“Not sure if it is a cafe or delicatessan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We'd been attracted by the publicity for a "gluten-free" menu but struggled to see much diversity beyond the normal standard breakfast menu.
There are a couple of gluten free options amongst the cakes and muffins but without discussion with the proprietors who obviously care, it is what it is.
It is more expensive than the nearby popular Lotus Cafe and lacks the views as the Wamberal Surf Club has so its location in a suburban strip without such beach views makes it difficult to become a regular.
It does though have a range of quality products in its store so it is worth supporting as an alternative to the normal supermarkets for some supplies.
