Mother's Day on the water

Breakfast on the Lake

The most ideally located restaurant in all of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie is now serving breakfast of a weekend.


Crusoe’s on the Lake is the new restaurant within the Lake Macquarie Yacht Club and has been an immediate hit; drawing back crowds every day of the week. The quality and consistency of the food has a lot to do with it as well as offering value for money with $12 lunches Monday to Friday.

A quick brekky option

Offering breakfast seemed the next logical step. It would be a shame to waste such a wonderful location. There is a deck that extends over the water and comfortably seats 100+ people, as well as decks chairs and lounges that are well positioned on the waterfront in the sun. This is in addition to the large indoor dining room with surrounding windows overlooking Belmont Bay.

As with everything else Crusoe’s on the Lake has done so far, we didn’t want to do this whole breakfast thing half baked and the menu reflects that. The Crusoe’s Plank is a BIG breakfast and includes a steak, sausage, bacon, beans amongst other things -not for the faint hearted. The waffles are made fresh in house as well as the pancakes and each have toppers to make you cry with enjoyment.

Crusoe’s Plank is a huge breakfast option

It isn’t just the food that has people raving about our breakfast though; the coffee is amazing! We decided to overhaul the whole coffee experience at the club and pull in the big guns –Peaberry’s. A locally owned and run coffee roaster who provides a great tasting bean as well as an excellent training program for our young baristas. Peaberry’s have been invaluable in our quest to make the best coffee in Belmont and we can’t thank them enough.

Every Saturday and Sunday from 7:30am you can pop in and have the best breakfast experience in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. Located on the water in Belmont, Crusoe’s is like no other venue. We’d love to see you here.
