Description: "free your mind, body and soul at Freedom Cafe; good food, great company and beautiful surroundings" The café-in-a-can is a concentrate of all we enjoy most in entertaining. It’s intimate, relaxed, and with décor by crack Egg Designs duo Roche and Greg Dry, unselfconsciously stylish. The menu, like the lady, evolves constantly, guided only by the mantra: ‘local, fresh, direct.’Guests watch through a hatch in the compact courtyard kitchen, even wander through this en route to the loo. They linger contentedly under trees strung with jam-jar lights and beaded dreams (‘joy,’ ‘love,’ ‘peace’), nursing cappy and cupcakes on yellow wire Egg rockers or black plastic daxie benches. Then as the shadow of neighbouring St Mary’s church spire creeps slowly across the sand.

Food was a fresh unique blend of flavours ( poached eggs with sweet potato rosti, seasoned with black salt crystals)while portions were large enough to satisfy hungry appetites. Juices are freshly squeezed.
The unusual setting for this eatery is an old shipping container while some of the seating is provided by elongated sausage dog benches.
A return visit is essential
