Estabar is such a wonderful place! We have been visiting on a regular basis for 2 years now, and it is consistently of high standard! My favourite menu items are the caramel latte (baristas are amazing!!!), the pear and ricotta loaf with vanilla ricotta (don't knock it until you try it!) and the Afrogato (vanilla bean gelato with a shot of warm, fresh coffee poured over the top!) YUM! My husband can not visit without getting the Byron Bay Bircher Muesli & the spanish hot chocolate (served with a little side of hazelnuts!) Simply out of this world! We love the atmosphere right across the road from Newcastle Beach- both indoor and outdoor seating, with friendly staff!

I had a business breakfast meeting at Estabar and found everything in order. If anything, the staff are working better together than on previous visits. We had a simple, healthy option of bircher muesli, one earl grey tea and one orange fruit jiuce. The muesli was very well presented, tasty and not too sweet, though I think that some might be disappointed by the portion size. I wasn't. The juice was fresh, cold and invigorating. My only gripe is nothing to do with the coffee shop, but why do (middle-aged male and female) cyclists have to dress with their entire genitalia showing through thinly stretched lycra? It really is a disgusting sight!

We usually stop in here a few times every year.
Nice friendly staff who are efficient and organised.
Right across the road from Newcastle beach. Great stop for coffee or gelati.
Great seasonal menu, always enjoy the great food & coffees.

Very nice for breakfast, lunch or anytime snack. As others report, choice of gelato with a shot of espresso poured over it is an indulgence not to be missed. Beware, they don't serve cola! But everything they do serve tastes great, in my experience. I particularly love their fruit and nut bread with jam, and their lemon polenta cakes where you get genuine shreds of lemon peel. The staff are generally friendly and helpful, willing to sing Happy Birthday if appropriate.

Gelato with a shot of espresso poured over the top, mixing, melting, MAGICAL! Only a short stroll over to Newcastle Beach too... Love it!
