just had breakfast at Mudcat. My husband and I both went for the "Big Breakfast". Well, the Big Breakfast was HUGE and delicious. For what you got, I think the $17 price was very reasonable. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the view of North Beach beautiful.

we went for breakfast and were very disappointed with the service and the food. The view is brilliant. It wasn't busy, only about 15 people at 4 tables inside and outside. On arrival we waited 10 minutes to be served, I then went inside to get the waitress' attention. When our meals arrived they were cold, on cold plates and... More

Located adjacent to Nth Wollongong Beach and if here at weekends or school holidays be prepared for this cafe to be very busy. We came for lunch and luckily the manager gave us a reserved table that was for someone else (running late) or else we wouldn't have waited. It has a beachy atmosphere, part of the Novotel Hotel and... More

I was astonished that this place was actually busy when I consider my experience today. The three of us ordered and it took forever for the breakfast to arrive. Other tables were served meals before us... And they arrived after us! The hash browns were warm and soggy. The big breakfast arrived with the wrong order of eggs. Waitress then... More

You can see this location is popular just from the fully packed tables. A great location overlooking the beach; if you can see through the trees.

We were recommended the Mudcat by friends but were quite dissapointed. Parking is a bit of a nightmare as it is directly across from the beach. The cafe is under the Novotel so we ended up parking in their carpark ($5 for 2 hours). The menu was basic burgers & wraps but they did not do them particularly well. The... More

Interesting welcome. We were waiting at the front section as didnt know if it was a help yourself to menus/table or what. After a while we ended up just grabbing a table and menu. Staff seemed pretty stressed which was reflected in the rushed service. Food was ok. I had eggs(scrambled) with benidict sauce and salmon. Another had bacon n... More

Somewhat slow on service but to be expected...it was crowded and there were only 3 servers. Other than that, all good.

Dinned here a month ago and had the toasted tortilla with chicken lime and coriander couscous topped with honey shallot cream, wow how nice. the presentation was great and it tasted so lovely, im guessing the fresh herbs were the key. My friends and I think its a great spot, we loved the coffee too. Cant wait to go back.
