This is a lovely little beachside cafe exuding a warm and friendly atmosphere, owned and managed by a gorgeous couple. We dined here for lunch today (Valentine's Day) and the food was delicious and the coffee never disappoints. It's pretty obvious that Luke and Georgia have a great connection with their local community, as we witnessed many regulars come and... More

I have been to this cafe several times, most recently at the end of last year, and can vouch for its consistency and quality. The staff are always friendly and energetic, the coffee is delicious (coffee snob here) and the food is light and refreshing. I recommend the acai bowl for brunch - however be warned it is quite big... More

This cafe is by far the best I've experienced on the central coast. It has delicious & nutritious food & drinks, catering to dietary requirements (gf, df & vegan). The staff are super friendly and it's location is great - 1 street back from beach so close to action but protected from coastal winds. You can eat in or takeaway... More

This place is one of the best cafe's on the coast, its location is good, whilst tucked away in North Avoca it's still great right opposite the beach and ample parking all the time. I visited for the new dinner menu, the best thing about it is the selection is small but they have mastered the meals on their menu... More

The queue for Terrigal went for ever so we decided to try our luck at North Avoca. My daughter opted for the raw vegan burger and I had the standard breakfast. She had the single bean coffee and I had the house blend. Both coffees were excellent. You pay slightly more but the standard of food and service was well... More

One of our favourite local cafes. The coffee is always fantastic and the menu is fresh and tasty. Located in a prime spot just opposite North Avoca beach the cafe has a great vibe and relaxed atmosphere. Love how the owners are very community focused too, such as being part of the Take 3 project.

Popped in for a casual Saturday lunch, tables available, service great. Coffee was the standout - excellent! One of us had a hot choc who said it was the best they'd had in ages. Another had the fruit basket juice, also very good. Two of us had the burrito bowl which was lovely, one had poached eggs on Turkish which... More

This small cafe right behind the beach at North Avoca is a local secret that is quickly getting out there and earning a reputation for great coffee, food and friendly service. I go out of my way several times a week to grab a coffee. Do yourself a favour and give it a try - Luke and Georgia will look... More
