16 The Esplanade
We had a late breakfast at the Frontbeach cafe on a Sunday, in fact we only just beat the 12 noon cut off!
As you'd expect from the name, it is sited across the road from the 'front' beach on the Esplanade in central Torquay. It was fairly busy when we arrived, especially outside, but we happened to find the table with the best view available!
Initially there seemed to be a problem with our coffee orders but that just meant we had had time to figure out what we wanted to eat by the time the waitress returned. Our meals then appear in superfast time, before our coffees, which wasn't a problem.
I had the vego breakfast with 2 poached eggs, half an avocado, grilled tomato, mushrooms spinach and toast. The ingredients were well prepared and it was a satisfying combo.
The scrambled eggs and bacon provided a good quality and generous serve of both components which nearly defeated the better half.
The view certainly enhanced the meal and my only quibble would be with a slightly weak long black. The bill was around $40. I'd happily return on any warm or sunny day to dine and gaze out across the ocean, which was especially enjoyable after a morning run on the beach and brief autumnal dip under the waves.
