Aroma coffee. Corner of Lawrence Hargrave Drive and Railway Pde, Thirroul. Driving down from Sydney to Wollongong I saw this place out the car window, and after a long drive it was something of an oasis to call in to on the way back north. Plenty of tables outside, and then surprisingly few tables when you walk inside. Imagine my surprise, after ordering some food, a coffee, and a couple of babycinos when they say “have a seat in the bookshop”. Walk through the interior door and you’re in a spacious bookshop that seems to have an emphasis on cookbooks. There’s even a second hand section.
The food is freshly made and very tasty, and the coffee is competently put together. If you’re down the coast looking for a place to stop and recharge, then this is a good one.
