Scrub Turkey

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.
