Top 10 Central Coast Brunch Spots

I don’t know if you know already but my hometown is swimming in some top notch cafes! The Central Coast, in my humble opinion, is one of Australia’s most beautiful and under-rated regions. Located just 1.5 hours north of Sydney, with amazing beaches, great walking trails and delicious foodie spots! I’ve put together a little list of some of my favourite Central Coast Brunch places!

*Disclaimer, after completing this post I kinda realised I’ve only showcased the greater Terrigal/Avoca area haha, in a bubble much? So, my dear friends, I have made it my mission to eat my way around the Central Coast and bring you some more amazing brunchy goodness! Stay tuned 😉

Like Minds
Once an old corner shop, Like Minds is much more than a cafe. This humble space lends its location to be an exhibition space, creative studio, lush veggie patch and when its not serving coffee during the day holds cool local events!

The owners have put love into everything they do and this is shown in the exceptional coffee and food! My favourite is the Smashed Avo with Goat Cheese!

They are all about fresh produce, sustainability & giving back to the local community. Sit back with a coffee in the garden and enjoy a long lunch with your closest friends.

Tip: They are closed Mondays 🙂

The Surf Cafe
Located under Terrigal Surf Club on Terrigal Beach this made the list for several reasons! It’s definitely my most visited cafe on the coast. Also my cheeky puppy Jada won’t let me walk past, you see the very kind owner Dave has a very soft spot for my Puglet and every time we are there he comes over and gives her treats 🙂 :)! Apart from being incredibly pet-friendly, this cafe delivers exceptional coffee with an even better view!

  • I am a big fan of relaxing at coffee shops and especially of enjoying a good meal at one. You live in my kind of town. Everything looks and sounds wonderful, and so many great coffee options. I discovered smashed avocado on our last trip to Melbourne, and love it.
