Main Beach Kiosk – coffee shop in Yamba

Description

Having a cuppa and a bowl of fresh fruit salad watching the waves roll in. Wonderfully uplifting experience for tea or coffee in Yamba, in northern NSW. 

The review of this coffee shop in Yamba is designed to fit in with our tour of New South Wales outdoor swimming pools and this coffee shop was great for a post swim coffee after a dip in Yamba ocean pool. 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…

Crossing Paths, Crossing Borders

This 2016 publication recounts our journey from Yorkshire to Australia via 25 countries. It includes an annex with our 100 top tips for coffee or tea on the road, including this venue.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too..

I’m usually a bit wary of beach kiosks in terms of the quality of the cuppa, but the one at Yamba main beach is really fantastic. For a start, it’s the great views, looking over the beach and the ocean, with the ocean baths still within sight. And it’s so nice to people-watch (hundreds of nippers out for training the morning we pitched up).

Grab a fresh fruit salad, have a dip in the ocean baths, and then sample the quality coffee or loose leaf tea (and how many beach kiosks do a fresh pot of tea that good??).

We enjoyed this place so much we went back for a second visit before we left town.

Coffee shops that are also restaurants don’t always tick my boxes but Treeo in Sawtell is an exception. I love their flexibility on when you can eat what (breakfast all day is a rarity in Australia).

The coffee is top notch, from Will & Co. We happened to be in Sawtell in late afternoon (when most Australian coffee shops are shutting up shop for the day) but 4pm is our tea time, especially after a swim, and it was great to see loose leaf tea and a fine selection of cakes to choose from. This is my kind of coffee shop. 

Loved the story also of the three people who set it up a few years ago. A trio which became Treeo in the café name thanks to the magnificent old trees which stand along the middle of Sawtell’s main street. Good experience all round here.

Jally’s – coffee shop in Camden, NSW

Quality coffee in Camden NSW served by baristas who know their stuff, and an excellent range of loose leaf teas too. Surely the best coffee shop in Camden?

Jally’s was a great find for coffee in Camden. The baristas know their stuff and will discuss options with you, looking to see if their Single Origin suits for flat white, and suggesting the best bean for my lighter roast preference. 

They also do loose leaf teas which is always a plus, and a very good quality turmeric latte, which is becoming a sign of a good coffee shop if we aren’t wanting the full coffee experience. Top place with friendly vibe and relaxed ambience.

Getting there

W ended up having to be guided to Jally’s by a local gent who is a big fan of the place but acknowledged it can be hard to find if you don’t know Camden well. It’s actually on a block behind the main street of Camden facing onto a car park. So it’s tucked away on the north side of the main road and off to the left if you are heading towards Sydney.
