Tamarama Café, Tamarama

La casa del café coffee. Near Pacific Ave, Tamarama. About as close to the sand as you can get without placing the tables on the beach, this outdoor only café has a choice of shaded and non-shaded tables. Families, kids, even dogs wander past enjoying the summer weather: the café doesn’t usually open on rainy days.

The café itself has more of a converted kiosk feel; small range of menu options, no grease trap means no eggs. Ambient music is pumped out, drowning out – for the most part – the sound of the coffee grinder.

Coffee is served quite quickly, given the signs near the counter that urge patience. Coffee is hot, the milk thick, and the flavour inoffensive.
