Visited the place few times, ambience is beautiful overlooking the water. The food is good, our favorite is mushroom ragu. The service needs to improve, takes time before someone welcome people standing by the door. The vibes of the staff not that friendly smiley and not that accommodating. The counter seems very thight for staff to move properly. After dining, supported business to have the money you worked for, do not expect the staff to say thank you when you are leaving the door, service has to improve a lot! See less

Visited lasted Saturday. Food was good but overpriced. Extras for 6$ makes dish complete but expensive. As everyone mentioned 40+ minutes wait for food was not good. It gets busy on weekends and considering small kitchen issue, may be some portable kitchen van option would help. Views are best from this place. wait staffs are polite and attend your queries. But little crowded behind the till. Section allocation , or task allocation may help in keeping tables clean and attending guests waiting to sit. See less

Oh my god this place is so nice. The sense of space, perched above the water. The classic, well considered food. And the lovely staff. Highly recommend 👌 See less

A lovely place and great over the water sensation And an interesting menu And the but, coffee was really dreadful. Either change your beans ordered a double expresso and I think it looked and tasted more like port river water A very busy spot and I think they need to review some processes, the environment got tense with people waiting a long time for food A little suggestion if it’s a cake order just take the order and put it on a plate and hand it back at the time of ordering, instead of writing it down and adding it to the pile But really nice to see people out supporting local business And lastly a word to staff, when you are walking past a table and people are finished just pick up the plates See less

Nice but a touch shambolic. After ordering and paying, we were told the kitchen was busy and food would be 40 minutes. 2/4 meals came out at 50 mins, one more just after an hour, and we had to cancel the last meal at an hour twenty. Coffee was nice but one of the three never came. Coffee was very good and the playground nearby is an asset too. See less

As read in most reviews the location is beautiful. I also highly recommend the food! We had halloumi burger and ragu mushrooms. 5 stars for this!! We were told that our food would take 1 hour, so this isn’t a complaint, but some constructive feedback for the owners. The long wait is because the kitchen is ‘small’. Given the space this restaurant has, one would think a practical solution for this problem would be to expand the kitchen? Having been told about the wait, we knew what to expect. However, I did overhear 1 customer cancel their breakfast because of the wait and another inquire and complain as they hadn’t been told, after waiting 45 minutes. Surely working to improve this situation would be better for business and customer satisfaction?? See less

This is a lovely Cafe on the water, most tables have a view of the water and the staff are friendly. They have a big chalk board for the kids to play with. (there is a playground but its not part of the cafe, next to the old mill) The best coffee I have had in a while. Bookings are a must for the weekends. Not sure about during the week. Highly recommend. See less

Such an awesome cafe with an incredible view! You're hanging out over the water which is just spectacular, especially when dolphins pop up right next to you! The food was excellent, coffee was good and staff were friendly. Certainly a hidden gem worth checking out when you're in the Port Adelaide area. See less

Screaming shades of Melbourne, folklore is a kitschy cafe serving delicious food with unrivalled views. As soon as we sat down, we were treated to a pod of dolphins swimming by. Friendly service and beautifully presented dishes. A nice find for Sunday morning See less

What a view. Best breakfast place in Port Adelaide. Great vegetarian options and wheelchair accessible. Only negative is having to go up to the counter to order. Just needs some table service. See less
