Eat out at these delicious places on the Far South Coast
When travelling it's hard to know where to go for the best eats in our hood of the Far South Coast, we've compiled a list for you for breakie, lunch and dinner. We've tried and tested these ourselves because who doesn't like eating out - right!?
There's nothing like a good feed for breakie and Eden has a really good option at Sprout. They use really fresh local produce, have a great ethos to protecting our environment and serve up yummy coffee and smoothies. They also own a little store across the road called Offshoot that has a coffee spot and enviro focussed homewares and supplies store.
Sorry but we can't go past a good pie for lunch, Wild Ryes has that and more. You might have already read our other post on Wild Ryes, Wild Ryes roasts their own coffee, makes the coffee in their cafe then to top it off they are a bakery as well! They do everything sourdough, pastries, cakes, pies everything you want in a bakeo is here. Our tip, grab some pies and head to Pambula River Mouth sit by the water on the picnic tables and take it all in.
Down at Oaklands in Pambula you'll find a little bar and beer garden ran by the good people at Longstocking Brewery. It's ran like a proper micro brewery you can try a paddle of all their current beers and brews while nibbling on some woodfired pizzas in the sun-drenched beer garden. Order a dozen of Sydney Rock oysters or two, you'll find Broadwater Oysters at Longstocking too. If you're looking for something refreshing try the cider with ice and a slice of lemon.
Pro-tip grab a mixed 6 and bring back to cruise by the fire pit over dinner.
It's a burger joint but better, it's a history filled cottage in the heart of Merimbula that make cracking cocktails and cracking burgers American style! All the craft beer you can think of available here and a fireplace inside for those winter months. The outdoor courtyard is fab with fairy lights and tables on different levels. For Sydney-siders think Shady Pines does Marys. This place gets busy so you really have to book to guarantee a table.
If you're after a fancy dinner this place has the goods, generous portions, absolutely amazing wines, fine dining at its finest. We've put this down as a recommended dinner haunt but if you're into long lunches the views over Merimbula's lake are really worth the afternoon. Day time boozy lunch level at its highest very cool modern interior which is what attracted us there in the first place. They've really captured some of the produce of the area, lots of seafood dishes on the menu and everything is made to be shared. Our favourite dish we tried was the scampi, very good sir, very good.
If you're looking for romance you'll find it here.
