It's a great drive to get there. The view is relaxing from the cafe and it is located right at the dam wall where you can watch the water flowing out of the lake, over the spillway.

Worth the trip out. As locals and patrons about six or seven times a year, the cafe continues to deliver great food and an awesome service. Unique venue creates a good atmosphere. Occasionally very busy, however the operations continue on effectively with a well trained front and back of...M house staff. Underrated venue on the GC and well worth a visit.

Mr Jamie Griffiths Well what's not to love about the beautiful ambiance of this fantastic Cafe! Local or tourist alike will enjoy the outdoor covered eating area of this fantastic little Cafe. The fresh homemade food menu is impeccably prepared from the beautiful aromatics flavours of the gorgeous...M pork and fennel sausage rolls, to the delicious rich chocolate brownies.....washbthem down with a chocolate milkshake or a glass of wine, yes its licenced. I warn you one is never enough..... I mean the brownie that is! We live on the coast and often come to see the dam overflowing, always making sure to frequent this fabulous little Cafe everytime! At times we can't wait for the rain so often sneak out for lunch. The beautiful fresh air and the stunning views of the hinterland mountains, seen straight from your table make it a great experience. The sevice is always excellent, friendly and the food is prompt to your table! If you come to the Gold Coast add this to your list of must sees whilst you are here! Enjoy the food, you will want to take some doggy bags home with you...... Especially the brownies!
