Your Breakfast View
Friendly staff greeted us as we sat outside under the umbrellas, table water and glasses arriving shortly after. Fresh juice blends were on offer, we each tried a refreshing watermelon, orange and apple juice to start.
I ordered the Veggie Brekkie, (minus the poached egg) $16.90, Sourdough toast, capsicum, red onion, tomato, avocado, snow peas, spinach (available mild or hot - I recommend hot for the spice lovers out there.) The crunchy snow peas were surprisingly perfect with this dish.
The Veggie Brekkie
My husband ordered the Shakshouka, $14.90, egg, spiced tomato and capsicum sauce, feta, with Chorizo (extra $2.00). Baked in a small cast-iron pan, served with Sourdough toast to mop up the sauce.

For those who prefer a sweeter breakfast, try the Aqua Pancakes, banana bread or honey-roasted muesli with yoghurt and mixed berries.
Inside, paying our bill, the space was filling up quickly. The busy barista was filling coffee orders with Toby's Estate Coffee Beans and we spied their selection of homemade cakes and scones.
Fresh Homemade Cakes & Scones
We worked off our breakfast with a walk to the Lighthouse, not to be missed.
