This place not only has great views over Ulladulla Harbour but they do the best coffee and tea in Ulladulla too, and they’re friendly with it. Ticks all my boxes every time.
The review of this coffee shop in Ulladulla 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 http://oceanpoolsnsw.net.au. So for now take a look at our earlier books…
Visit our books page to see all our books in more detail. You will find a description of each book, Fancy a Cuppa?, Fancy a Cuppa, USA?, Fancy a Cuppa by the Cathedral?, Fancy a Cuppa North Yorkshire?, and then links to buy.
Don’t miss this place if you’re anywhere nearby on the NSW South Coast. They use the excellent Will & Co coffees roasted up in Bondi, with a choice of house blends or single origins (and I rather liked the take away cups look, which are in fact porcelain, not paper, so no loss of taste some of us believe you get with the takeaway cups).
Tea lovers are also catered for with the wonderful Mayde Teas – a small batch, loose leaf tea company set up by a naturopath and nutritionist, so they’re probably doing you good as well as tasting delicious.
And I love the cakes here. I tried a brownie on one visit – excellent and beautifully-presented; but the thing I’ve ordered twice now is the date and walnut bread: don’t miss it; probably the tastiest of the banana bread family I have ever had in Australia. You see, sometimes it’s OK if the pool is closed and you have to make do with coffee or tea and cake rather than the healthy post swim cuppa…

Driving south down the Princes Highway, once you have Ulladulla Harbour to your left, you’ll see the terrace of Native looking out over the harbour. It’s a little set back from the Highway, though so don’t expect to see it if you’re coming up from the south!
And these guys are relatively new on the Ulladulla coffee scene, so Google Maps hasn’t yet caught up and Native itself doesn’t appear there yet…
