Having a lovely coffee and cake was such a lovely treat with this exceptional view. The adjacent lighthouse museum and marine radio operations was a real eye opener.

We were in awe of the spectacular views of Shoal Bay from this tearoom, however as an avid tea drinker it’s a pity that NO specialist teas are served. When asking for leaf tea, I was bluntly told that there was little demand for it and that they had no room in the kitchen for it. I would hardly think that a few jar of loose leaf tea would take up much room. From my experience a majority of tourist areas in Australia serve specialist tea for those of us who are not coffee drinkers. Many thanks to the 2 young lasses who were excellent outdoor waitresses. They are to be commended on their friendliness and service.

Walked 30 mins from the bottom to the light house. Well worth the effort, arrived at the top, and had brunch at Inner Light Tearooms.
Amazing food and nice staff.
Everyone should pay a visit.
