The Roma Bar serves generous breakfasts at reasonable prices and if you sleep late they do tasty lunches too. Serious caffeine addicts will love Xtreme Caffeine – you can request to have your coffee brewed mild, medium or strong depending on how much spring you need in your step. Enjoy the homemade quiches and breakfasts which seem even tastier because of the simple surrounds: rusty corregated iron panels and basic wooden fittings.The Cool Spot café, in Fannie Bay is popular with the locals and serves a great breakfast.
