I’m a bit of a fan of the scrub turkey. They’re a clumsy looking bird that you either tend to love or hate – I’m in the love category. To me, they’re part of the coast. Anyone whose had their lunch stolen or their camp site ransacked by one would, however, probably wouldn’t agree with me.
There’s one scrub turkey, though, that I think everyone can love – the cafe on Nicklin Way at Wurtulla.
The coffee is seriously good and the menu is small, but based around organic and sustainable produce. There’s a good range of the usual breakfast suspects (I had the smashed avo with feta and a side of crispy back), a few good burgers – than can also be served naked i.e. without the bun – and some daily specials.
There are long benches that are perfect for working – as I was supposed to be doing – and the shelves are full of all sorts of sustainable products.
Sure, it’s located on Nicklin Way, but enough off the road to minimise the noise – and there’s plenty of parking.
