If you haven’t been here before, Cove is a Licensed Café that is literally on the waters edge at the Haven, Terrigal. We absolutely love great food and the smell of a freshly ground coffee in the morning. We invite you to come down and relax, enjoy the views and our service – you don’t even have to bring a smile – we’ve got that covered for you already – free of charge.
