Found this little place on the beach while visiting Wollongong and was not disappointed. Food was quite nice but the view is divine. Found the service nice and efficient and would recommend it to anyone.

I keep coming back hoping for improvement but sadly I'm disappointed each time. We had lunch here with my mum and her elderly friend for her 80th birthday. Firstly the lemon squash was served with no glass, bottle of soft drink with straw floating in it - very average! Then, the barramundi was served up on a (what looked like... More

This is a lovely spot for sharing lunch with friends. It is on a nice position on North Wollongong Beach and on a good weather day you couldn't ask for a better spot. Beware though it is popular and is very busy so waiting for table or food can be a part of the experience. The food is so good... More

My favorite brunch place in Wollongong. Can't beat the location. Also, great fresh fruit juices and glutenfree bread and dessert options. Always has interesting specials. Can be busy on the weekend but food comes out rather quick and quality is consistently high.

Perched just a metre or two from beautiful North Beach in central Wollongong, Diggies is a great spot for a casual breakfast or lunch. Best in good weather, the food is always interesting and tasty and the menu changes regularly. The service can sometimes be a little patchy but it's always friendly and relaxed. It's a very popular spot so... More

The short black coffees, always a test of a barista, were good and, at $2.50, cheap. The food was simple but good quality. I particularly liked the range of breakfast dishes available. Cold drinking water was free.

Heard a lot about this place. Not impressed. Its in a nice location though so could be worth going for the view. Service is a bit pretentious and they like to keep you waiting in line only to tell you later that there is a half hour wait. Food overpriced for stock cafe fare. Coffee average in terms of both...

Very attentive. Food hot and very tasty. A little bit of everything for everyone. However, muesli was like a quarter cup of porridge in a bowl of fruit - grapes with seeds :-(

We had a table for 4 at Diggies for breakfast after reading many good reviews.... to start we had to wait about 15 minutes to get a table which I didnt really mind because I figured it would be worth it. We sat down and ordered some drinks, 2 of us getting milkshakes and I had a smoothie. When the... More

We have had breakfast here on Saturdays on a number of occasions. It is always busy with early morning cyclists and runners making it a final destination so invariably there is a twenty minute wait while tables are cleared as people leave. Excellent menu - very creative.
