Girdlers Grind. Funky art and good coffee - what beachgoer could ask for more?
The strip on the shore at Dee Why has plentiful restaurants, but for those weekend breakfasters there is limited choice. Luckily, Girdlers Grind provides just the right atmosphere, coffee range and all-day breakfast offerings that a weekend breakfast requires.

Airy architecture is ideal for the coast.

Girdlers atmosphere is the first thing to strike a passer-by. While all places on this strip have a certain relaxed atmosphere, Girdlers combines a sort of roominess that allows a breakfaster to really relax. The building takes advantage of its corner position with lots of glass, allowing as much air and light in as possible. Funky artwork by local artist Miguel Gonzalez currently adorns the walls, giving something to look at should the eyes tire of the sea.

Of course, the coffee is important, and Girdlers comes through. The staff were a little distracted, but the latte that eventually made its way to my hand was everything I was looking for: strong, milky, and with a spicy undertone to add a touch of something interesting.

A quick snap of the intriguing menu. Paris couldn't come up with gallettes like these.

I didn't have time to sample the food on offer at Girdlers, but it was a close-run thing. The menu was intriguing. Under the broad headings of breads, toast, gallettes, crepes and bowls, you can find some truly inventive dishes. The turkey gallette which had two types of cheese and dijonnaise and the kale/banana/almond milk concoction of the Green Bowl seemed to be calling my name, but I had to turn away.

Another time, turkey-cheese gallette. Another time.

Girdlers is the ideal place to hang out on Dee Why's foreshore. For a relaxing, lazy weekend afternoon, it has everything you need.
