In an area where decent coffee is hard to find this is a wonderful find. The TA reports are supported by the queue of people. Having said that it is well organized and the wait is not long.
They provide chairs to sit out on the lawn and look out to the sea.
The kids had hot chocolate and banana milkshake. Which both got thumbs up.

Having read about Coffee Cat on TA thought we better give it a try. Pretty upmarket cafe on wheels with well made coffee with a good range of options. Enterprising little business doing a good job in Esperance.

This was the best coffee I had on my entire trip and it pulled up outside my hotel The Jetty Resort so was woken up bythe smell of fresh brewed coffee.

Did a trip with my dad crossing the Nullarbor. My dad is very fussy about good coffee and was disappointed with everything he had tried for the whole trip.... and went on and on about it.
On arriving in Esperance we drove past Coffee Cat with a crowd around it. As there was such a large clientelle of locals (joggers, walkers, etc) I suggested he try there. My dad is in his 70s and was dubious about the standard of coffee produced from a business in a van but as soon as he saw the quality of the crema he smiled and sat down with the view and quietly appreciated his coffee. The following morning he quickly rushed through breakfast so he could have a lovely coffee and view but they weren't there on the weekend.... how sad
Great coffee, wonderful location, not there on weekends which is a shame

Thanks for your comments, and for taking the time to review us. We are genuinely sorry that we can no longer open on weekends - we did weekend trade for 7.5 years - but it came time for us to lead a normal life for a while, either that or sell up. We are passionate about good coffee and love our business, the change to weekday trading has enabled us to stay happy and keep making coffee :-)

We enjoyed our early morning coffee on the foreshore at Coffee Cat. Doesn't get much better then that! We had friends meet us in Esperance and we said that they had to try Coffee Cat so the next day (Saturday) we went and, no Coffee Cat. So off to Dome we went and then the next day we thought surely they have to be there, it's Christmas Holidays and Tourist season. Nope not there on a Sunday. Sadly we all left the next day and our friends never got to experience Coffee Cat. But to be honest as nice as the coffee is, it is the location that makes it.
