Just a quick post here to say I’ve found another great little coffee place on the highway at Mermaid Beach. The guys here serve Toby’s Estate and know their coffee, Sime said they are getting the most out of the beans, and I really enjoyed my latte. The fit out of the cafe is great, very contemporary and cool. There are milkshakes available, for those Kiwis amongst us you can get a lime milkshake (I don’t really get that at all… it’s a NZ thing…), and I just noticed on their Facebook page that they do cold brew French press iced coffee (yum!). Also there are some snacks available, made by a friend of ours including (on the day we were there) a mini Haloumi Dog, Bacon and Egg Tart and yummy looking cookies with peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Last thing I’ll say – these guys are really focused on our environment and give their coffee grinds to someone who uses them in their permaculture garden, as well as using eco products wherever possible.
