Fodor's Review

At this rustic beach shack–style café on the rain forest–fringed Coral Sea shore, formerly Cafe on Sea, service can be surly, and food is typically stodgy and old-fashioned, but the location's terrific: nab an outside table and contemplate the ocean. If deep-fried fare doesn't appeal, opt for coffee and cake, or the smallish but relatively healthy mezze plate. Make phonecalls here: it's one of the few spots in the area that gets clear cell-phone reception.
