Tucked away in an arcade off the main strip, Easy Cafe is a terrific option for relaxed breakfasts, light lunches, and suppers, drawing a sociable mix of travelers and locals, who come for the reasonably priced, tasty food and great coffee. In addition, there's good music, free Wi-Fi, board games, comfy sofas, and accommodating staff. Join the crowd that flocks here Monday to Friday for the good-value Easy Breakfast; pop in during the day for terrific coffee and cake, a burger, or a cold beer. After five, they offer a small but varied menu of quality Modern Australian dishes; try the basil-cashew nut crusted rack of lamb with creamy mash.
