Having had family living in the area, over the years this was our 'go to' coffee and cake café. We had lunch at Hamilton's which was delicious and decided to go to back to the boat shed for coffee & cake. We were greeted with a deadpan faced employee, asking where we should sit was like pulling teeth. The sign stating you can't sit in the dining area during certain hours looked unprofessional. We weren't there in those hours.... back to the counter to select our cakes from a sad looking selection. I chose the strawberry & rhubarb cheesecake, the thinnest coating of cheesecake over the small amount of fruit, never seen anything like it! 2 others had carrot cake, 1 citrus tart which had a nice flavour all with my pet hate... squirty cream... yuk! Coffee was nice but we won't be back. A very unhappy looking staff!

Had a lovely lunch here recently. Sat outside on the deck which has great surroundings and tables not too close together.
Sit where you like, order at the counter and waitress brings food out.
There is also an inside area you can sit at, or outside on a covered deck. This area seemed quite busy and maybe a bit noisy but has a lovely view.. We sat around the side, not the best view, but nice and quiet away from the noisy inside area. if you are going with a large group you would probably need to book a table.
Food was very good, reasonably priced and came out quickly. Salt and pepper prawns and squid was very good, salad and chips as well.
All staff seemed very friendly.
Very nice, relaxing place for lunch

My partner and I stopped by for a quick lunch as we have not dined here in a while. The friendly table service coupled with exceptional value driven lunch menu really impressed us. We ate alfresco on the waterfront in the sun in a peaceful and relaxed environment. I highly recommend Paradise Marina as a quick and easy cafe for a meal. Thank you so much to the lovely staff, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we will be back soon!

Situated at the waters edge of Breckenridge channel this cafe offers excellent food with great views. The breakfast menu while not large offers good value. A Sunday must for visitors. Highly recommended.
