A foodies Paradise
Vegans and Gluten free catered for food staff and views are exceptional, my other review should have hearts not ? ??


The food is beyond compare, The Menu is wonderland, and reasonable Prices, the staff really take care you, and their manners are beautiful, And the View of the Surf is Ethereal, I love this place??????????


Cafe meets fine dining. Definitely with a visit


I LOVE this restaurant and spend my entire summer holidays treating myself to dinners, lunches or breakfasts here! Great value, delicious food, service is always with a smile! I highly recommend to anyone visiting ocean grove!


Food and views are great. Haven't had a good wine, coffee or tea yet.


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.
