This rare alfresco riverside café morphed from an old ablutions block into a firm neighbourhood favourite (it’s also handy for Herring Island). It supplements its toasted pide selection with interesting breakfast options such as sticky rice with coconut, and lunch specials such as a Japanese-inspired noodle and duck salad. Fab as the location is, the service can be off-puttingly slow; loud commercial chill-out tunes don’t make the wait any easier.
