From Batemans Bay to Broulee, get off the highway this holiday season and explore some excellent joints serving great coffee and fabulous flavours on the Eurobodalla Coast. Support business owners on our battle-weary coast this Summer and you will be rewarded with quality food and drinks, wonderful service and appreciation. Lisa Herbert has been out and about … again.

Crumb Café
Address: 268 Beach Rd, Batehaven

At Crumb Café we enjoyed one of the best coffees and best breakfasts we’re ever had. Perfectly textured latte and no need for an extra shot. Just delicious. We couldn’t resist a Crumb breakfast, the meals looked so delicious going past to other diners. A bowl of Bircher muesli came draped with lemon curd, surrounded by strawberries, watermelon, edible violas and fresh oozing honeycomb. It looked almost too good to eat. Brekky is served until 11:30 am and then it’s on to burgers, and veggie salads with loads of gourmet touches like pickles, crumbs, relishes, exotic fruit and nuts, and a well-stocked cabinet of edible goodness. Highly recommended.

The Mossy Café
Address: 31 Pacific Street, Shop 7, Mossy Point

Extremely popular, Mossy Café is big and busy with a bold menu. Much of the product is made from scratch, sourced locally and they pride themselves on knowing where everything comes from. There’s an excellent all-day menu offering sourdough breakfasts, loaded brekky fries and pimped up scrambled eggs, Mossy bowls of granola, smoothies, or Mexican salsa-laden salads, Seoul Bowls and Rainbow Salad Bowls. Strange and beautiful birds were calling from the trees shading us. Relax and enjoy.

Single Fin Canteen & Goods
Address: Shop 3/79 Coronation Drive, Broulee

Walking into Single Fin is a bit like walking into a beach party. Fake lawn, fringed umbrellas and surfboards adorn the interior. Sit back in a sun lounge and check out the retro vibe, where every corner is a cute vignette of surfboard bits, mirrors, lamps and quite loud shirts. It’s a very friendly vibe. Our lattes were delicious with well-textured milk and a good strong shot. They have a selection of gelato from Kiama producer The Pines, also pastries and bircher muesli in the cabinet, and refreshing natural juice pops. A very happy place in beautiful Broulee.

Address: 23-25 Grant St, Broulee

It’s always a bright, sunshiny kind of day at Killibinbin, a little café with a big heart in Broulee. A lovely vibe, big smiles, colourful and eclectic décor and loads of good stuff to eat and drink, both organic and wholesome. This place is a bit of a locals’ secret, and like many secrets it’s a little bit exciting to find. Noah’s Juices, Strangelove Sodas, big bowls of bounteous salads, take home Cool Beanz and Muesli, and darned delicious coffee! Good vibrations abound.
