Not in fairy meadow (it's at North Beach in wollongong), this is the picture perfect beachside cafe. Home to fitness freaks, cyclists, dog walkers and those just soaking up the vibe, it's at the northern end of the Blue Mile (a beachfront walkway from north 'gong to the lighthouse). Great menu, with take-away from one end of the place and sit-down at the other. Best spot in wollongong

Looks like a nursery from the main road, but it's a massive fruit shop/deli/supermarket. Amazing selection of everything (especially smallgoods and italian/greek stuff) - just beware that the cheaper fruit and veg is cheaper for a reason!
