If you’re not a Wollongong local this place is a little hard to find but worth tracking down. Look for the signs in the mall and head upstairs. If you’re in a hat shop, you’re close, but not quite there. Plenty of vegan options and...More

If you didn’t know it was there you would miss it - great verandah to sit out on above the Mall. Really enjoyed the coffee and the food.

For either breakfast or lunch, choose Quay! The most mouthwatering options to choose from, and almost everything can be on a roll or come in a bowl. Their viet iced coffee is my favourite beverage at the moment.
