Just had breakfast here, what a disappointment, bacon/eggs sourdough, tomato. $16 for undercooked eggs, 1x very small piece of bacon, half a small tomato not cooked and cold, absolute rubbish!! We live local and eat breakfast often in Terrigal, will never eat here again.

Stopped for a meal just on a whim and found awesome food. Generous portions and $10 burgers and chips if you buy a drink with your meal. Tasty salads and good service.

There are many coffee shops in Terrigal and especially along the beachfront. I've been to all of them and I rate driftwood bar as serving the best coffee. I'm a resident and I come here for my daily fix.
