North Point Cafe

With a view to deliciousness
Gaze out at the beautiful Brighton Beach while you enjoy breakfast, lunch or a snack at the perfectly located North Point Cafe.

At the very end of North Road, the beachfront cafe serves a satisfying all-day breakfast. Compared to other Brighton cafes, the pricing is quite reasonable.

The North Point Cafe is right across from Brighton Beach.

Despite the empty deckchairs, it was difficult to get a seat at the busy North Point Cafe. While there were plenty of seats outside in full sun, the shaded and indoor areas were completely full. Upon asking to be seated inside, we were directed to a temporary spot to sit and wait until a table for two was free. Once we had migrated to a table, it was a long wait before a waitress came to take our order and an even longer wait after that for our food to arrive.

I was amazed at the size of my big breakfast, piled high with more food than can be stomached in one sitting. The big breakfast, costing $18.50, consisted of two slices of toast with poached eggs, two beef sausages, four mushrooms, a large spherical hash brown, a serve of fried bacon and an entire cooked tomato. The only aspect of the breakfast which was normal sized were the two poached eggs.

The poached eggs were the highlight, cooked to perfection. There was ample bread to soak up the yolks, although the bread was not particularly fresh. Bacon enthusiasts would delight in the generous serving of smoky, crispy bacon. The sausages weren't amazing, being a little on the oily side and lacking flavour. Overall it was a decent and satisfying breakfast.

My friend ordered scrambled eggs on toast with mushrooms. The size of her breakfast wasn't quite as overwhelming as mine, although at about half the price of the big breakfast it was good value.

While not all patrons are afforded a view of the beach from their seats indoors, at the very least you can look at the fish tank as you dine. With an assortment of colourful and exotic fish, the fish tank takes pride of place in the centre of the cafe.
