We ate here on Friday for breakfast. The food was fantastic and the service could not have been better. The location is awesome. I would love to stay in one of the cottages on the property. The whole place is a hidden gem. The avocado toast is the best I have had. The crazy Bloody Mary and the pins cup were outstanding. Our whole group loved their dishes. We will definitely return and highly recommend this place. I recommend reservations.

Lovely day but as it was warming up at 3 pm the plastic we were sitting next to, became like a sauna!! There was no air blowing through and it became very uncomfortable!

The food is always great along with the service. Great views of the ocean. After your meal take a nice walk on the beach.

Enjoyed my visit to Beachcomer Cafe. I am from out of town and was referred by a friend who used to live in the area. Our waiter, Ryan, was quick and efficient. He was well versed in the menu and made recommendations for both food and drink. It was a bit chilly and it rained intermittently, so the plastic walls were down and we could not see the ocean. But the food was amazing and the location was incredible.

All I can say is the view is spectacular. We had the coconut macadamia nut pancakes which were the best ever. Syrup had real pieces of coconut in it.

Walking to the restaurant was so romantic, dining there while listening to the waves crash was amazing, and the food was epic.

We hadn’t been here for a long time. Delighted that we came back. This was without a doubt the very best dinning experience we have had in a very long time, anywhere. We dined just as the sun was setting over the ocean, beautiful weather, a waiter who’s timing and approach was impeccable, our dinner was an explosion of taste. What better way to celebrate a birthday!!! We are still talking about it!!!
