Location cannot be beaten

Called in for lunch and managed to get window seats. Shared fish and chips and a fennel and rocket salad. Very tasty! Washed it down with a lovely bottle of wine. What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon. Meal prices were good ($20-$25 a main) and the service was friendly and relaxed, and the... read more

Didn't want to go back cause they are SO slow to seat you, take your order, to serve you, bring meals to you and give you the bill, but the food is good and the view is spectacular

Found this place opposite our hotel on North Wollongong beach. Had a great breakfast in style. It's not cheap fare but quality with great service. Despite the rain enjoyed watching the ocean waves. The pumpkin with sage relish went well over the baked mushrooms, eggs bacon and hash browns... Yum...

In the last few visits to Diggies Cafe it was left disappointed. The main issue was attention to detail, I like my eggs fried, poached 'medium'. Now what that means is that it is not too runny and not hard cooked. Just how I like it. I'm sure this one request is not too hard for a breakfast chef who... More

Best brekkie! A great selection of breakfasts to chose from. We arrived at peak time on a Sunday morning, but only had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a nice hot chocolate and Turkish fruit bread here. Beautiful view and out of the wind! There was plenty of room this Wednesday morning and the service was great.

I'm a frequent visitor to this beachside cafe and am in love with the managements attitude. There is a Down syndrome waitor whom I absolutely adore. He is polite, courteous and delivers food with an absolute smile and manners. I enjoyed coming here at least once a week now I love it. Food is fresh modern and the place is... More

A lovely spot close to the beach to share either lunch or breakfast with Family or Friends. Even if it is not a lovely day having the clears around makes it ideal.

This has to be one of the best locations in Australia! Right on the water edge at North Wollongong Surf Club. The whole area has undergone amazing improvements in recent years. Bring your walking shoes and walk lunch off along the Blue Mile.
