If you visit the new Mannum Waters Marina and fancy some refreshments, the coffee boat is a relaxing and romantic place to eat. Alfresco dining is available outside on the small pier or you can eat inside the cabin enjoying the slight movement of the boat as the water ripples.
The menu is surprisingly varied for a coffee boat. There is a coffee and cake deal, a tea and scone deal and a range of fresh and toasted sandwiches which the proprietors will make fresh when you place an order. In addition, I noticed bacon and eggs and a nice salmon meal on their menu.
The coffee boat is open most weekends (Friday to Sunday) and some public holidays. However, strong wind or power failures in the local area can affect their opening hours, so it might be a good idea to check their Facebook page or ring the mobile number before making a long drive.
