Food scene

Superb coffee! Some nice basic options for breakfast such as: egg and bacon rolls, toasties, muffins, croissants, etc. a lovely place to sit and look out over the water. Not a sit down option for breakfast unless and the seats and grass outside. Opens early at 6.00am weekdays.
The coffee is superb here. You can also get a a quick breakfast meal such as an egg and bacon roll, croissant, etc. the muffins are baked daily and are beautiful. A lovely place to sit and admire the magical ocean views. Not a typical sit down breakfast service. They open at 6.00am weekdays and 7.30am weekends. Our favourite on the Coast, my daughter especially loved the muffins !

Fearless Freddy currently has an Italian Chef from Sydney, who does great authentic pastas and pizzas. The dining experience isn’t amazing, it is basic, but we certainly enjoy the food. Maybe a better takeaway option to eat back at Beach Haven, which we typically do.

Our family enjoys a meal here, as it is also a great place for the kids to jump on the jumping pillow or visit the games room (basic). The meals have generally been good here. On a recent stay, the eye fillet was exceptional! If riding, a great place to hop off the bikes and enjoy a meal and refreshment, as it is at the bottom of the town link trail.

It has been a while since we have had a meal at White Sands, however they have generally excellent. It is a great place to visit for a wine, or to sample their Iron House brewery brew. For littles, there is a fun little indoor playroom that can entertain them whilst the parents sit back and relax. It is around 10 minutes from the house.

One of our favourite places to go at any time of the year. Only a short stroll from the property, in summer, it is a magical and safe place to swim and in winter, a special place to watch the waves roll in and to enjoy a sunrise to sunset.

We recently visited the Serpentarium with our children and it was superb. Make sure you visit between 12.00 - 1.00pm to see the snake show, which gives people opportunities to handle the snakes (definitely wasn’t my scene!). It is small with only a small number of reptiles, but the experience for our children was well worth it and we were there for over an hour. A great rainy day activity. In St Helens.
