Today I’d arranged to meet a friend at CAFE DBAR. It was her suggestion and I had been looking forward to it all week. I had visited this trendy beach café (located in Coolangatta) a few times, usually to grab a coffee before going for a walk around Point Danger headland.
I’d promised to take my little babyccino lover with me while my eight month old had some quality time with her Dad. I always enjoy the drive to the Southern end of the coast, although the M1 can be a bit of a nightmare during peak hour. I usually take a little detour past the stunning Kirra, Coolangatta, Green Mount and Rainbow Bay beaches.
We took advantage of our early arrival and walked down to the lookout over Duranbah beach. The light rain and breeze was incredibly refreshing. The dark clouds over the ocean and the menacing waves crashing over the rocks made for some great photo’s. After taking a few scenic snaps, we headed over to the café.
I had my hopes for a table in the upstairs dining room, it has an amazing view of the ocean through the panoramic windows. I was in luck and a friendly waitress managed to squeeze us in on table with a comfortable booth.
The café is known for its locally sourced ingredients and boasts a modern menu with vegan, paleo and gluten-free options.
Despite my four year old having initial disappointment that there wasn’t a pancake option on the menu the Groms Breaky of Coco pops with milk and cookies cheered her up. Both my friend and I were in an eggs benedict mood and the Classic eggs benedict on the menu didn’t disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed my coffee and my little babyccino expert gave hers the thumbs up.
CAFE DBAR is a great spot to relax over food and coffee. I love the beachy vibe of the cafe and the option of take away if you would rather go for a walk and stare at the stunning coast line views from the lookout.
Definitely worth the visit. You won’t be disappointed, that’s a promise!
