Went for breakfast with my little one and can’t say enough good things about Maccoa. Very friendly service, great food and a really enjoyable place to sit and take in the view. Short stroll to the main promenade in Terrigal.

The coffee was absolutely disgusting and was watery and had minimal flavour. The toast was soggy and wasn’t cooked. Overall the service was average and it was utterly terrible. Considering the sign out front that’s says it is #1 in Terrigal it was obviously false...advertisement as it was disgraceful.More

Everyone staying at the Clan Motel were raving about the breakfast at this restaurant. Eight of us turned up at 9.30am on a Friday morning. They were reasonably busy. Took us over an hour to receive our breakfast and all the eggs we ordered soft...were hard. I recommend booking a table which was probably our downfall. Coffee on the other hand was sensational!!More

Great spot for breakfast. Food was ok. Pancakes, eggs Benedict & smoothies were good. Let down by the omelette (under seasoned, over cooked and where was the cheese) Also service needs improvement.

Searched Tripadvisor for the best breakfast venue in Terrigal and there's a reason why Maccoa scores high. Friendly and quick service, delicious food and good coffee. What more do you want? A view? Maccoa has that too!

2 friends and I ate brekkie here today. Great little venue but the food and service let them down today. Mucked up the coffee order, failed to bring water glasses after 2 requests and breakfast was undercooked. Prices reasonable.

I came down for a quick visit to see friends and family and i asked them where the best place for breakfast is on the Central Coast. They sent me here to Maccoa Terrigal. Where as soon as you walk through the door you are...greeted by wonderful people. I met Breda who is a one of a kind hostess. Breda is warm welcoming and a great person to have a chat with. The food here is brilliant. When you come here make sure you try the banana bacon pancakes. Delicious to the very last bite.More
