Not reaching its potential

It's got a great location, but service is slow & the dining space lacks comfort. Inside is noisey and the outdoor deck is either too cold/ too hot &/or too noisey. They need to lower the music and invest in better shading & heating solutions for winter. The food is fine but not very inventive... read more

The lobster roll is well worth a visit to this beachside cafe. The roll is delicious and provides good value for money. The cafe also provides a small range of cakes and desserts - but one wouldn't make a special trip to eat these. Other hot and cold meals are available / but my wife's favourite is the lobster roll.... More

Great location! It has quite a limited variety of foods. Often very busy and large queues are normal, with quite limited seating and space available, would not recommend for families with young children. Friendly staff.

I've now been to Diggies four or five times, always for brunch and I love it. The atmosphere is casual & friendly, it's absolutely on the beach and a perfect spot to watch the surfers as you eat. It always feels nice & open air, with the big windows folded back. I can only speak for the breakfast/brunch - and... More

location and food is superb. I have been there a few times for breakfast. The place is busy most of the time. We need to wait for a while to be seated sometime but best breakfast place at the north wollongong beach.

My wife & I have eaten here many times before, the last time was just yesterday from brunch. The food & juices are fantastic, the view of North Beach is amazing, the service is friendly & the atmosphere is fun. Prices are a tad high in my opinion but other than that, a must visit!

Tucked away next to the surf life saving club, it would be easy to pass it by, but you'd be mad if you did! This has to be one of the best beach-front restaurants on the coast. Absolute beach front with only a footpath separating this establishment from the sand. Great menu with traditional cafe-style meals. Good size servings and... More
