What a great place. A wet rainy day in Westport, where better to go for a breakfast. We were so impressed that we booked an evening meal here too. I had the Miners Breakfast which managed to beat me. It was everything you could want...on a wet rainy day and very filling. The evening meal was just as impressive too. we both had the carbonara and if was delicious. The staff were welcoming and courteous and nothing was too much effort.More

The food was OK, but the big disadvantage is that the dining area is shared with the bar, so the meal is accompanied by drunks shouting, and laughing at the top of their voice.

Great Cafe, food was nice and fresh, the desert was amazing and finally found someone that makes the best Tia Maria Irish coffee. The staff were nice and friendly. The manager maybe owner was so nice and friendly and best coffee maker.

We really enjoyed the steaks which you could yourself on a hot plate and the wine was great. Like the outdoor decking area and the waitresses were really friendly and helpful. Overall I think we chose the perfect place for dinner.

We both enjoyed our dining experience here and the staff were super friendly. I ordered the fish and chips and my husband ordered the chicken and bacon salad. We both thought our food was great, and would definitely return here next time we are in...Westport. So glad they were open on a Sunday night.More

Best rump meat served in a hot stone . The staff was super friendly . The meat was melting in my mouth served with chips. They have a pool table . The toilet was super clean. So yes you will have to come here if...you are stopping in Westport.More

We came for dinner tonight upon recommendation from our motel and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent, very friendly and helpful staff. Everything we had for dinner was very good and the seafood chowder was exceptional! A perfect way to end our time...in Westport.More

Nice staff. Limited menu. Overpriced for this kind of food. Steak wasn't the best tasting. The food wasn't really seasoned. Not the best coffee
