I think Iíve got this retirement thing figured out: sleep; wake; write; repeat. I love it!

We watched, waited, and wondered - then Cafe 81 was born
Your local cafe is your safe haven. It's easy to get to; you know the staff; and they know you. But what happens when the staff you know so well - L-E-A-V-E! Yep - it's a scary thought. But this is what happened when Re: Cafe Nate - became Cafe 81.
After more than six years of brewing the best coffee in the neighbourhood (and beyond), Josh and Deslie (and Don) moved on to another exciting phase in their lives.
Bright blue chairs now add a splash of colour and complement the green foliage that surrounds a corner of the courtyard. And there is plenty of parking at the back (entrance on Golden Links Drive), and some at the front (Byangum Road).
Since the cafe is now open on Monday nights for meals, I stopped by recently and tried a Vegetarian Filo Pastry. The first surprise was how big it was, and the second surprise was how good it tasted. I was in a rush between meetings and activities, and being able to stop by for a quick meal was super-convenient. It's best to call ahead to pre-order on a Monday night.

If you find the Golf Course, you're not far from Cafe 81. Just look for the big green and yellow banners on Byangum Road. There's a ramp down from Byangum road, or you can take the seventeen-steps. And there are only a couple of steps up if you park out the back.
Some things have changed, but the feeling that Cafe 81 is still our local, lives on. You can find Cafe 81 (Murwillumbah) on Facebook. Oh, and don't forget to hit the 'Follow' button and turn on notifications. That way, you will never miss one of the specials that are often advertised.
And if you are not a local, why not make a day of it? Call in for breakfast at Cafe 81, and then check out all that Murwillumbah has to offer.
