The Tropicana Cafe is something of an institution along the Coogee Bay Rd strip. In a city where cafes pop up and disappear with the frequency of whacka moles,this is no mean feat. The place is a microcosm of eastern beaches life. The waitresses, all pretty young things, sashay about in tight lycra and hot pants. The clientelle is comprised largely of NRL types, overseas students, dog walkers and bleary eyed Mums. Although the place is large its near possible to negotiate a pram around and theres no baby change table in its spacious loo. These inconveniences aside, it is quite child friendly. Theres a kids menu with all the classics and they have colouring in paraphenalia behind the counter.
