The cafe at the end of the tram line

I had brunch the other day at the Cafe Del Mar. It's a wonderfully quirky cafe, with very unusual decor which has a hint of the Greek islands or perhaps Bali - well, I suppose the beach really. The walls inside are painted with resort and fishing town themes. Asking the waiter didn't reveal much about the origins of the decor either as he didn't seem to know - I almost had the impression that it was designed to reflect the place where you, the customer, most wanted to be - very clever!

Our eggs were marvellous as you can see for yourself.

My delicious breakfast

There is also quite a large alfresco dining area out the back, and a few tables and chairs on the footpath. The coffee was also very nice, and there was an assortment of expensive biscuits on the counter if all you desired was to meet friends for coffee and to a have a little nibble. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the waiters didn't hover, which was great.

I had the impression that the place was a bit of a local haunt and I could imagine there would be peak times such as the coffee before work crowd and the weary after work crowd who have come out of city by tram after a long day. We were neither but enjoyed both the food, the coffee and the atmosphere!
