Myalla café, Bulahdelah

Amore coffee. Stroud st, Bulahdelah. A house with a café that has taken over not just the house, but the front yard as well! Staff are quiet and efficient, going about their business with a polished air.

This is an “order at counter, take table number” kind of place, with a room devoted to ice cream and confectionery. They’ve made the most of the house’s charm, painting the walls a steely silver.

Coffee takes a while, with no dedicated barista, but the staff splitting their duties. Not a place to call in if you’re in a hurry, but then why did you come off the highway in the first place, if that was your aim? It’s served hot, but it’s milky and yet still quite pleasant.

For writing, if you’ve already travelled this far, it’s a good spot to sit and put down a few pages.
