I was headed to Coogee Pavillion but ended up here instead. Better food, better prices, better service, great coffee, better views!!

Only a small cafe that is always a hive of activity due to its great food 🥘 and location. The Breakfast Burger 🍔 is delicious 😋. Give this place a try on a Sunny Sunday morning 👍

Visited the cafe earlier today to buy 3x avocado on toast + coffee - take away. I was charged $34 ($10 for each avocado toast). Wasn’t happy with what I was charged, but OK! Then the food came, all the toasts were burnt with tiny...More

Quite simply the best coffee on our recent Sydney trip, we just got a quick takeaway and sat and drank it by the water and watched the world go by. If you need caffeine in Coogee, you'd be mad to go anywhere else.

This place is a refreshing change to the repetitive cafescape of Coogee Beach. Been several times with the family and with friends & the menu has something to make everyone happy. Even my fussy pescatarian 10 year old. It's extremely popular amongst the celebs &...More

Our experience was ruined by a moody waitress and one coffee arriving 5 minutes before the other 2 hot drinks.

At Coogee for four day conference...the coffee kept me sane, awake and alive. Best Coffee ever...I wish I had asked what beans they use...I normally have double shots, that's standard in their world, oh how I love thee.

This place was a crowd pleaser. We all got different breakfast bowls, and they were delicious, and reasonable. Nice people, good coffee. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. Best dish ordered was the protein bowl (an overwhelming amount of food)

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity

A beachside cafe with an extensive all day dining menu. We have the BEST coffee in Coogee, along with a traditionally modern cafe menu with a twist. Lots of healthy options available!
