The Rock Cafe is the hub of the club, especially in the mornings and late afternoons. Our friendly and welcoming baristas serve up fresh juices and smoothies, coffees, milkshakes and homemade treats throughout the day.
The Rock Cafe
The Rock Cafe is the first area of the club to open each morning as the team welcome guests coming for an early morning water-ski with a delicious hot coffee. This is the main hub for breakfast, with a mixture of hot dishes prepared by the kitchen and lighter bites served from the cafe. Fresh juices and smoothies are always popular and there are plenty of requests for the daily specials. As lunch service begins, there’s typically a period of calm, before the mid-afternoon when it’s usually our younger guests who are lining up for milkshakes. For those wanting a little indulgence after a sail or a windsurf, delicious homemade cakes are served for afternoon tea.
