer. The well-organised management know their market, and how to give them what they want. And if you're bringing 90-yr old Aunt Beryl there for morning coffee, you can even book a window table just for that. The view over the Ocean Grove surf beach is spectacular.
