Waterfront Cafe Russell  

Great value meals and superb coffee

We specialize in breakfasts and lunches, with an emphasis on great coffee. We pride ourselves on being family friendly, serving great food and giving our customers value for money. Plenty of gluten free options too. Right on the beach, just south of the wharf, this is the perfect location to relax, and look out over the water. We are fully licensed so if you want to enjoy a beer or glass of wine, we have that too. We also have a great sheltered courtyard if the wind is off the water. Free WiFi available to our customers.
