The food and service was outstanding and wonderful place to go on a sunny day. The view was spectacular,and was very relaxing.

Stuart

Friendly and efficient service and a great breakfast, just across from the wharf. What more could you want? The cafe opens early, does great coffees and a good range of breakfast options.

Baglan

Very impressed with service. Shakes. Price. Would recommend this to all waiting their boat. Very fast service. 

Andrew

We moved to this fabulous town two years ago, Espy is our regular meeting place for coffee, breakfast or yummy ice cream. The position across from the wharf ensures plenty of activity to keep you entertained. Views rival some of the best we have travelled the world to see. Friendly staff top off the experience. 

Peter 

Great food and friendly service thanks! Your team is the well deserved "national winner 2015" for your chocolate/fudge milkshake - delicious.
