I love everything about this coffee shop in Malabar, from the quality of the coffee and tea they serve up, through the quirky decor with lots of recycled goods to the friendly welcome and the owners’ love of historical connections.
The review of this coffee shop in Malabar, 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 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.
I always get a bit excited when I find a coffee shop serving up one of my favourite coffee roasters’ single origins. Yes, they had a single origin Yirgacheffe from Ethiopia roasted by the wonderful White Horse Coffee people in Sutherland. Now, the guys at Heritage Kitchen Garden usually keep the single origins for their black coffee loving customers, but were happy to do me a flat white when I showed an interest. That definitely ticks my box in terms of customer service. I stayed long enough to try their house blend, which was also rather delicious, so this surely has to be the place for the best coffee in Malabar.
It’s a great spot for good tea in Malabar, since the stock the excellent loose leaf teas from Tippity.
We aren’t big on food – apart from cake! – but what this coffee shop serves up on the food menu is also pretty fabulous, as their own permaculture farm supplies lots of the ingredients. There were cakes coming out of the oven as I paid, so for cake eaters like me there is also a constant fresh supply. That’s yet more of my boxes ticked.

The end of the tramline used to be right in front of where The Heritage Garden Kitchen now reside. Of course, there are no trams in the eastern suburbs anymore so it’s a bus if you want to use public transport. There are routes from the City that stop right outside. I drove and managed to park a few minutes’ walk away. It’s a ten minute walk back to Malabar Beach and the rock pool..
