This year I've made 2 trips to Wollongong, and on both occasions i have come to this cafe! It was suggested to me from one of my work's customers, and i'm really glad i asked him! Its a cute little cafe sitting right on the beach, with a great view of the water and sand out front, a really nice accompaniment to your meal if you are able to get a window seat (which i did, both times!)
On my first visit i had corn fritters with avocado salsa, with a side of two hashbrowns and 1 egg fried sunny side up (no picture, as it came when i almost finished my food! But, i had ordered it a few minutes after i got my food, i was starving and thought an extra egg might be nice hehe.
I was expecting, well, fritters, not a corn pancake, but it was nice anyway, it lacked a bit of protein, i wish my egg came out abit faster :( But the hashbrowns were nice and crisp, not drenched in oil as some hashbrowns are, just right they were. & my mocha warmed me right up, this was back in April May, and it was a wet day, so it was nice to sip on this while i waited on my meal :)
You can see the lighthouse from the cafe, its a nice 10 minute walk up a hill, where you get a nice view of the ocean, and also some canons on display from a long time ago (you might find some kids straddling them for fun!)
On my 2nd visit it was with Bigbear, we decided to randomly road trip, for lunch, a nice walk, a visit to the Nan tien temple, and then back home - its really nice to get out of Sydney even if its for a little while.
seared ocean trout fillet $22
with sweet potato chips and herbed hollondaise
I wish i had abit more of the herbed hollondaise sauce, & the sweet potato chips were really tasty, it was nice to have them instead of say thich cut potato chips, or roasted potatoes.
steak sandwich $18
on sourdough with caramelized onion, tomato chutney,
garlic aoli and fries
Ian enjoyed his sandwich ( i ordered for him when he went to the bathroom), i tried abit of the bread and it was really nice and crisp! I think they might have pan fried it in some oil before bringing it out.
We both enjoyed our meals, our iced hot chocolate was a nice sweet treat, but the blueberry crumble we got for dessert- really hit the spot! We were pretty full, and decided against getting a second piece (it would've taken us into a foodcoma for the drive back home hehe)
