Merlo coffee. In the midst of the italian heritage museum is a cafe with well-priced food and coffees. A worthy distraction on the trip north between ballina and the gold coast. Be aware, though: there’s no eftpos here.
Coffee is ready with the food orders – the food is freshly made – it’s not ground straight before tamping, though. It’s hot, good texture, and tastes similar to a grinders cup: a solid, re-energising drink.
