So many cafes to choose from on Coogee Bay Road, but we keep coming back here. The various breakfast stacks are my personal favourite: The brekky stack or the haloumi stack. Juices also rate highly as well as the milkshakes (nice a thick on request). Coffee always good. The random Indonesian lunch dish is also delcious

Only went in for coffee. Must be backpackers working here as hard to understand and not very friendly. Average coffee, no almond milk offered! Nice outdoor seating but that's probably the only thing going for it when there are so many other cafes worth venturing out to.

Food was average and the wait was very long for the amount of people there. It was a busy street at the time so chose the less busy place. Probably a reason for that...

A must visit cafe in Coogee. I Had Avo Special for B'fast and it was just fantastic! The touch of pesto and balsamic added a great flavour to poached eggs. Changing menus to suit the seasons, always fresh, delicious and great staff. Nothing is a problem for the owner and chef to make! Best Coffee ever.! My favourite. 👍🏾👏🏾

It is wonderful to bask in the morning sun and sip a perfectly-made double espresso. Coogee Cafe is just a couple minutes away from the beach and pretty much every table is a good table. The banana bread was also quite good: Light, not too sweet and not too fatty. Good place for a morning shot of espresso.

A short stroll from the beachfront, Coogee Cafe is a good spot for a bite to eat. I've only ever been for breakfast, so I can't vouch for the lunch menu, but they have a decent range of dishes on offer - from the reasonably healthy eggs etc. to the slightly naughtier cinnamon french toast. The breakfast burger is tasty... More

If you're looking for a easy going place to have a bite before laying on the beach then this is what you're looking for. The food is always good and the location always offers different artworks you can buy or just watch!
