Cottage Point Kiosk
Feel like you're on holiday, even if it's just for a few hours.
Built around 1918, and located at the junction of Coal & Candle Creek and Cowan Creek, this rustic general store and cafe evokes the feeling of returning to a bygone era.
Arrive by road from the Ku-ring-gai National Park, or putter in by boat, and choose a seat in the outdoor courtyard or on the wrap-around verandah. The latter is my preference. The higher vantage point gives an expansive view down the bay, overlooks moored and passing boats, and allows you to observe the comings and goings of visitors and shipwrights, while you admire the historical photographs on the wall.
A free mooring is available for short provisioning stops. As well as offering a delectable selection of meals, cakes & muffins, coffee and alcohol, the kiosk sells most of the basic necessities for those who may be restocking their boat.
It's a great place to spend a relaxing few hours over breakfast or lunch. In addition to the regular menu
and seafood menu
, there are usually some pretty nice specials on the blackboard.
If you have the time and inclination, and the weather is nice, why not rent a small boat or kayak
? It's a lot of fun and the waterways surrounding this area are well worth exploring. Read more ..
