Country Grocer – coffee shop in Unanderra, NSW


Best coffee in Unanderra by a country mile. Nice space with terrace seating outside (and under cover). This coffee shop on the old Princes Highway is attached to a lovely independent grocer.

The review of this coffee shop in Unanderra, NSW, is designed to fit in with our current tour of New South Wales outdoor swimming pools. There’s no book planned for now but a new website So for now take a look at our earlier books…

Best coffee in Unanderra. No wonder the terrace was full on a midweek morning, with lots of locals enjoying a cuppa after their shopping. Good coffee roasted by the excellent Paul Bassett, former World Barista Champion. Made for a silky, smooth flat white and you can choose to sit on stools in the bar area, or out on the terrace under cover from the elements. This café is attached to a rather good independent grocer in Unanderra, though it opens much earlier in the morning, meaning you can come for a cuppa before work if you are having a pre-commute swim. Nice selection of cakes and muffins (my only reservation was that they were refrigerated and cold cake is never the best).

Getting there

This independent grocer in Unanderra fronts onto the Princes Highway itself (but the old Princes Highway, not the new motorway that now zips past a bit to the east). If you are coming from the western suburbs pool (that’s Wollongong’s western suburbs by the way), you need to head south on the Princes Highway and it’s about 2 minutes’ drive on your right hand side.
