Food and coffee were absolutely amazing. Unfortunate that the clothing choice of some staff members were a little less pleasing. Crop tops aren’t meant for hospitality

Had a lovely lunch lunch in the sunshine with friends. All of the food we ate was amazing. Easy ordering from QR codes at your table. Food and drink just magically appeared without you having to move! Fantastic spot, fantastic food and fantastic service.

Simple meal menu done well and reasonably priced. Fresh ingredients, Smashed av with goats chese and the Middle Eastern bowl highlights. Great company, super chilled atmo that suits late-rise weekend brunch, quick walk up from Broulee Beach. Cheeky lorikeets a plus.

This is a popular cafe. You do need to be patient to wait for a table to free up, but the food’s worth the wait. A nice selection of standard and contemporary options.

This is a rather quaint cafe that now occupies numerous rooms and a large outdoor area with a variety of seating. It was previously famous for its muffins and from what we saw the muffins are still lovely. Coffee was goood, however, the scrambled eggs...we ordered have to be some of the worst we've tasted. The eggs had the consistency of rubber and no flavour and the accompanying avocado came as an over-ripe mash, also with little flavour. We've previously enjoyed breakfast here and suspect the fact that half the ACT was there had something to do with our disappointing breakfasts. Others in our group had vegan breakfasts and seemed quite happy with them. It's probably best to avoid really busy times when the staff are over-stretched. The garden area is a good place to meet up with family or friends.More

Always good. The Mossy has gone through many iterations over the years but has been ‘The Mossy’ for some time now. They have adapted well to the COVID world, offering online takeaway. The coffee and cakes are always good. The menu is not as diverse...as it used to be, which is a bit of a shame. But we will always visit the Mossy at least once each coast trip.More
