A quick business meeting, rainy day, need coffee and where do we go. Diggies! With great outdoor seating it was still a lovely place to watch the waves and the weather. Coffee - fantastic, service was quick with attending to our order to serving. I have eaten there many times and I will be eating there many more.

Our experience with breakfast was disappointing. Our coffees were slow to arrive and cold, despite a request for extra hot. One meal arrived cold and took 25 mins to return, following a request to staff to locate it. The table staff were courteous and very helpful, so I imagine the problems were from the kitchen and coffee bar. The meal... More

Went to breakfast at Diggies Saturday morning. I have been there many time previously but not for at least 12 months, and usually felt that food & service was good.. not this time! After being seated, i waited about half an hour before asking for my order to be taken by the waitress who was standing around doing nothing. We... More

Busy busy busy, but knowing this we pre-booked a table. Service not too bad considering how busy it was. Prime post overlooking the beach with fab sea views. Food excellent. Mid range prices. Had breakfast here also evening meals and on other occasions just coffee. All good stuff. Highly recommended.

I used to go to diggies at least once a fortnight but the food has definitely gone down hill this past year, I now no longer go. But it still is an awesome atmosphere and lovely customer service, but now with mediocre food.

We had brekkie here. Their big brekkie was good as were the eggs. The flat white coffee was excellent, so was the service. I will say it was a bit pricey.

I have always been enamored with the beautiful styling and location of Diggies. There is no place in Wollongong more beautiful to meet up with friends in my opinion. Who doesn't want to sit directly opposite the beach and watch the ships sail across the horizon? Or simply sit and people-watch over a hot coffee? However, despite such gorgeous surroundings,...

Sadly, I cannot recommend Diggies. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and the long waiting times on 2 separate occasions were a marked disappointment

After our early morning beach walk we stopped at Diggies for breakfast. Our friends who are locals highly recommended Diggies. We ordered mugs of soy coffee, that arrived almost immediatly. Great strong coffee. We both ordered scrambled eggs served with sourdough toast. Again there was practically no wait. The the eggs were delish. The view of the beach and ocean... More
