We had arvo tea here a week ago and noticed that breakfasts were quite interesting. So we came back and were not disappointed. Creative, innovative breakfast menu and very good coffee. So Mockingbird, you're now on our rotation for top cafes in the region.

Had the Avo Toast with poached eggs. Bit of a staple breakfast meal for me. Uniquely presented allowing you to have as much or as little avo as you want. Lovely coffee and finished off with one of their healthy juices Great menu

I have just eaten a fresh fish burrito that was wonderful. From checking out what everyone else was eating it all looked great. Very friendly atmosphere. Fresh, healthy food and good coffee.

This sneaky little cafe is Kingscliff's best kept secret. A little cafe that makes its own tasty cakes and cakes by day and by night - voila! - a ninja restaurant. Of course, it would never call itself a restaurant because it is all knives and forks on the bare table but oh the food! I am ace go and... More

Mockingird Cafe on the beach front in Kingscliff is a great place to pause on an exploration on Northern new South Wales. It is the first place I take southern visitors after I rescue them for the Gold Coast airport experience! Firstly and most importantly, the coffee is excellent. Food options are varied, often prepared with locally sourced ingredients and... More

The service is always prompt and with a smile. The menu varies regularly and there is some adventure in the creations. The quality is of a better standard than you average quality - it is a cafe I return to regularly. Good coffee too

Had a lovely breakfast here on a busy Saturday. Instead of just the stock standard breakfast options, there were unique dishes and we wanted to try them all! The meals we got were large servings and all made from local produce. The poached eggs with corn bread is absolutely amazing - highly recommend it!

Always drop in here for a coffee whenever we're visiting the area. Friendly staff great service and the house made cakes are a real treat! Brownies are the best!

There is no shortage of cafes in Kingscliff and we have tried most of them. This was our first visit to Mockingbird which looked busy but invitingly friendly. Miss Lizzy is a bit of a pancake aficionado so she chose them while I went for the Crispy Eggs... duck eggs with an interesting but very refreshing Asian salad with rice.... More
