“if the weather is good, this is the place for breakfast”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

right beside the boardwalk at main beach, location and outdoor tables, make a perfect setting for breakfast. The coffee was very good, our healthy choice breakfasts most enjoyable and staff pleasant. The system here is select and sit at table of your choice, order at counter, get a number and staff will bring food and drinks to your table. Not sure how this works in busy summer months but no problem off season. Very relaxed and casual and on the day we were there, patrons covered all age groups and demographics.

“Excellent Coffee”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We used this place whilst on a visit to Forster for a few days. They open nice and early for a pre surf coffee. My wife had a couple of meals and loved them and we found the coffee to be excellent. The service is very fast and efficient and the view speaks for itself.

“Beach Bums Cafe Forster”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Nice place to sit (if weather is good and not windy or raining) to watch the surf rolloing and enjoy a light refreshment with friends. Food not memorable, but OK. Service fine. Order at counter and then wait a table with number displayed. Seems a popular spot as most tables were occupied on the times we have dropped in.
