“Die happy with this view”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This would appear to be THE place of East Newcastle, with an uninterrupted view of the sea (and any passing whales). I've only had breakfast there and the service is top class, with not much seating room but a brisk turnover and generally friendly air. It is (so I am told) a coffee heaven, though my own hot drink choices were a tea, chai and a double bitter chocolate with the texture of sump oil – but certainly not the taste! All were excellent. Estabar is your friendly home or office when anywhere near the beach.
I'd have liked a tiny bit more choice of protein dishes on the hearty and imaginative breakfast items, besides scrambled eggs, with or without salmon. But if you only go there occasionally to eat up big this isn't going to bother you, and their hazelnut and parsley pesto (this comes with the eggs) is out of this world.

Coffee is excellent. Food is great because it is locally sourced and very tasty. Reasonably priced, great view over Newcastle Beach, friendly service, yummy gelato. I will definitely be back.

“Coffee break.”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Love their coffee. My favourite place to go and sit quietly, read the paper and people watch while looking over the ocean.

“Great Spot after a Walk along the Beach”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We often stop in here for a coffee after a nice long beachwalk . It's always busy but that's because the coffee's good and the gelato is very tempting!!!!
