Cold & windy, standing at the Eden wharf looking at the fishing vessels at Twofold Bay was nice but damn it was cold. Being weak city-folk we simply needed a wind break & some respite. The tourist complex of restaurants & cafes on the wharf was always going to be the natural refuge in this small town & the biggest & fanciest looking place was the Wharfside Café.
Behind the large tinted glass windows were those big outdoor gas heaters, from the outside looking in it was like seeing the clouds parting & the sunshine shining thru. City people would be right at home here, the modern menu & interior go a long way to making lunch a relaxing & enjoyable leisure. Not indulging in anything too complicated, being on a wharf in front of the sea we had a strong urge to eat fish & chips, newspaper wrap variety but the fancy kind served on a plate with knife & fork. As strange as it is to eat chips with a fork it seems overly civilised in a place so far from the big cities. In any case, the view & the warmth made it hard to leave & so a few drinks later it was time to move on.
The Sapphire Coast is a proud oyster producing region so it was a must to indulge in the local produce, needless to say we like fresh oysters & the ones presented were delicious. The Eden wharf houses working deep sea fishing vessels & leisure ships for whale watching, naturally the wharf has a small tourist precinct which is home to several café’s & food options which range in price. The Wharfside Café is probably on the more costlier side by local standards but it is not too expensive. Staff were neatly presented & very courteous, it was a pleasure to be there.
Being a cold winter’s day with the windows & doors closed from the wind it was very aromic smelling roasting coffee whiffing around the café. Coffee lovers might appreciate this more than us but from my limited knowledge I thought the Di Bella coffee brand was pretty refreshing.
