Competition for your food dollar is pretty fierce at Kingscliff with cuisines from many parts of the world available. Alfresco dining is popular here and at award winning Cafe Zingara the tables are full and business is brisk.
There's a reason for this - the motto here is "Coffee with passion .... food with soul" and that really sums this cafe up beautifully. The food here is always good with fresh produce heading the bill. Breakfast dishes are so generous you couldn't possibly eat lunch, and lunch dishes so good that you have to make it back here just to try them.
A daily coffee and cake deal for $8.50 beckons to those not quite ready to tackle a full meal and offers up treats like hazelnut brownies, herb scones with tomato chutney and apricot and coconut slice. Teamed with Amore coffee, these are a nice little taster for what Cafe Zingara has to offer.
Whether you choose to sit inside or dine alfresco where you can catch the sea breezes, you are greeted warmly. The staff here are very friendly and the service is prompt. The cafe has a loyalty system, rewarding regulars for their patronage.
Situated right across from the beach and caravan park and close to the newly refurbished Kingscliff Beach Hotel, Cafe Zingara is very conveniently located. Take a stroll along Marine Parade, browse through the interesting range of shops and enjoy a pitstop at one of the best cafés on NSW's north coast.
