I had my worst meal ever at Diggies yesterday. I have previously found the menu interesting and enjoyed my meals there. Yesterday, the lunch choices seemed limited, I settled on the chicken salad expecting something relatively healthy, light and tasty. What arrived was very different. Two large pieces of chicken, crumbed and battered, sitting on top of a very ordinary... More

Diggies is one of the best places to have breakfast or lunch in Wollongong. The service is prompt and the food is excellent.

Our daughter moved from the States to the Wollongong area about 9 years ago. This was the first stop when we came to visit, even before she took us to her home. We have returned here for breakfast on all our subsequent trips. It's right on the beach and we always spend some time there after breakfast. Great food and... More

Great view, great coffee, great food at this stylish little eatery directly on the beach. We'll be back for sure next time we visit Wollongong.

Relaxed café dining with good service and fairly cheap drinks. Views to the beach which make a pleasant experience. Good quick service and food was tasty and very reasonably priced.

I went to Diggies to have a nice family lunch with my husband, daughter and seeing eye dog. At arrival at staff member told us we had to sit outside in the cold, windy, rainy weather because I had a dog. Any assistance dog is legally allowed in any public area obviously this staff has not been properly educated in... More

Diggies is one of my absolute favourite places to eat, excellent location by the beach, great tasting changing menu and very affordable. Probably one of the best places in wollongong. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because sometimes the service of the staff is not that great, they do not lift their heads when walking past... More

I came down to this cute little cafe by the beach in April this year for brunch. The service was great and the staff were very helpful. I sat with a view of the beach which looked spectacular with a storm rolling in.

You can't book this café on the beach and my friends and I were very lucky to secure a table for four at about 11:00am on a stunning Saturday morning. There is an extensive menu with something for everyone. Certainly my three friends are I felt spoilt for choice. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the food arrived in good... More

I met with different groups of friends here over the past week. My coffee - bowls of skim o'lait were consistently hot and strong. On our second visit my friend was halfway through her coffee when she found part of a sugar sachet in her coffee- none of us had used sugar! Gross! We all then left our coffees as... More
