Fodor's Review

Situated right in the thick of things on Halfmoon Bay Wharf, this popular cafe above the ferry terminal positively bustles from early morning through late afternoon with an eclectic mix of locals and visitors. An impressive menu of breakfast treats, local seafood (try the divine Oyster soup!), huge salads, yummy cakes and muffins all made on-site by owner/operator Jo Leask. Gluten-free and vegetarian options available. Grab a window seat and watch the boats load and unload or spot little blue penguins darting beneath the clear waters below as you sip a tipple from the fully licensed bar. Evening meals available weekends from December through March.
