This wholefoods cafe delivers super fresh, honest, simple fare that is also very yummy. Serving All Press coffee and a range of other nutritious beverages. Arrive anytime between 8.30–11.30am for brekkie. Warning – it is always very difficult to decide what to have, everything sounds (and is) so good!

Perched by Ulladulla Harbour you will find Native. This eatery serves up dishes loaded with superfoods and local veggies plus some amazing smoothies. If you’re an early riser, you’re in luck as brekkie begins at 6.30am, which means it comes with incredible coastal sunrises. Spice up your morning with chilli fried eggs, corn, guacamole, turtle beans, coriander and house-made flatbread. Or start sweetly with a mango chia pot, packed with passionfruit, coconut milk and roasted macadamias. The coffee is Will & Co’s Eight-O-Eight house blend, plus there are Mayde organic teas, turmeric lattes and a ‘rosetta’ latte: local milk infused with beetroot, hibiscus, ginger and maca.

A mark committed to quality, diligence and a little bit of tomfoolery.’ Sunday Life Coffee was forged from years of trade experience in speciality coffee from across the United Kingdom, wider Europe, New Zealand and Australia. This knowledge is now dedicated to helping develop and foster the coffee culture on the South Coast, NSW. This place is all about coffee with a few sweet treats on hand. The shop also doubles as a vinyl record trader so you can peruse the collection of vintage tunes whilst sipping on your bevvy. Make sure to secure a spot at the “Pac-Man” table where you can have a few goes at some of your favourite childhood arcade games.
