The River Rock Café, Bermagui

Danes coffee. Outdoor seating for 15 overlooking the river, and indoor seating for about twenty; in the corner is some music gear for their live music nights. Priding themselves on slow food, the meals are nonetheless prepared quite quickly.

With its bright, seaside interior colour scheme, it’s an easy place to slow down and take it easy. There’s a mosaic of mermaids on one wall, and a computer with internet access in a corner.

Coffee is freshly ground, and served hot, with a head of foam, but i’m not a big fan of its initial flavour: over time, though, the vibe of the café won me over, and I left the place happy and refreshed.
