WITHIN the catch­ment of streets with names such as Snap­per, Flat­head and Floun­der, Et­ta­long’s Coast 175 is a real find on the NSW­cen­tral coast. There’s noth­ing fishy about the prices or the of­fer­ings at this stylish cafe, from Campos cof­fee and freshly blended juices (pear, ap­ple and lime; pineap­ple, car­rot and gin­ger) to yummy ri­cotta driz­zled with lime-in­fused honey, dot­ted with strawberry seg­ments and popped on to sour­dough fruit toast. Open from 5.30am, the cor­ner cafe is a pop­u­lar pits­top for lo­cal dog-walk­ers and jog­gers and this hol­i­day sea­son it has been packed with es­capees from the city. Decor is white and beachy-cool, there’s a com­mu­nal ta­ble as well as cosy in­door and out­door seat­ing, pots of herbs and a small se­lec­tion of pro­duce for sale. BYO and fam­ily-friendly (child-size por­tions avail­able); on the op­po­site cor­ner is Cin­ema Par­adiso for all the lat­est flicks, and it’s a short stroll from the Palm Beach-Wagstaffe ferry pier. 175 Ocean View Road, Et­ta­long Beach; (02) 4341 8080; coast175.com.
