It was cold and hot coffee needed... Sorry i just don't cope with Dog Lovers

I don't like dogs in the home and especially out eating. I got a take away coffee and left the dogs.

This is the perfect location for a quick breakfast and the cafe, then a very nice Kayak in the water or a bush walk following the water. Plenty of grass areas, perfect for a picnic for any size group.
